I just pulled the trigger on a G700, I'm so sick of having cheap mouses.
I lurked a bit for info but I can't seem to find anything sure. So, tell me OCN, what's the best mousepad for a Logitech G700?
(Oh, just to point out, I tend to prefer hard surfaces)

There is no such thing as "the best mouse pad for a G700".

There's what's compatible with iffy sensors and then there's what kind of surface your're biased to. If you don't have a bias then I would recommend the Artisan HIEN KAI.g3 any day of the week.

Thanks for the input! I know that there isn't the omgperfectmousepad for every mouse in the world, but I kept reading something about some sensors being picky, and since there wasn't actually anyone talking about mousepads for this particular mouse I just stopped to ask. I really don't want to buy a 30€ mousepad to discover that it would have been better to buy another one of a different type.
For example, a lot of people are recommending the Steelseries SX. I personally don't even know how it feels like. Would it combine well? - but mostly, is all that money really worth it?
Lol it must have been asked like 30 time in the last week, sorry for that.

How's the material of the SX? And how does it compare to the 9HD?

SX. It's aluminum and very fast, but still precise, lasts a long time, and tracks really well. Only two downsides I'd say are it's relatively louder than a cloth and could be a little bigger. I don't like the feel of cloth on my fingers and I had to keep buying new mousepads everyyear.

the sx is incredibly smooth due to it being aluminum. the 9hd has more resistance due to this. not as much as resistance as cloth, which makes it very pleasant since it takes a load of your hands.
the sx is an extremely well made mousepad so its pity for some that its not big enough. if you dont mind a small mousepad, the sx has superior tracking.

i have always been a huge fan of the func surface 1030 pads.
they have different surface on each side of the pad incase you like it smooth or abit rough.

the last pad i had i used for almost 10 years before i got a new one, solid product.

Anyone have an opinion on the Steelseries Experience I-2 pad? I was thinking about buying this instead of the SX for the G500.

glass mousepads are incredibly smooth and rival the sx's smoothness. im not sure about tracking ability. the avago-9500 is picky as we have seen on cloth mousepads though personally i have had no problems espically neg accel with my xai and qck heavy.
my friend is back from the holidays and can mail the sx out if anyone is intrested.

It's a cloth pad though, but I have use several expensive plastic mats in the past and now prefer cloth pads for control and consistency

I'll have to ask bojinglebells since he has the Icemat (rebranded as I-2) and the SX. Found a great deal on the I-2 and cheaper than the SX by $20, but it comes in pink.

I jacked one of the "Geek Squad" mousepads on PC display area from Best Buy.

Funny part is I picked some up off of the floor (they were scattered all over the place) and asked one of the helps "Hey bro, can I have one of these ?" He and his co-worker laughed @ me and said "those aren't for sale"
So I just walked off with it in hand and nobody told me I couldn't have it LMAO

Biased recommendation.

I don't have "a particular tendency or inclination, esp. one that prevents unprejudiced consideration of a question; prejudice". Perhaps I should have said if you don't have an 'opinion' for those who want to knit pick at my words.

Now, I have used all different types of mouse pads as I have already stated previously. Having tested each and every one in-depth, my opinion is based off of fair testing and facts, not because I tried out one mouse pad and think it is better than others which I have not tried, which many people tend to do.

There are many factual traits about the kai.g3 such as material quality, consistency, reliability, and durability alone that make it better. While some people may prefer a lot of friction, others very little, this mouse pad has a perfect middle that basically provides glide but with easy stopping ability.

My full review of the HIEN KAI.g3 - http://www.esreality.com/?a=post&id=1994230

@ xelyx: I've owned a fUnc 1030 before, wore out after about 6months in the middle, as did the Razer eXactmat (speed side).
- The 9HD may be good but it is too small for my sensitivity in most games.

At last, I found an ultra-cheap SX for 12€. I was pretty interested in the Hien Kai but 1) like I already said, I'm more for hard surfaces 2) I can't find it here in Germany

Wow! You're very lucky to find the Steelseries SX that cheap. I'm still trying to find one cheap, but I could only find one seller here for $30 but he closed his section and kept the SX (nobody was interested in it). The Razer Ironclad is just too expensive and people have already reported problems on it:(

People just either love or hate Razer products here on OCN. Steelseries products generally seem okay for most people here.
