    Razer eXactMat Mouse Pad Review
    Author: Lorenzo Outar
    Date Posted: September 6th, 2004

    Bottom Line: A casual PC user's mouse pad is insignificant; any smooth surface that translates to fairly smooth mouse movement will work; whilst a hardcore gamer regards his mouse pad with the same reverence as his video card and processor. SLCentral reviewed the Razer eXactMat Mouse Pad if you want to zip around your desktop with uncanny speed then is this the mouse pad for you? read on to find out in our official review....

    Usage:

    In testing with Doom3, Unreal Tournament 2004 and Battlefield Vietnam, I was more inclined to use the coarse surface as it suits my style of play. In using the smooth surface I tended to over shoot my opponents every so often, but then again this may be psychological. The smoother surface works great for daily usage allowing you to zip around your desktop with uncanny speed. I also use Teflon Mouse Tape to reduce friction and enhance mouse movement. This was well liked by the pad. In using a mouse without the tape the mouse pad felt a lot more restrictive and more energy was required to move the mouse around. A pad made of aluminum, being so light, should move under the stress of gaming and surfing, but thanks the four large rubber feet the eXactMat stays glued to the desk’s surface. The aluminum also lends for a thin surface reducing stress on your wrist.

    A shot of the rough side. A crude attempt to show the thickness of the pad.
