SurfaceThe surface is where the real innovation is, the Fibertek surface from Everglide is truly amazing. It performs great not only with old optical mice but is also compatible with all laser mice. I have tested the mat with the following mice:
- Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer 3.0 (IME 3.0),
- Microsoft Habu (With the newest drivers and firmware),
- Razer Copperhead (With the newest drivers and firmware).
As you can see from the picture above, the surface is really fine grained. The general feel of the surface is smooth and soft.
I didn't notice any excessive negative acceleration while using this mat, not even with my old optical mouse which should be more color sensitive than the two laser mice.
SizeThe Fnatic Edition is just as big as any of the Everglide Titan Monster mats which are available in different colors. The pad is an enormous 444x355mm (Width x Length). Besides that it's only 4mm thick which makes it very comfortable to use.
As you can see the Fnatic Edition is substantially larger than the NOIDpad and way larger than the QPAD EC-R.
I like the fact that the mat is so enormous because I play with a rather low-sensitivity and I hate running out of mat. I think that most low-sensitivity gamers will feel right at home on this mat due to its shear size and consistent glide.
