Technology news and commentary by the staff

Just another entry about gaming junk…

without comments

I figured I would use this entry and briefly speak about the different mouse pads that are out on the market for gamers. I promise that my next blog entry will not be technology or computer-related. I am sure that some of you are wondering if gaming mouse pads are worth purchasing. It certainly is fair to wonder whether or not spending up to $50 on a mouse pad is a good investment. Let me explain what I think about mouse pads.

The first thing is that a gaming mouse pad does make a difference. I will admit that casual gamers shouldn’t buy a gaming mouse pad, especially because it won’t make that big of a difference. After you decide that you want to purchase a gaming pad, you have to decide what type of pad you want to buy. You have the option of cloth, metal, plastic, etc. Each have pros and cons, and each cost a different amount. The best cloth pad that I have encountered is the Steel QcK+ from Steelpad. It is cheap, durable and a pretty good overall gaming surface. The best plastic pad that I have used is the RatpadzGS (designed by [H]ardOCP’s Kyle Bennett). It took me over a year of constant use before I began wearing the pad down. It also worked with every mouse that I tested it with. The best metal pad that I have used is the Banshee Pad. The problem with this pad is that you are going to have to shell out a few dollars for it.

If you guys have any questions about the different mouse pads (I have used quite a few of them), just respond to this blog, e-mail or private message me.

Again, this has been enough rambling by me!
