    SteelSeries has been manufacturing gaming gear for the gaming enthusiast for half a decade. The SteelPad 5L is the latest incarnation of there SteelSeries gaming surface series and today we take the SteelPad 5L for a test drive. The gaming surface at first glance looks like the typical cloth type mouse pads of back in the day when we all had roller style mouses and input devices. The cushion layer thats between the surface and backing resembles a thin layer of neoprene, so the surface has a stiff but sponge like feel to it. The surface is comfortable and smooth to the touch. Let's have a look.

    Nice review :)

    One more thing regarding durability. I don't have this mousepad, but I have a Steelpad S&S (which works great with my G5). What I really dislike about my mat (and probably yours too, unless Steelpad has changed their manufacturing process) is the rubber sprayed over the bottom. I've had my S&S for about a year now, and the rubber is slowly starting to come off, and the mouse is more vulnerable to sliding all over the place now.

    Well D_o_S i know exactly what you are talking about. The rubber on the bottom seems more sturdy than on the S&S. I dont think it will be a problem like with the S&S but i can't really be sure !
