Mouse Pads or mats are often a forgotten component when it comes to gaming PC’s. Most manufacturers don’t include them with pre-built computers and when building your own it’s certainly not the first thing to spring to mind. However, with modern day mice becoming more and more advanced, a high performance mouse pad is becoming ever more critical to getting that next killing spree on your favourite FPS.
For those of you now fretting at the thought of missing out on a bit of ‘pwnage’, OCZ has come to the rescue with their Behemoth Mouse Pad aimed directly at gamers. So let’s see what OCZ have to say about it:
With no need to reposition your mouse, the extra-large surface provided by the Behemoth provides the ultimate playing field for PC gaming or CAD applications. The exclusive “TriggerGrip” material is designed to be sensitive to even the smallest movements to optimize mouse accuracy and movement. The combination of the ultra-sensitive fiber and vast size allows for maximum mobility with the latest laser mice on the market and the washable, non-slip rubber base won’t budge even during intense gameplay or meticulous media editing.
OCZ has a fairly short specification listed on their website, with far less information compared to the likes of Razer; here is what they have listed:
* 380 x 260mm (4mm high) Packaging
* Ultra-Sensitive "TriggerGrip" Surface
* Ideal for high-performance laser mice
The Behemoth comes in a thin cuboid shaped box, which is made up of fairly thick card and a light gloss finish. It also has a little tab at the top for attaching to product rails in retail stores and like.
The front and back of the box are outfitted in pretty much the same design, only differing slightly in the background graphics used. The OCZ logo is emblazoned across the middle which means that you’d definitely struggle to miss it if you walked past it in a retail store.
The left side of the packaging is the most interesting. Here it has a bit of an introduction to the product, as well as a small image of the mouse mat itself. It also has the dimensions listed below the introduction/description. The right side features a bar code where the product is made - Taiwan.
Whilst the packaging is reasonable, it’s nothing special and it would have been nice to have seen a little more work gone into this.
