I love this gel mouse mat. I have one at work which I use daily. My friend was having trouble with her wrist and fingers when she was using the computer, so I bought this as a present for her. She loves it and it has made a lot of difference to her wrist.Well worth the money and so comfortable to use. Also looks good. It was a lighter colour that the picture advertised. I would recommend this item to anyone.

This is my second identical mousepad, so I'm pretty satisfied with them. But a little bit longer mousepad surface would be nice, I sometimes hit the (slightly raised) upper edge with mouse. I suppose it depends on how you hold the mouse...

This is an acceptable product, the surface works well with an optical mouse and the wrist pad (the reason for purchase) is comfortable. The downer is that these mouse-mats do curl as others state and it curls from new but not too much to start with. The base is very sticky and keeps the mat firmly in place which is good but I sense I'll have to glue the mat to a board in order to stop it curling so the anti slip won't help me any longer.

Okay, but not great.

I bought this for work as I was getting pain in my arms from being on the computer for around 8hrs a day and I haven't had the pain since!

So I definitely recommend this item, along with it's matching keyboard wrist pad.

I work eight hours a day as a solicitor, sat at a desk and spending a lot of time composing documents on my PC. For donkeys years I've simply used a completely flat mouse pad, but in recent months, I've started to experience a nagging wrist pain, exacerbated by long periods working on the PC. My doctor prescribed Naproxen painkillers, which do eradicate the pain, but I didn't want to spend a long time on powerful meds. The doctor also suggested that I have a think about the ergonomics of my work station, and try using a mouse pad with a raised wrist support. I took his advice, and bought one of these pads.
I chose the dark blue, which I would call Volkswagen Golf R blue, which is attractive without being too flashy for a lawyer's office. This pad is also available in several other colours. It measures approximately 9 inches (8 cms) top to bottom and about 8 inches (19.5 cms) wide. The base of the pad and the gel filled wrist support are made of a soft and flexible rubber. The support itself is between 0.6 and 0.7 inches high. The surface is made of a firmer, polyurethane material. The rubberised base is grippy so it won't slide about on a desk.
I tried working with this pad for a couple of days but then gave it to my girlfriend, who works as an accountant. She too spends all day at work sat at her desk, working on her PC with a mouse, and this has been causing her wrist pain. I couldn't use this particular pad because I found it too small for me. If I put my wrist in a comfortable position on the gel support, and held a wireless mouse in a natural feeling position, my fingers and the mouse would overhang the edge of the pad by an inch or more. In other words, this pad is too small for me, a 5 feet, 11 inch tall male, to use comfortably. However, my girlfriend is delighted with this product. She's been using it daily for the last couple of months and tells me that her wrist discomfort has eased considerably.
In short, this mouse pad is attractively designed and functional, fine for kids, teenagers and women, but too small I suspect for a lot of men to use without holding the mouse awkwardly and/or placing their wrist in a less than ideal position. My girlfriend tells me that the pad is stain resistant and easy to wipe clean, and that there's been no deterioration in the surface quality as yet.
This mouse mat is currently on sale at PC World/Currys for £19.99, and so you might want to do a price check against Amazon sellers.
Thank you for taking the time to read this review.

Being a graphic designer, I'm used to using a mouse for a ridiculous number of hours per week, months after month year after year, but after several years, the RSI in my mouse hand got so bad that it was excruciating, I spent a great deal of time researching alternative mouses first so that my hand wouldn't have to pivot at the wrist unnaturally high (Yes - I've used the same wireless laser mouse for years as it's so damn good) but acknowledge that the mouse and my chosen line of work are doing my RSI no good. I looked at Apple Magic Mouse (£60) and Logitech T400 (£20) and Microsoft Arc Mouse (£45), among others - all of which offer a better ergonomic fit so that your hand is much flatter and the angle at which the wrist pivots is almost parallel to the desk (has to be good) however read an awful of of reviews suggesting the level of accuracy and response was not as high as it needs to be if you have a job like, Graphic Design, for example. High level of response and accuracy with zero lag are critical. So £60 is a lot of money for a mouse right, a rip-off in my opinion.

I considered gel mouse pads/supports as an alternative to spending a lot of money on a mouse, and therefore taking a chance on it being accurate and responsive enough at great cost. The gel mouse mat is a cheap way to tackle the RSI problem. This will sound like complete bu****it but from day one, my RSI has been practically non-existent. The gel pad raises the wrist and hand, allowing the hand to use the mouse at practically a horizontal level - eliminating the need to bend my wrist unnaturally for hours on end. I was very skeptical about buying this at first but as it was cheap (£6.00 less expensive than the high street retailers) I considered it worth writing off if unsuccessful. I since bought another so I have one for the office and one for home. Some reviews suggest the actual mouse surface is poor quality and peels off, but after 3 months, it's still like new and I can tell you I'm fussy as hell but have found this to be incredibly good.

5 stars for price, quality and fit for the purpose for which it was designed. Don't delay - buy one (or two) today.

This Fellowes Crystals Gel Mouse Pad. Wrist support is brilliant. I suffer from Arthritis
in one of my fingers. This finger is bent and not as it should be. This pad has helped my arthritis finger, and it is straightening up my finger slightly.
So brilliant, as great product!

I just wanted to say how brilliant this mouse pad is. I had such an aching wrist and lower arm it made me feel miserable whilst i was working on my computer at work. Since using this mouse pad within the last 2 months i can feel a complete difference and my wrist and arm no longer give me any trouble. Highly recommended.

Not made of one piece as illustration might suggest but pad appears well bonded to gel base. Wrist support seems a little thin compared to mat it has replaced (taken to place of work and no longer available from where I bought it!) but quite comfortable in use. Good non slip base.

When first purchased, this was about the best mat ever used. Over time, the surface will get grubby and discolour even though the only thing ever used on it is the mouse which rarely leaves its surface, and it gets worse with time. It can be cleaned with an almost dry cloth but it will get dirty again quite quickly. The bottom of the mouse is also regularly cleaned so it is difficult to know why the surface dirties quite so quickly.

After several months, I noticed that there are several growing ripples in the surface where the cloth working surface is separating from the base substrate. The mat is now barely usable as the mouse reacts to these surface imperfections and the cursor will assume an illogical location as it passes over them.

I have been using it for about 18 months to about 2 years and I would estimate its useful working life to about 9-12 months if used for a few hours a day every day. Not especially cheap if it needs frequent replacement.
