SteelPad QcK heavy Mouse Mat

Conclusion

Conclusion

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.

If you want a large surface area for gaming, graphical working or even just general use, and need something comfortable and precise - you should not look further than the SteelPad QcK heavy.

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.

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!)
