Value/Entry Level Gaming Mousepad with a Catch
on February 8, 2012
I recently bought a Razer Imperator 2012 gaming mouse, therefore I wanted a higher quality mousepad to pair with it. I was thinking about getting the Razer Scarab mousepad, however, I did not want to spend the $30 (doesn't make me feel right spending $30 on a mousepad). After reviewing various "popular" mouse pads for my new mouse, I decided on the Razer Goliathus Omega S - Control (Fragged). I gave it 3 stars, which stands for "it's ok" and it is OK. The mousepad is definitely fancier than a basic cloth mousepad (in functionality/design), the price is right, and the size is perfect for me (the Omega S is the same size as a typical cloth mousepad). I do think that the mousepad will do the job I bought it for. However, there is one issue I have with the pad. The feet of my mouse sometimes catch the highly textured surface of the pad. I am just a casual gamer so it's not that big of deal to me, but I can imagine it might be for some. Also, with the mouse feet catching here and there, I have a feeling it may prematurely wear out the surface of the mousepad. When used with a different mouse, the problem may or may not arise. If I did not have this issue, I would have given the mousepad 4 stars for being a good value entry level gaming mousepad.
