SteelPad QcK heavy Mouse Mat

The Mat - closer Look

The Mat

Let's take a look at the Mat itself.

It's a huge beast of a pad. Shown here is my Logitech G5 (not a small mouse)

Black is always a good colour for a mousemat and I'm happy that it's a plain mat. with a nice looking logo on the left, the mousemat is a very "professional" looking. This means that you don't have to feel like an "uber geek" by having a loud mousemat. This suits me fine as I like the subtle look.

Lets zoom out and see just how big this mat really is:

This gives you an idea of the sheer scale of the mousemat. when I first took it out of the box I thought it looked a little ridiculous. It's literally fills my entire (rather small) desk.

This was actually worth a bit of a laugh at first, but then I started using the mousepad.

The thickness of the mat is in a word: awesome. It is basically like having a wrist-rest for your arm the whole time you are on the PC. I will comment more on this later.

The surface of the mousemat is material and is pretty slick. Having tried a couple of cloth mouse mats and not liking them at all I was pretty hesitant: results later on.

A very smooth surface. The only downsize is that the mat tends to accumulate dust, but not a huge amount more so than a hard surface mat.

Let's take a close look at the base.

Made with a non--slip material, the base is designed so that the mat doesn't sail around your desk whilst gaming. I don't have much to say about this apart from the fact that the base of this mat does its job with 100% efficiency. No slip at all even whilst hardcore gaming.

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!)
