Still wrinkled after a week
Reviewed in the United States on December 29, 2020
It's been over a week now since this pad arrived, and the top edge of it still is wrinkled like bacon. While it has tamed somewhat in the first few days, it looks like it's permanently wavy at the top which is inexcusable for any mouse mat.
More importantly, the surface doesn't feel uniform directionally. Side-to-side movements feel different than back-and-forth, with the latter feeling slightly more friction. It was enough of a difference where I was subconsciously picking up my mouse while gaming. My years-old Corsair MM300 feels better and laid flat immediately, but the design was so hideously ugly that I was trying to replace it. It's especially annoying because it's not worth my time or effort to return this thing in the middle of a pandemic, so it's basically $30 plus tax wasted.
