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.

- 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.
Also worth noting that the texture of the mouse-pad was also incredibly rough to the touch, like sand paper, despite how smoothly the mouse glides across it. This means that certain types of mouse feet could be quickly worn out by the rough texture. Just something to keep in mind.
The mouse pad is thin enough to not feel like it is raising your wrist off the table at all, but thick enough (with the rubber backing) to feel substantial. The rubber backing holds it rock solid in place and there is no skidding around, even on a glass table. The pad size is subjective I know, but this one is in the just right range... not too big, not too small. The tactile response from the pad is amazing, it is smooth without being too smooth, there is just enough "surface friction" to keep it from feeling like glass, but not too much to start dragging on the mouse. I am still using my original, 7 year old, Microsoft Sidewinder gaming mouse and I spent a little time tweaking the dpi settings, weights and mouse feet to match with this pad. After all is said and done I think this is the absolute pinnacle of mouse and mouse pad cohesion. The result improved my response in game and improved my K:D ratio immediately. Forget all other mouse pads, the SteelSeries 4HD should be included with every computer sold today.
