EVO-G Illuminated Mousepad VS QPAD XFX Collectors Edition

Conclusion

Conclusion

So which mouse mat has impressed us the most?

To tell the truth they are both pretty good mouse mats. But the EVO-G has a few flaws that ruins it for me. The main issue with the EVO-G is the wrist rest. I found it hard to adjust to and it's not exactly the most comfortable rest.  Whereas the QPAD, and it's 4mm height, is rather comfy and nice to use for extended perods of time.

The EVO-G for me has the looks, a little on the tacky side but it certainly can impress. But because of its good looks it has failed to provide the comfort that is needed for long periods of time spent in front of a screen.

The EVO-G may have the looks but the QPAD can see them off. The QPAD is also portable - great for that LAN party!  

Finally both mats suffer from size problems. If you have a small desk please look at the measurements before you buy as they are rather large. On the plus side they allow for more movement while in games.

 

EVO-G Illuminated Mousepad results:

The Good - 

  • Unique design
  • It has lights
  • Carbon fibre
  • The "wow" factor
 The Mediocre
  • Design might not appeal to all
  • An average performing mouse mat
The Bad
  • A little pricey for the performance it gives
  • Not very portable
 
 
 
 
QPAD XFX Collector's Edition:
 
The Good
  • Stylish
  • Very comfy for long periods of time
  • Improves mouse response
 
The Mediocre
  • Smells a bit
  • A little pricey but a good performer
 
The Bad
  • None to report
 
Thanks to EVO-G and QPAD for providing the products to review.

Might give that QPAD a go, the EVO-G is too OTT for me!

Totally forgot about this thread.. thanks for the nice comments guys!

The QPAD is by far the best and if you are looking to get a nice comfy mouse mat it is one to consider.
