SteelSeries 4HD is a hard plastic composition specifically engineered for professional gamers who demand 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. 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 and Kinzu Optical mice.

The mouse pad is slightly larger than a standard notebook which is a great size for a wide range of motion. I actually use it in a north-south configuration more than the standard east-west for more depth. Its thin enough to be easy on the wrist for extended periods (I tend to use a claw and fingertip grip on my mouse) and is about the same thickness as a nickel.
The rubber backing is superb at keeping the pad in place, and it has never moved at all once placed. Its very grippy, and I can't slide it at all even with some force.
The surface possesses a finely-grained texture that allows superb traction with smooth and quick gliding and acceleration. I've never had a problem with tracking or control on this pad, and the hard surface is great for laser mice, of course.
Its also easy to keep clean, although it doesn't really seem to attract dirt/dust/fur like some other pads on the market.
The construction has been solid. I've had absolutely no issues with any of the layers peeling up along the edges, warping, etc. It still looks as new as the day I bought it.
The look is professional and understated which I like more than the gimmicky, "extreme" gaming graphics.
At the time I purchased this, it was $26. While some may consider that pricey, I would say its been worthwhile. The product has performed great consistently, and I'd gotten annoyed with having to replace other mousepads yearly (cloth, plastic, and aluminum types.)
I've never bought a SteelSeries product before, but I'd read/heard good things about them. Based on this product, I would definitely buy another SteelSeries product. I definitely feel confident recommending this product to anyone that uses the computer heavily on a daily basis even if they're not a gamer. I'm considering buying another to have as a spare.
- this mousepad provides the smooth glide, without being TOO smooth for me
- very thin so it feels good to rest wrist/forearm on table
- it does last awhile (at least a year+ for me but of course depends on your gaming/usage) With the 9HD, I can rotate the surface around to make full use of it.
- minimal maintenance and easy to wipe clean
My most recent trial with another mousepad is with the Corsair Gaming MM400 which at first seems great but ended up being a bit "too smooth" for mouse glide and also irritates my wrist more than this. (you can see my MM400 review under my list of review)
Mouse pads are one of those things that are often overlooked and more of an afterthought when putting together an office/work area. Granted that nowadays optical and laser mice are standard, mouse pads aren't even necessary. However, I still like mouse pads and recommend them because they'll preserve your desk's surface, especially if it's painted wood.
I've always liked thin, plastic/nylon mouse pads. I don't think mouse pads should be intrusive - you shouldn't even notice them; they're kind of just there and you'll only notice if it's absent. The 9HD is a good size for most people. I use my computer mostly for software development, browsing the web, occasional photo/image work, and some gaming. I probably use the most surface area when gaming, and it is still sufficient. I prefer these to cloth mouse pads because they're easier to clean. You have probably noticed that over time, mouse pads get dirty and collect these black, grimy spots. These are combination of dust, oils, and sweat from the hand. You either have to wash cloth mouse pads or scrub them to get the gunk off. With these plastic ones, I just take a credit card and scrape it off...takes only a few seconds. I also like that most plastic pads are textured; there's a slight bumpy feeling to them. This gives the mouse a bit more traction and it feels better, especially when gaming.
The only downside to the 9HD is that it is a bit pricey. $25 for a mouse pad is a lot of money (compared to $5-10 for a cloth one of similar size). However, I would say that if you keep it clean and don't abuse it, this will probably be the last mouse pad you'll have to buy. I can't think of ways to improve this. It's the perfect size, has a nice texture, and has a minimal look and feel to it (like most SteelSeries products). This is definitely a recommended buy for gamers and people who spend a lot of time in front of the computer.
Purchased the SteelSeries 4HD to replace my aging Ratpadz XT solid pad. I wanted something that was a little more square in shape since the Ratpadz XT was heavily rounded/contoured for the wrist. I'm an avid gamer who clocks between 7-14 hours a week on my PC, at least half of which is RTS/FPS gaming. Paired it with a Logitech G602, a match that's only second to peanut butter and jelly.
It's been about 4 years now and this mouse pad looks as good as the day I bought it. In fact, I was so thrilled with the performance and durability of this mouse pad, that I purchased a second for my wife's gaming PC while writing this review. I can finally throw away the Sentey Kairos Pro pad from her setup. Durability matters; compared to a Sentey Kairos Pro pad that my wife had, which has shown wear after a mere 6 months, the 4HD doesn't seem to age.
