Top critical review
Not even worth a quid
on 7 January 2015
After using the mouse pad for a couple of months, I've reached the conclusion that I dislike the QcK, and have updated my review:
When first receiving and opening the package, the mouse pad is found rolled up inside of long, thin box. Because of the way it is packed, it can take a while (about a week in my case) for the mouse pad to fully flatten out - which is obviously not ideal for using as a mouse pad.
Once flattened out, the actual cloth works very well as a mouse pad, which my mouse (SS Rival) smoothly glides over with ease - but not for long. Around 2 months or so after using the product, I found that it picks up dust, crumbs and dirt really easily, and can be a huge pain to clean (if it isn't spotless then the mouse doesn't move evenly throughout).
From the period of use with this product, I also found the "non-slippery rubber base" to be a bad design. The rubber picks up any dust on the desk (since the gaps between the non-slip pattern are minuscule), rendering that feature useless. I couldn't get it to stay in one position as simply moving the mouse would slowly shift the pad with it (I ended up blu-tacking it to my desk in the end, shortly before disposing of it). The size of the mouse pad is also in no way suitable for gaming, which it claims to be - especially if you plan on playing FPS games.
In general, I would not recommend this product as it is difficult to maintain, doesn't stay still on any practically any surface, and the size is terrible. If you're looking for a decent mouse pad, I'd recommend buying a 60x30cm one on eBay (I've been using one for 6 months now, its absolutely brilliant and you can sometimes find them for £4) - not trying to advertise, just offering an alternative.
