While I have owned a variety of mousepads over the years, the only hardpad I used for this specific sensor (in the G500) was the razer sphex. Tracking seemed to be excellent. It is also inexpensive and in the same size-category as the qck. Since it's not ultra-smooth like some hard pads, the transition from cloth may be a little easier. Though take into account that switching to a hard surface may take some getting used to.
You can try and see whether you have the same problem, simply by fast swipes on medium sensitivity (turn acceleration off in the software). Generally though, if there was no problem that bothered you before dont worry too much about it. Just as an example, its not a problem that is gonna hinder you when aiming in a First person shooter. It might bother you when you need to quickly turn around and do a fast swipe for example. But even then, it depends on your settings and the speed at which you swipe. The problem is most pronounced when swiping a large distance at a very high speed.
People generally tend to overstate tracking problems. Just make sure the acceleration thing is not something that happens noticably too often. You can play with it, unless you are a competitive gamer.Edited by kazuyamishima - 4/29/11 at 11:06am
