Product Description

Style: 9HD

Product Description

Developed in parallel with the SteelSeries Xai to ensure that advanced high definition mice fully benefit from this surface, the SteelSeries 9HD is a hard plastic composition consisting of tens of thousands of light reflecting microscopic points, specifically engineered for professional gamers who demand consistent precision, accuracy and stability.

From the Manufacturer

All mousepads from SteelSeries are thoroughly researched, tested and optimized for gaming. By definition, a true gaming product is superior to any other piece of computer hardware and accessory. Gamers constantly make split-second decisions, razor-sharp movements and use their equipment much more extensively than practically any other consumer group in the world. That's why SteelSeries spends so much time testing materials, durability, glide, precision and compatibility. And why there's no compromise on any of the above. And that means SteelSeries surfaces provide unparalleled performance and precision. The bottom line is, if you want to maximize your game, you have to maximize your equipment.

Picking the SteelSeries Mousepad That's Right for You

All SteelSeries surfaces offer something unique. The glide, feel, and comfort differs based on the material used to manufacture the product, but they all offer "gaming grade" precision and accuracy. How you personally feel about touching the material used to create the product, what mouse technology you use, and your playing style will help determine the SteelSeries mousepad that's suitable for you.

SteelSeries 4HD/9HD

SteelSeries 4HD and 9HD, differing only in size, consist of a hard plastic composition specifically engineered for professional gamers who demand extremely consistent precision, accuracy and stability. The finely textured surface consists of tens of thousands of light reflecting microscopic points, optimized to enhance the tracking capabilities of next-generation gaming mice. A rubber layer on the back gives the mousepad a steady and firm grip of your desk at all times, so you never have to worry about missing that headshot due to a wobbly surface.

Thanks to the sophisticated tracking capabilities of the surface, the user is capable of performing exceptionally precise mouse operations, both in terms of minimal movements as well as high velocity "slingshots". This gaming surface was researched and developed in parallel with the SteelSeries Xai Laser Mouse to ensure that advanced high definition mice fully benefit from this surface.

SteelSeries NP+

The SteelSeries NP+ is unlike any other mousepad that SteelSeries offers. Its pressure compressed fibers offer extreme durability, making its surface resistant to water and most stains. The SteelSeries NP+ is targeted for gamers that prefer a medium to rough glide and higher level of mouse to surface friction.

Regardless of their preference, users can effectively operate any optical or laser mouse on the SteelSeries NP+. Its extra large size and non-slip rubber base provides a firm grip and prevents the pad from sliding no matter what surface the SteelSeries NP+ is placed on.

SteelSeries S&S and S&S Solo

This mouse pad offers unprecedented control and accuracy allowing the user to perform minimal and extremely precise movements. The surface is made of specially responsive plastic compound and the back side features small soft rubber elements offering non-slip steadiness. The highly durable surface obtains increasing durability and offers a consistent glide experience that will even improve over time. The SteelSeries S&S comes with a protective sleeve to protect the mouse pad during transportation to and from LAN-events, while the Solo comes without the protective sleeve.

SteelSeries SX

SteelSeries SX offers a truly unique and smooth gliding experience. The surface is amazingly responsive and precise thanks to fiber polished aluminum and anodized oxide coating. The surface is quiet to use thanks to a rubber base which absorbs noise and vibrations and is optimized for both optical and laser mice technologies. During development and testing the professional Counter-Strike players in Team NoA described SteelSeries SX as "the purest form of glide in the world".

SteelSeries QcK Series

The SteelSeries QcK is a dream of a mouse pad for every gamer that prefers cloth surfaces. This mouse pad went through extensive testing by gaming professionals before its release and with their feedback, the SteelSeries QcK was further developed to make it the ultimate cloth pad every gamer desired. With the use of high quality cloth material, an optimized texture which guarantees both smoothness and glide and a specially designed non-slip rubber base this mouse pad blows away the competition and is a great choice not only for the hardcore gamer but also for graphic designers and others who use their mouse for extended periods of time. The SteelSeries QcK is compatible with all types of mice and is ideal for starters because of its great value for the money.

What Critics Are Saying About the SteelSeries Gaming Mouse Pads


"The 9HD is an excellent product that deserves a place on any gamer's desk. Those who haven't used a mouse mat for years may shirk at the cost, but for the rest of us, this should help step up your game." Score: 9/10
--CNet.com (Editor's Choice)

"The SteelPad S&S Mousing Surface is a great choice for gamers and non-gamers alike, it offers excellent tracking, easy gliding and a thin profile that won't stress your wrist after long periods of use."

"This mat performs really good under any given circumstances. Both when it comes to control, precision, and tracking. In other words the surface featured on the SX has a lot of excellent qualities. I think that the combination of a really fine grained surface with above average gliding performance makes it a really good mat for most gamers."

