SurfaceThe pad was tested with laser and optical mice. While some may still use an old fashion mouse ball, it will certainly not be in a gaming environment where mice and mouse pads have become an important asset. The following mice were used to test the Nuke-Z N-2000 mouse pad:
- Logitech MX Revolution,
- Sharkoon Rush Laser Mouse
- Logitech MX518
The Nuke-Z has a very smooth surface and uses a combination of plastic cloth and foam to create a mouse pad.
The German Nuke-Z website includes a diagram (translated by TPU Staff member):
This does seem to be a very logical combination of cloth and plastic, which should increase the durability of the Nuke-Z N-2000. Other manufacturers of gaming mouse pads may use a similar technology to achieve higher durability.
The N-2000 is very traditional in size. It is just as large as most office mouse pads out there. It is a lot smaller than the Nuke-Z N-2000 we reviewed here. The Nuke-Z N-2000 is definitely geared toward the high sensitivity gamer. Mid and low sensitivity players will not have the space needed to move their mouse and play games effectively.
The Nuke-Z N-2000 is rather thick - a whooping 3.9 mm, making it much thicker than the Sharkoon 1337 Gaming Mat. This does make a difference in comfort as the mouse is noticeably higher than on a thin pad. Some may like this kind of setup, while other will find it rather uncomfortable. Other modern cloth pads tend to be thinner than this.
