Surprised as could be..... it was bigger than anticipated
on May 30, 2013
Well, I had looked at another mouse pad that was 10" x 12" and I had that dimension in my head--- then I ordered this one as I simply liked the logo and I completely overlooked the size and had it in my head it was 10" x 12"... at 15" x 17" it is BIG. I had a standard mouse pad before and it had a dead spot in it with my optical mouse--- don't know why, but it did so I needed a new mouse pad. I also prefer a trackball, but for work I for some reason I prefer my Microsoft wireless mouse over anything else. Huh. With that and besides the dead spot, I wanted one that was larger and that I would not continually fall off the edges.... now the last laugh is on me.... at 15" x 17" and the fact it takes up a lot of real estate on my desk.... I could not be happier.
Needless to say I never get near the edge and fall off, there are no dead spots, and it looks cool. The one problem that was mentioned was that it curls due to being shipped rolled up--- my resolution was to order it during a 95-degree heat spell and have it bake in a UPS truck for hours on end... with that mine unrolled and laid flat the minute I put it on my desk. I have read about putting it in the dryer on low heat for a couple of minutes to warm it up--- basically that is what happened to mine.
So besides the small surprise of it being big--- it feels good and works very well. It will be very handy as one design program that I utilize often is very wide and this will resolve my above mentioned falling off of the edge.
