Roccat Taito Gaming Mouse Pad

Packaging and Initial Impressions

Packaging and Initial Impressions
 
The Roccat Taito arrived in a small plastic enclosure as shown below. Nothing particularly fancy, aside the prominent company logo along with a couple of sentences describing the product. The enclosure also included samples of the mat's fabric so the customer can feel what the front and back of it is like.

It held the mouse mat securely in a “roll up” fashion. The enclosure is opened by a tab at the rear , which is then peeled backwards. The mechanism worked but smaller fragments of plastic began to break apart in the process, which meant that the box can't really be used again. Also, even though the mat was placed in the box securely, the way in which it's packed means that the mat is at least initially not entirely flat. In all fairness, with an overall size of 40cm x 32cm, a flat style of packaging has quite an impact on postage costs for Roccat, the distributors, retailers and ultimately the end user. The Taito completely flattened out within the first several minutes of use and so I wouldn't hold this against the product itself.

Roccat describes their mouse mat as one that is optimised for gamers, while maintaining the highest levels of comfort. This is said to be achieved by the heat treated nano pattern of the surface material and a strong rubberised backing, which is said to hold the mat securely.

In terms of the Taito's design, it adopts a more minimalistic approach, consisting of just a black semi gloss finish and the product's title in the bottom right corner. Some may not be too fond of the mat's simple design but just as equally, one could argue that there's less to not like about a design like this. Needless to say however, we care less about it's looks but more about how it performs.
