As a mouse pad cannot really be tested to offer quantitive results, unless you're interested in the mass of it after being fully immersed in water or the temperature at which it completely disintegrates, the idea is that the Roccat Taito will be tested over a number of days of typical use with the tried and tested Roccat Kone mouse and based on our findings, we'll evaluate it in terms of comfort, grip and durability.
General purpose tests consisted of web browsing, media playback and word processing. For tasks like these, we were looking out for noise and general comfort. The Taito ticked all of these boxes with the noise levels of mouse drag kept to a minimum and at no point did the mat feel uncomfortable to use. The high grip backing held the Taito in place without even a twitch.
This is where the Taito should come into it's own. The tests consisted of a number of games of the original Counterstrike. Throughout the duration of testing, the mat allowed the Roccat Kone mouse to perform flawlessly. The size of the surface allowed for sharp character movements without having to lift the mouse from the pad and it's also noteworthy that all of the observations found from general usage tests held true for the gaming tests in that the noise of mouse drag was minimal, it remained comfortable even after longer than recommended durations of computer usage and the backing held it in place like the foundations of a skyscraper.
