Fantastic, low friction mouse pad
on February 15, 2011
It's hard to tell from the details of this product what you are going to get, so let me describe it for you:
The surface is a plastic laminate with very light texture to it. A typical plastic mousepad without this light texture actually adds to the friction because you increase the surface area between what your mouse touches and the pad itself. By adding a light texture, you decrease the surface area and thus the friction is reduced.
I was looking for a low friction mouse pad that had no graphics on it. Some optical mice do not track well (i.e. Jumpy Mouse Syndrome) because there are images and repeated patterns on the mousepad itself. This pad tracks very well because of the lack of pictures printed on top. Mine is just a plain blue. Also, it is the most low friction mousepad I have used in over 20 years of computing, and even better than the SteelSeries SX mousepad that sells for $49.99(at the time of this writing). It has less friction than that over-expensive pad! I highly recommend this product for anyone that needs an extremely fast, low friction, high tracking mousepad for a reasonable price.
If you are a gamer or anyone who wants a hard surface that tracks great, has extremely low friction, you need this mouse pad!
Great job Belkin!
