I am not a gamer but I still need a quality mouse mat for a laser mouse. A mat which is comfortable to use, offered very low drag on the mouse and yet gave a responsive surface for fast reactive movement tracking on screen. This mouse mat does all that. It is also very quiet if that makes any sense. There is no scrapping sounds as the mouse glides across it surface. It is quite large so if this size is too big for you, the 'steelseries' is available in smaller sizes. It is super grippy too. It has not moved at all on my glass topped desk and the black satin finished material just looks very stylish against the black glass. The mat has a quality feel and is immaculately finished.
Other reviews on Amazon have said that due to the matt being rolled up in its packaging, ripples have been left in the matt when it is laid flat on the desk. I truly have not expereinced this. I unpacked the matt, unrolled it and then rolled it the opposite way and then unrolled it again to place it on the desk. Perfect. It laid flat first time.
I could not be happier with this purchase and would not feel cheated at all if I had paid twice the price. £6.80 for this supreme matt is a steal.
