SteelPad QcK heavy Mouse Mat

I have been extremely impressed with the SteelPad QcK heavy.
The pad is extremely comfortable and easy to use. Gaming at high and low DPI settings is an easy and smooth experience. I don't think it made me any better playing Counter Strike Source, but that may be a lost cause. The pad made my general PC use much more comfortable, meaning that the hours I spend in front of it are that little bit more bearable.
I will also say that the Teflon pads on my mouse do not wear down at all with this pad in comparison with my other, hard pads.
Having said that, this pad will not be for everyone. It is VERY big and would not fit on a very small desk. Portability is also a negative: with no LAN case for the huge (and as the name suggests: heavy) pad. A case or something similar would have been a definite bonus.
Price has not been released as of yet, but SteelPad list Overclock UK and Dabs as they're UK distributers.
I am giving this a Gamers Choice Award - a great product made for gamers.
+ Awesome smooth surface
+ Incredibly Accurate
+ Very comfortable
+ Amazingly big surface area
- Perhaps too large for some desks
- Not as portable as some mousemats
Thanks to SteelSeries for providing the product.
