Awesome pad!!! FOR THOSE HAVING TROUBLE WITH WRINKLES READ HERE!!!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This mouse pad is awesome.. Great feel, perfect size, and a steal at [...] bucks. There really is not much else to say about it is there?
Now for those of you giving bad reviews because it comes rolled up and you can't get it to flatten out, READ ON.
I read nearly all the reviews here on Amazon. This was the mouse pad that I needed, but unfortunately was almost turned away because of negative reviews stating that you could not get it to completely flatten. Despite this, I still went ahead and purchased the item (obviously). What the heck.
Tried to book trick which worked a little, still not flat though.
HERE IS WHAT ALL YOU COMPLAINERS (and new purchasers) NEED TO DO!
1. Put the mouse pad in your dryer (you know that thing made for drying clothes and getting the wrinkles out) on LOW heat. Make sure you have some other clothes or towels or something in there with it so it gets shuffled around nicely. Don't leave it in too long, just enough to warm it up and toss it around for a bit.
2. Take it out and play with it a bit; stretch it out, pull on it, roll it up, firmly slide your hand across the pad to stretch the wrinkles, etc.
3. Last step is putting something heavy on it. There you go! If this STILL does not work, repeat the steps. Had mine about 80% flat after the dryer, then the rest came with about 2 days of use.
Easy as that folks!
Well, that's all I've got to say about the SteelSeries QcK Mouse Pad (Black).

would ironing it work?

i would NOT try ironing, unless you use really low heat, and try it on a corner first. A clothes dryer on low heat would be more gentle.

That's perfect, most people don't usually think of that.

yeah do not iron it, i have yet to try but just sounds like a bad idea in general, i have always gotten rolled mouse pads online, i always just rolled it back the other way then put something heavy on it for a day and they flatten out, the dryer thing, i cannot beleave i didn't think of that, thx for the info!

Dude, putting this in the dryer is a terrible and irresponsible idea unless you don't mind getting your clothes ruined with the smell of nasty synthetic rubber. Do you not mind the nasty smell of this mousepad at all? I'm surprised many people do not complain about this aspect of the QcK.

I think you are missing the point, M. Weng. Notice I recommend putting it in on low for a short amount of time. Just enough to warm it up. You make it sound like I suggest extra high heat for 45 minutes! Just use some common sense, don't burn the thing, and it AND your clothes should be fine. I also did not notice any nasty smell. If that is the case, though, put in a few dryer sheets to freshen it up! Thank you for your input!

I see you're still responding to this review so hopefully I can get some feedback. I'll greatly appreciate it.
How "awesome" is this mousepad? I've noticed almost every gamer on here claims their mousepad is "awesome, but found that far from the truth. Some are only good for low dpi settings, others for high, some for ridiculous small mice, and very few all around perfect. The rest you can throw in the junk cateogry. And almost every manufacturer is going to say theirs will make your wildest dreams come true because that's how they sell the hype.
I'm not expecting perfection for a somewhat cheap mousepad, but at least want better than your Wal-mart ones.
Also hanging these cloth mousepads in the sun a bit will help unroll it as well. Plus it gets rid of any "glue" smell.
