IntroductionI would like XTracPads for supplying the review sample
The following quotes taken from the XTracPads website give you an idea about the company's mentality and philosophy:
Started in March of 2002 by a group of hard-core PC gamers, our mousing surfaces and accessories have won countless awards. We offer an expanding variety of surfaces and optical mouse pad sizes. Not only are our products used in computer gaming, they are equally efficient for many other applications such as digital animation, desktop publishing and more. The medical, military, gaming, art, scientific and aerospace industries all benefit from the high quality, speed and accuracy found in all XTracPads optical mouse pads. XTracPads is headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah.
We thought it was appropriate to have a special page dedicated to everyone that has contributed to the success of our company. Thanks to a higher power for providing inspiration each and every day. To all our customers and loyal fans, XTracPads would not be where we are today without you... "Thank you!" Thank you to our resellers and business partners all over the world. All our friends and affiliates in the review world, thank you for taking your valuable time to give your honest opinions on the products we've sent you for review.
The XTracPads Pro mouse pad comes packaged in some very thin, but appropriate cardboard sleeve. The front lets the user know what the pad looks like and features a hole, so you can get a feel for the surface of the Pro pad before buying it. The back lists all the features in a simple box as well as a some quotes of past reviews.
Besides the mouse pad, there is also an XTracPads sticker inside the package. It is about 2 x 2 inches big.
The XTracPads Pro is a cloth pad with a hexagon theme on the pad itself. There is a black stripe on the right side with the company logo and the mouse pad name on the side. This is the most advantageous placement of such a logo and website address, as anyone sitting next to you will notice it.
The bottom of the Pro consists of some very fine foam. It has a some structure comparable to a tire which keeps the pad secure on any flat surface.
