The only thing I don't like about the aluminum pad is that the edges are bare aluminum, and it can at times cause your wrist to get cold.
Do they still sell that aluminum mouse pad? I want one, but I can't find it anywhere.

Also, do you think the XFX war pad would work well with the mouse?

Well it's all personal preference but having enhance pointer precision on and having the mouse sensitivity in Windows at anything other than 6/11 (the sixth position of the eleven available to you) will result in acceleration being applied to your cursor. Now to me (and many others) acceleration is bad - anything which takes away that 1:1 response which is so important to the muscle memory response in gaming is not good.

I need to know that if I move my mouse a given distance that it will always result in the same amount of cursor/aiming movement onscreen, no matter how fast I move my mouse. Acceleration removes that predictability as it's much easier to repeatedly move your arm/hand a given distance than it is to move it the same speed every time.

If you want to change the speed of your mouse then it's generally better use the DPI setting on the mouse rather than the Windows mouse sensitivity.

As I said though, it's all personal preference smile.gif

At most they're usually a week, but more often it will be 2-3 days. If you're having trouble then PM me your email address and I can chase it through with support.

I bought mine at Memory Express, but they no longer have them. I looked on tiger direct.ca and newegg.ca but they don't have it either.

I can't really speak for pads I haven't used. It's definitely a gamble.

I agree that it has a lot to do with personal preference. I've been playing games with acceleration since Microsoft added it into Windows, and I have gotten quite used to it.

I decided to go with the warpad. It seems to be a good mouse pad so far, but there are some tracking issues; they get somewhat noticeable when I have to move the mouse very slowly.

That sucks. That's the chance we have to take though. If you bought it locally, you could always take it back and try something else. I've heard that the razer pads work well.....

I mostly bought the pad for the wrist rest, so I am going to keep it. I am currently using a piece of foam board on top of it, and it works; I'm probably going to go to a store and see if I can find a piece of metal that would work as a suitable surface.

Here's an example of what happens, the left is on the pad, the right is on the foam board.



Edit: I have just realized that I cannot find a single surface that this mouse does not jitter on; I've decided to return it because of this. I'm not sure if mine was defective or something, but the problems are making me miss me old trouble free Deathadder, so I'm going to go back to that.

Well, my right click button has completely failed and clicks whenever it wants, but never when I press the button :/
