Nothing more that you can really say about it, other than the mouse moves easily on it and it blends in nicely with the rest of the equipment in a simple and understated way.
Two and a half years later, still going strong. Still looks good. Maybe very very slightly looking frayed at edges but barely noticeable. Good buy!
The rubber is quite thick and comfortable to rest your wrist on while moving the mouse. The matt black cloth front looks snazzy, and my optical mouse works well with it, with a smooth movement of the cursor on the screen as the mouse is moved. The rubber grip is effective and keeps the mat stationary.
Cheap, smart looking and effective at its job. Excellent.
I expected the fabric to start coming away from the backing at the lower edge, where my wrist rests and rubs on it, but so far (after 6 weeks of constant daily use), I can see no signs of wear whatsoever. My AmazonBasics 3-Button USB Wired Mouse Black (also AmazonBasics) glides effortlessly over the surface and I am very pleased with this small but useful purchase. I noticed how good this pad is when I washed it and briefly reverted to my old one during drying time. Huge difference!
UPDATE: After almost a year and a half of daily use, this pad is still in one piece, the fabric covering shows no sign of detaching and the bottom edge (where my wrist makes contact) is a bit shiny and slightly worn. Excellent durability in my experience.
The mat has three layers rather than the usual two; the top layer is shiny cloth, then there is a foam layer, and at the bottom is a thin rubber layer. The bottom layer is not present on most mats in this price range, and it is this that gives the mat a slightly better than average look and feel (as well as giving good grip).
The mat is a little thinner than usual, coming in at 3mm, and works ok with both optical and tracker-ball mice. It also looks quite smart, especially with an all-black or all-white mouse.
As the mat has a cloth covering, it doesn't have the slick feel of a gaming mouse mat (which tend to have low friction plastic coverings rather than cloth), but I don't suppose this mat is aimed at serious gamers in any case.
One issue I don't know yet is how well the mat will last. The biggest issue with cloth covered mats is how quickly the cloth starts peeling off. I will update this review if I find any surprises on this front.
For the record, I use my computer for web design (Adobe Creative Suite), 3D authoring (SoftImage) and photography (Adobe Lightroom) as well as general computing (word processing, browsing, email) and a fair bit of more cerebral gaming (tending more towards strategy/simulations rather than first person shooters).
Anyway, I am a fan of cloth mouse pads (I had a Razor one in New Zealand) and I can say that while this isn't as good, It still does the job. The mat is a nice weight and the bottom surface is surprisingly hard to move while using the mouse. I am primarilly a 'wrist' user in that I use high resolution (dpi) settings to get the mouse to move further with little actual movement, and this probably keeps the mat in the same place as I don't move my hand.
The cloth surface provides a nice smooth surface and my mouse glides over it well. It is also kind on any fingers you have trailing off the mouse along the pad.
The only caveat I would make with this mat is it's ability when paired with a high resolution laser mouse. I haven't such a mouse to test this with, but I would suspect that there would be a little cursor 'jumping' as the laser tracks over the cloth weave.
Would I pay £5 for it? I have to admit I would have been much more reserved had I not been given the mousepad as part of a promotion, but I still would consider is a worthwhile buy.
For some time now I have been using the Apple Magic Mouse together with a relatively expensive pad with a gel wrist support. For many operations, I began to find this combination frustrating, slow and unsatisfactory and decided to try out the inexpensive AmazonBasics pad. It is a simple, flexible rectangle, measuring approximately 8 x 9 inches. It is black in colour and has an excellent gripping back surface. I have found the pad to be ideal. A big improvement on my previous set-up, it allows my Mouse to glide effortlessly over its upper surface, improving the smoothness and the speed of my browsing. Additional bonuses are its simple, pleasing appearance and the fact that it colour co-ordinates with my computer equipment.
My more expensive Mat has now been mothballed and I highly recommend my new AmazonBasics one.
