:withstupid: Attaching a wrist support isn't anything new and certainly doesn't warrant such a high price, nor does some gimmicky desk grip (sorry, but I never had any mousepad, cheap or expensive, move on me).

I kind of like the looks of it myself, I like the idea of it gripping to the desk, I also put my mouse pretty far up my desk to the point where everything from my elbow down is on the desk so the extra comfort would be handy for me. I would probably get it if it were $20 or $25, but $55 is simply too much.

I can see the idea behind it, the price does bother me, but from what I could see I would pay it.

I have had a lot of issues with mouse pads sliding on my desks at home so I have to watch what I buy.
