SteelPad S&S Gaming Surface

To test the pad, I'm going to use my Logitech MX1000 and play a bit of Call of Duty 2 Multiplayer.
In game, arm/hand motions felt in sync with my mouse motions, and the overall gaming experience was enhanced. The way the mouse slides around on the mat is awesome. The overall feel of the mat is just amazing. The tracking power of your mouse is really shown with this mat, as the solid black textured surface makes it really easy for an optical or laser mouse to track on.
The durability of the mat seems high too, bending it or striking it with a hard blunt object (like the butt of a screwdriver) doesn't leave any marks or indents. I expect this thing to last years. It's a solid, non-porous mat so spilling a drink or food on it will be easy to clean up, especially those sticky sugary caffeine-loaded drinks us gamers drink in the early morning hours.
