A $50 mouse-pad?? :doh:

Regardless of how good it really is, it just can't justify the pricing IMO.

A descent or good mousepad should be priced in between $25-30 at max.

 

Anyway, it's a good review. :)

yeah that was the hardest thing for me, I really wanted to mark it down for being so costly. If you read the conclusion you'll see why I didn't and they deliver what is offered. 

 

I'm using it right now and played some counter-strike go the other day and got first place :) I also spilled soda on it again, like I thought I would.

An editor may wish to recheck the review as the very first sentence is missing a word.

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

what has this world come to...$50 mouse pads? $30 premium mouse pads would more than suffice for anything, even as a pro gamer.

even my super cheap Logitech mouse worked great . if you look at the side with high magnification you can see how neatly it's threaded . now is it better than other mouse pads or ones that are $25 . idk

the generic ones has low thread count that can causing that jumping . what mouse are you using?

I meant this specific one.

$50 is a lot for a pad with no real uniqueness IMO.
