    I got a Razer Copperhead a few years ago, but never used it because my current mouse was good enough, the software didn't work well, and because my mouse pad was low quality, and caused skipping.

    However, my 1650x1080 monitor calls for a higher qaulity mouse, so I decided to use my copperhead. I'm just having trouble getting a good mousepad, because my space limitations are 12 inches wide by 9.5 inches "tall".

    I've been looking at these, but thought I'd ask you guys before I got them:

    Heard good things about this from a few articles.

    (The Icemat second edition [not the one I linked to] is .5 inches too long height wise, so I'm not sure if all the feet would hit the table, or if they would go over the edge of my furniture).

    I would get a Razer surface to compliment the mouse, but they are just too big. Won't fit my area of 12x9.5 inches.

    the small size comes 10.5 in x 8.5 in. they have an online store that you can order from. :)

    the Razer eXactMat was the last surface they did with 2 editions (Speed and Control also) and they say the Speed Edition is for high sensitivity gaming and the Control Edition is for low sensitivity rts gaming or professional editing.

    by the way they say shipping won't start until July 28th but you can pre-order.

    Not to bash or anything, but laser mice are not 'better' than optical.

    My G5 was/is truly inferior to my older optical DiamondBack and my new DeathAdder.

    It is also inferior than the MX518. It is inferior than MS Intellimouses.

    Let alone the mouse on the desk, unless you're sending emails and surfing the internet.

    Anyway : http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000UYCRQG/?tag=tec06d-20

    Everybody is subject to their own opinion, however I do not believe that everybody out there believes that the G5 is inferior to the MX518, I for one prefer the G5.:)

    +1 on laser mice, I've got a Logitech MX Revolution laser mouse. Was bloody expensive at £44 ($88 direct conversion) but is really very good, and I don't bother with a mat either. I can even work it on my leg, lol.

    Laser is technically far superior to Optical, it's either the differences in Sensors or it's Psychosomatic and having a $40 Laser Mouse on a hard surface with no type of pad is a bad idea.
