somewhat sceptical about reviewing a mouse pad. I mean how
much of a difference could a mouse pad really make?
Reluctantly I binned (well, put into storage) my old Darth
Maul mouse pad & decided to find out.
first released the Large Attack Pad in 1999; people saw what a
great difference a truly good mouse pad could make.
Everglide Giganta blue has the following specifications:
with all Optical Mice!
for easy clean-ups
above picture is what youíll get for your money. The
dimensions are the same as that of the Everglide Giganta
black. The pad also comes with 5 no-slip tabs underneath it to
ensure your mouse pad doesnít move once you position it.
These tabs work extremely well & thereís no way
you will accidentally shift this mouse pad.
little indented curve at the bottom is where you place your
hand/wrist whilst holding the mouse & feel perfectly
natural. Nice ergonomic design.
pad itself is very rigid & the surface is great for
tracking the mouse ball across & feels smooth. Another very
important feature of this pad is that you clean it
properly. Something that you canít really do with clothe
based mouse pads. This hard plastic is just great, simply
wash/wipe the surface with a wet cloth to remove any dirt.
gave my mouse (Microsoft Intellimouse Pro) a little clean
before I started using the new pad, which is something I do
every few weeks anyway, using a combination of tissue &
scissors to scrape of the crap (yes thatís the technical
term) that tends to build on the rollers of the mouse.
after changing mouse pad I noticed how incredibly smooth I
could move the cursor around my desktop. The effect of this is
similar to using PS/2 rate to increase your mouse-sampling
is instantaneous & youíll encounter no difficulty
whatsoever navigating through the Start menu or a mass of
folders. I found editing images in MS Paint to be that little
bit easier & when selecting items to be moved around that
extra bit of pinpoint accuracy saved me time.
