Most of the time, sequels to great movies suck. Normally, sequels to great books suck. Sometimes, sequels to great games suck. But what doesn’t ever suck are sequels to Razer products. They just keep getting better. Razer, the world’s leading high-end precision gaming brand, wants you to know that your gaming doesn’t have to suck anymore thanks to the release of the Razer Scarab; the next generation hard gaming mouse mat. Featuring a Razer Fractal 2.0 surface coated in light grey, the long-awaited sequel to the Razer Destructor takes superior tracking to an explosive new level.

“With this sequel, we focused on enhancing the Fractal surface coating so that gamers will improve their game even further. It’s all you need to win in life,” said Robert “RazerGuy” Krakoff, president of Razer USA, “And in PC games of course. The Razer Scarab is for gamers who prefer hard surfaces, high performance areas, effortless swipes and absolute tracking.”



Alexey “Cypher” Yanusheuski of Team Serious Gaming, world champion in Quake Live said of the Scarab, “A mat like this makes keeping up with the high intensity of Quake easy. I look forward to further improving my rocket jump technique and upping my frag count.”

Olga “Pachella” Pak, Counter-strike 1.6 world champion with Team Mousesports said, “Razer paid special attention to the needs of FPS gamers when developing this; improving accuracy and now the Scarab is an indispensable accessory to complement my high-dpi gaming mouse.”

About the Razer Scarab
What makes the Scarab the awesome mat it is comes down to Razer’s Fractal 2.0 surface coating. It establishes a highly responsive and uniform tracking system perfect for optical and laser mice sensors. It’s been finely-tuned to balance between speed and control to help acquire targets more accurately.

Razer even included a lightweight carrying case that not only protects the Scarab, but is a sweet folio to store documents for your job as a tax accountant by day, l33t gamer by night. It even looks great, guaranteed to turn heads at the next LAN party you destroy.

So go on, get a Razer Scarab and make your high-dpi gaming mouse (it better also be a Razer) happy.

I get no scratchy sound though... maybe your teflon mouse base is worn down?

Hyperglides? I sold SteelPad SX cause noise.. and it was damn cool and not that effective as I wished. Now I have PureTrak and its quite ok.. though, would be nice to have better performing mouse pad. But it would be waste for G9x.. its just something one should consider with Phillips sensors, that actually can use better mats..

I have a Razer DESTRUCTOR mouse pad and it's awesome, but I really don't see any difference between it and this one. It seems to me that Razer simply puts out a mouse pad every year or so, and then tells us it's the best thing ever (like they say about all their products:shadedshu:rolleyes::wtf:), yet the only difference seems to be a different color.

ratpad mouse pads FTW. Cheap and pretty much indestructible :)
But the texture on the top of them wears smooth quickly, I went that route buying a new one about every 6-8 months till after my 5th one, I said no more and bought a Razer DESTRUCTOR, and here I am a year and a half later, and it other than being a little dirty is just like the day I bought it.
