A Closer Look
The end of the packaging has a round clear sticker, which helps to prevent tampering with the product prior to purchase. Once you have removed this and pulled back the flaps you are greeted with the mouse pad itself.
The mouse pad is rolled up inside, although not very tightly. OCZ could have easily made the packing more compact by rolling the pad up further, although this could have had an effect on the product itself, so it’s good to see OCZ put quality above shipping costs.
OCZ has chosen to go for a simple graphic rather than leaving it plain. The graphic isn’t particularly thrilling, nor do we feel that it would be easy to dislike, so OCZ have struck a good balance here.
A closeup of the logo shows the woven material top of the mouse pad. This gives it a nice texture to the touch and is also very smooth. This may not seem as advanced as some of the coatings used on gaming pads, but we found it very comfortable and responsive.
