Fray? Apparently YOU don't know how to take good care of it. It's how your habits in the room with the mousepad and how you use it. I pack my mousepad back into the retail box when not in use such as if i'm out of the house or asleep. Prolong it's lifetime. I can tell you were obviously hitting the sides and maybe drank over the mousepad causing your pads to fray. I had this only a couple of months now and it's still like new. Trust me it's how you take care of it.

i use the Razer Goliathus Alpha Control, love it and works great.
Like 78@pwnt4lif3 (god that hurt reading the name), i roll up the mouse pad when I'm not using it.

I tuck my mousepad in for night night. I love my mousepad.

I don't need you to tell me how I take care of my things because I can handle that just fine thanks Normal maintenance of a pad shouldn't require putting it into a box every night when not in use. That's the silliest thing I've ever heard about a mouse pad. not to mention it isn't required under a standard warranty. If my pad lasts me 2-3 years I'll gladly buy another one. But please feel free to elaborate on how a mouse pad in a box is really extending the life of the pad anymore than it is sitting on a desk. Are you really that OCD?

I don't hit the sides of my pad. I don't eat green eggs and ham. I don't drink over my mouse pad nor do I see how that would cause fraying and your overall logic is baffling. The fraying comes simply from rubbing of my wrist against the front edge as I make large swipes with my mouse. This is actually very common with many gamers and friends that I know. There's a reason why manufacturers like the XTrac and Artisan make pads with fray resistant edges.

I would be more good-mannered than that. Agreeing with exousia, taking the mousepad off the desk every time you leave it sounds silly to me. They are made to be on the desk, not confined because their quality is lacking. That's like buying a new car that is obviously ready to fall apart, and instead of buying a new one, you keep it in a car bag all day. I have Razer Vespula, it is hardened plastic with a gel wrist support, and I don't have to worry about fraying.

I'm still using my FUNC surface 1030 and have been for about 9 years now. (one replacement during that span because of a puppy that missed me during the day, lol)


My lone complaint would be size but otherwise it's been excellent. I'm not sure if they are even still in business though.

It's nice, small and costs little. I'm going to use it with a Logitech MX518.
I would suggest you reconsider and get this instead...

X2 <3 1030 Archetype



For me the size is perfect. Double sided speed and control in nice. Liked my first one so much I recently bought extras just in case they quit making them. That might have been a bad move because I'm not so sure this thing will ever wear out. And I might have just spit coffee on mine while reading about proper care for a mouse pad.
