High quality & supportive,
This review is from: 3M(TM) Precise(TM) Mouse Mat with Leatherette Gel Wrist Rest - Silver - 22.1cm x 23.4cm x 1.9cm (Office Product)
Having started three months of all-day PC use at home I found using scraps of paper or books as a mouse pad no longer did the job. They were fine for the odd short session at the pc but my wrist was feeling oddly unsupported after a few hours. This mouse pad & combined support does the job of providing support to my wrist perfectly.
From a sustainability view I think its better to buy higher quality items and have them last longer. This 3M product seems to meet those requirements nicely. Even the (minimal) retail packaging was all cardboard and no plastic (well done 3M). The item itself is just as described. I think the leatherette cover on the wrist support is a better choice than fabric as that tends to get shiny and worn. Size is good, top of mouse sits nicely 1cm-2cm back from top edge even though I have large hands. Does not feel like mouse will go off the edge at any time which was my main concern with this smaller-type pad. Bottom of product has a Post-it style sticky finish (which comes with a plastic peel off non-recyclable cover, -1) so it's kinda glued to the desktop. No movement on my glass desktop but easily peels off with no residue if needed. Overall looks as if it will last a long time.
In summary quite happy with the product. 3M has a good reputation for quality and this mouse mat does not disappoint. Well worth the extra few pounds.
