SteelPad QcK heavy Mouse Mat

Introduction and Packaging

Introduction

The SteelSeries is a range of gaming gear aimed at the professional gamer. With an increasing amount of companies aiming their products at this popular field, they have their hands full making their products stand out.

Mouse mats are (to put it simply) essential for gamers. You can have the best mouse in the world, but if it's not sitting on a mousemat that takes full advantage of the mouse, then it will be no good at all.

SteelSeries aim to give you that surface and make sure it is one part of your game where you cannot blame your tools.

Packaging

SteelSeries have packaged the SteelPad QcK heavy fairly simply. With a plastic tube partly covered in a cardboard box, the packaging is attractive but not overbearing.

As you can see the branding is very much on the professional gaming gear. This is certainly reflected on the box with a nice style of package and the specs written on the box. Nothing overly flashy, which is always nice to see.

The parcel I got through from the courier was not exactly what you would call "unscathed", but the packaging held up no problems and there was no damage to the mat at all. This is definitely a good thing for those e-tailers that use less than careful couriers.

The packaging also reveals the gaming teams and people that SteelSeries sponsers and who use their mats. This is quite an impressive list and certainly encourages you to think that you have chosen wisely.

Usually I say something about the "bundle" in with the product, but the SteelPad QcK heavy came with....the mouse mat. So all in all pretty much you buy a mouse mat. I was ever so slightly disappointed that there wasn't some kind of holder for LAN party's and suchlike, but I suppose this would add to the cost.

It looks like it'd be a pita to clean but, it also looks like it'd perform very well. Nice review Matt.

I didn't think it would be ok for me but I am now used to it and would not want my desk without it

It does indeed pick up dust - but it's worth it for the smooth gaming

that is one beast of a mousemat if only it would fit on my extremely small desk (my small mousemat is currently tucked slightly under my saitek eclipse so if i did buy this 1...half of it would be buried under it too!)
