you will probably want to go with plastic over cloth. they have good tracking because the surface is flatter, good glide, easy to clean and durable. plastic however is noisy, wears down teflon feet and is more expensive.

steelseries 4HD is $19.99.

glass is another option it has the best tracking because it is completely flat, great glide, easier to clean, durable because glass ages slowly, teflon feet wear is little. glass however needs a good sensor, can break, noisy and is more expensive.

steelseries experience I-1/2 is $29.99-49.99.

What is the diffrence between 4HD,S&S,SP And others..
How are Razer's pads? Sphex as a cloth and destructor as a plastic pad?
*im sorry about too many questions i just wanna do a good buy

S&S, SP are larger than the 4HD and have a smooth glide. the 4HD is smaller and has a rough glide. SP is the second version of the S&S and has a rubber base where the S&S has a spray on rubber base.

I don't like Razer surfaces because they only sell a limited amount and they are expensive, almost guaranteed to wear out.

steelseries started as a company selling surfaces and have a variety of materials, layers and dimensions that are used by professional and amateur gamers worldwide.

If a cloth pad gets dirty, when can it be cleaned?

get a bottle of isopropyl or isopropanol and distilled water. cut the isopropyl with distilled water and dampen a tack cloth with it. pat the tack cloth against the surface repeatedly. do not rub or scrub. let it dry over night.

I use distilled water and isopropyl to clean my surface, mouse, monitor (main ingredients in lcd cleaner) and water cooling so it's a wise investment, I also think it's what Func recommends for cleaning their surfaces.
