Mousepads?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
First of all, in this day and age of laser tracking @5700dpi and other sensing technologies, why do people still use mousepads? With that said, what is the best mousepad for the G500?

Puretrak Talent. Best cloth mousepad you can get, settle for nothing less.

for the g500 i'd go for a hard surface over a softer surface as it'll help the negative sensitivity out a bit.

Even though you can get away with not using a mousepad, it creates a different feeling based on the pad. Some people want it more slick while others prefer something that gives them a little more control. I've had a few different pads. I would recommend the 4HD/9HD (only difference is size) from SteelSeries for a hard pad or the Puretrak Talent for cloth. I also really loved the Qck+ from SteelSeries.

I agree with Eagle1337 that a hard surface is the way to go for that mouse. There is some acceleration from the actual mouse sensor that can not be disabled. It seems to be heightened by cloth pads.

The 4HD/9HD isn't the smoothest surface IMO, but I prefer not to feel like its on ice. It has a little texture to it to make it very comfortable. Easy enough to move and easy enough to stop on point.

Hoped that helped a little.

I really like the Steelseries QcK+ to be truthful. Very thin, and no friction at all.

Well almost everyone has a different surface their mouse is used on. Some people are even using glass in which of course you'll have to have a pad. It's all preference really.

I really like my Xtrac Ripper. Very thin with a large surface area to never have your mouse drop off. It's not real expensive either.

It comes down to personal preference no mouse pad is really better than another. I vote for a xtrac pad ripper,i have the XXL and it is great!
