XTracPads Ripper XL v2 Mouse Mat
Published: 12th August 2007 | Source: XTrac Pads | Price: |Conclusion
So how do we sum upXTrac Pads Ripper XL mouse mate? Well it's certainly large enough for those who crave extra real-estate and it certainly provides a fast surface to game on. For such a cheap mouse mat it's a no-brainer decision.
To be honest there's not a lot of negatives about the Ripper XL. Admittedly there is the issue that I alluded to earlier in the review with regard to premature fraying/lifting on the end of the mat itself. Plus the fact that the the Razer Mantis feels like it's going to last longer. But for a mere US$13.95 from Sidewinder you really cant go wrong, especially when you're almost paying twice that amount for a mouse mat like my Razer Mantis.
Budget conscious gamers will do well to look at the Ripper XL.
