This mouse pad is so XTREME. I bought it and immediately got 50% more headshots in every XTREME COMPETITIVE FPS that I played.

This 'gaming' product market is getting out of control. All joking aside, though, this one is reasonably priced and I like the fact that it's washable and re-adhere's to surfaces. Nice to see at least something with a 'gaming' connotation give some use without costing triple what it should.

Looks nice, may just be purchasing this once my desk comes home (need a new mousemat anyway and I abandoned the idea of attaching one to the desk, I wonder how well it'll hold onto the desk).

Looks nice and the fact that it sounds like it suctions down makes me want to ditch my Rocketfish pad for it.

doesn't even say what kind of material it's made of, since it has an adhesive it's safe to say there is no rubber it would be nice if they included a mouse cord clip like my func gaming surface i'm sure these are inexpensive models to fill the gap between the price points of their more expensive models.

Looks nice. While my Razer Diamondback got replaced with my G9, I still like Razer products. I'll probably pick one of these up.

Nothing new but a pretty good price. I had a Battlepad Pro about 5 years ago that was 250x190x1mm and cost me $15USD back then.

Certainly not as comfortable as a cloth pad but easy as piss to clean if needed.

looks like a mirror surface probably not ideal. way too expensive, try this. what I use. you are supposed to clean your gaming surface you use a tack cloth with a isopropyl/isopropanol cut with water.

gaming surfaces are about tracking and speed.

one more tip to protect your teflon feet and make them even slicker pick up a bottle of tanning lotion it contains silicone emulsion.

Robert Krakoff CEO of Razer now you know who gives the infamous one liners.
Bit: With keyboards constantly getting more complex, incorporating LCD screens and macros for example, it can seem as if keyboards often rely on gimmicks to sell these days. Do you ever get the feeling that simpler is sometimes better?

Robert: That really depends on the game and the individual player. Some games don’t require much more than a good solid WASD key command while other games scream for macros and advanced key programming. One man’s gimmick can be another man’s Tarantula.

I have the Pro Pad, a white ExactMat and it's such an awesome pad. I'd pick a dual sided hard mat over an ultra thin cloth pad any day! The SteelSeries pads are probably just as thin and offer the game gaming performance at a lower cost than the Sphex.
