It's safe to say that the gaming market is saturated with mouse pads. There are many different types, even RGB-backlit ones, yet Logitech's G240 stands out of the crowd rather well. It's a medium-sized, ultra-thin cloth mouse pad with a rather unique surface type, rubber backing, and non-stitched edges.

Does Logitech actually make them, or they sourced like HyperX? Cause that really looks very similar.

Those edges are big meh. I dont mind logo, even bumpy one (personal thing, I just never reach it, or flip it so it doesnt matter). But those edges.

I have the hard version.

Do like it, but HATE the white bright logo in the corner of my eye.

So i actually cut the mousepad smaller, which is still big enough for me.

Shame they no longer sell the old version with blue logo.

Microfiber, black cloth, rubber-backed, edgeless mousemats are available worldwide for under $5.

Logitech have taken one of those, added a garish white logo that ruins it, and quadrupled the price.

FWIW, I once bought a 54" width roll of this stuff for around $80 and made around 500 absolutely HUGE mouse mats for architects and engineers at work. As far as I could tell it was the exact same stuff as my Coolermaster, Sharkoon, and Steelseries mats at home, right down to the imprinted pattern on the rubber backing. This stuff is genuinely worth around $0.30 per square foot.

Yeah I love my G440 too but if the white get's annoying for you rather than cut it off just grab a blue sharpie and colour it in

Thanks for the great review.
I am pretty sure I will not buy mousepad from Logitech.

While this is true, I found that most of them are 3-5mm thick. Few are 2mm, and I couldn't find a single one which is 1mm, so I had to settle for a 1.5mm 210x250mm pad, which is kind of small for me. So, for someone who doesn't like thick mousepads this doesn't seem too bad.
As a sidenote, if someone knows of more 1mm mousepads or even a material like that available in bulk, I'd be very interested in hearing about that.

All mouse pads without stitched edges look bad after 6-8-10 months in my case and I fix them with Loctite super glue.
Steelseries is mouse pad best for clean if we talk about cloth mouse pads.
When mine QCK fall apart I will order Steelseries Edge.

I used Aliexpress, took around 5 weeks to arrive because the roll was something like 18kg so it was shipped by sea.
Mine was sold as 1.8mm but that might just be the thickness of the rubber backing; With the cloth on top and eyeballing it right now using a worn-out desk ruler, it's closer to 2.5mm total