Style Name: 9HD Verified Purchase
I currently use the Razer Goliathus and I decided to purchase the Steel Series 9HD because the Razer had too much friction. Its more of a cloth material rather than a smooth surface. When I started using the SS 9HD, the surface is way too smooth. It feels like I'm gliding over nothing, no friction at all. So its harder to control for good aiming, but moves and turns much faster. I play Counter-Strike Source, so I prefer aim over movement. But the SS 9HD is a good mouse pad overall, just not for me though. It would require you to lower your sensitivity if you choose to use the 9HD. Unless you're already using something like metal pad or something.

I'm an avid gamer and have been gaming for a while. I play both FPS and RTS (BF3, SC2 and LOL just to name a few) I purchased the Steelseries Sensei mouse and on the website, it stated that the HD series mousepads were recommended and " specifically designed for Laser mouse." So I got the 9HD together with the Sensei mouse.

I've been using the Rocketfish gaming mousepad with the Logitech G5 for as long as I can remember and they have served me well.

But the 9HD is a lot better than the Rocketfish imho. The Rocketfish has 2 sides, 1 smooth for speed and one with more texture for control. Before, I would alternate between both sides, but more recently, I've stuck to using the smooth "textureless" side. The strange yet awesome part about the 9HD is that it has the "textures" yet it's super smooth. And yes, I've tested it with the G5 just to make sure it isn't because I'm using a new mouse. Of course, it might be due to the fact that my Rocketfish mouse pad might be getting a bit old, but I personally can't find anything that might cause performance issues on the Rocketfish other than the rubber grips on the corners.
So with the 9HD, I can move across the mousepad easier and with more comfort without any friction.

For $30+, I think it was well worth the investment. I'm loving the Steelseries 9HD.

- Textured for control yet allows for super smooth mouse glide.

- *A bit smaller than what I was hoping for.
*Not enough to demote a star, but it is ever so slightly smaller than the Rocketfish mousepad, which was a bit surprising.

5 stars isn't enough. This mousepad has outlasted 3 mice, an entire computer, and 2 mechanical keyboards. It has traveled at least 5000 miles in my backpack, being crushed, twisted, and generally abused. It survived attacks by materials ranging from coffee and beer to nail polish remover and lit cigarettes. It is still in excellent condition and I use it daily.

Original review:

This "gaming surface" (mouse pad) works extremely well with my Razer Lachesis 1st generation and MadCatz/Cyborg R.A.T. 7 mice. The pad is not as rigid as I was expecting; two of the corners overhang my desk by an inch or two, and the pad flexes in those areas. It seems like eventually it will deform permanently, but I'm not sure.

The surface is smooth yet grippy, very even, seems durable, and cleans easily. The inlaid steelseries logos give it a somewhat classy Louis Vuitton look.

I would give it 5 stars if it came with Teflon skates (apparently they used to include these, now you get a microfiber chamois), were more rigid, and included a SteelSeries case sticker (I love case stickers). The actual surface itself seems perfect, and based on this purchase I am now considering acquiring a SteelSeries Xai mouse.

I haven't used a mouse pad regularly since I switched from a rollerball mouse to an optic, and now a laser mouse. I found them cumbersome and without any added value. On the behest of a gamer friend, and prompted by my recent purchase of a Logitech G700, I decided to pick up a new gaming mouse pad. After a little research I settled on the Steelseries 9HD Large Professional Gaming Mouse Pad.

I have to say that I love this pad! It is HUGE, thin, unobtrusive, and provides just the right amount of glide for my G700. A bonus is that it is waterproof, which is important to me because I almost always have a cold drink at my desk which means sweating from the glass and/or possible spills.

I found 9HD to be well worth the money as a gamer and as someone who appreciates a good quality/price ratio in a product. I can see this mouse pad sustaining a lot of use years down the line. However, if you're just a casual computer user you probably don't need a mouse pad of this quality or at this price point. Steelseries makes a range of mouse pads, and one of the lower end pads would probably suit you much better, or just using your desk surface as I used to do. On the other hand if you're a gamer then I would highly recommend this pad.

Style Name: 9HD
Coming from the rocketfish pad, which is pretty nice, but seeing as how I have the sensei, I wanted to see if there really was a diff with matcheing pad.
The pad definatly is smoother. Mouse glides maybe 20% faster. I was surprised. the bottom of the pad has a textured rubber that grips my desk like white on rice. Theres no slipping like I had with the rocketfish.

A previous reviewer said it is samller than the rocketfish. Maybe i had a smaller RF pad, but this is a little bigger.

it is so much faster, that I had to get used to it, my scores suffered a little at first, but now Im dominating!

Love this pad.
