None whatsoever!

I use a wireless optical mouse and use the table (made from tropical wood) as one giant mouse pad. Complete freedom and it works splendidly well! I can have my arm laying on the table without the bump of the mouse pad too.

In my opinion, if you've got a good surface that does not confuse the mouse's tracking mechanism, mouse pads are completely useless and even detrimental to the huge benefits of being absolutely free to use your mouse anywhere on the table.

If you haven't ever had a better mouse, or a mechincal keyboard how would you know? And a mousepad usually doesnt help you game just makes things more comfortable and lasts longer.

I've got this mousepad from a vacation in the UK, London.
I loved the subway and I bought it as an souvenir.

For lower sensitivities, maybe. I game from 900-1800 DPI and rarely move my mouse more than a few inches in either direction. I also use the QcK, which is something like 15" wide. I also rest my arm on my desk, but the soft cloth of the mousepad feels a lot more comfortable than my wooden desk.

I've been using it like this for years and it's great! Of course, there are surfaces that don't play well but fortunately my table is awesome for this.

The thing about not moving the mouse more than a few inches to each side is of course true, but not having to even worry about that makes me free to sit in whatever fashion I want and use the mouse wherever I want.

Sometimes, when I'm just browsing pages I actually have the mouse near me, behind the keyboard, with my right arm to the left, holding the mouse, just browsing and clicking. People with mouse pads probably never even thought of doing this since they are trapped by that area. I'm telling you, best thing there is. And I do very well in gaming too (not in that position though, of course LOL)
