SteelPad S&S Gaming Surface

Testing

Testing

To test the pad, I'm going to use my Logitech MX1000 and play a bit of Call of Duty 2 Multiplayer.



During gaming in both CoD2 and CS:S I noticed the overall feel of the mouse was more accurate and smooth, almost fluid like. Now, I don't have any screen shots of me in game as I've been doing terribly in CS:S lately, though I did play a bit better with this mat.

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.

The mat is about 12" wide by 10.5" tall,



would look even better if you also included the measurements in the metric system as the most of us use

btw what is it made off ?

im sitting with a 4d steelpad and its made of plastic and is very sensitive to heat, was enough with a bowl of food to disfigure it due to heat.

Same here, though I have no idea how much it cost. It's from Circus Circus!
