SteelSeries 4HD is a hard plastic composition specifically engineered for professional gamers who demand consistent precision, accuracy and stability. The finely textured surface consists of tens of thousands of light reflecting microscopic points, optimized to enhance the tracking capabilities of next-generation gaming mice. Thanks to the sophisticated tracking capabilities of the surface, the user is capable of performing exceptionally precise mouse operations, both in terms of minimal movements as well as high velocity "slingshots". This gaming surface was researched and developed in parallel with the SteelSeries Xai Laser and Kinzu Optical mice.
From the manufacturer
All mousepads from SteelSeries are thoroughly researched, tested and optimized for gaming. By definition, a true gaming product is superior to any other piece of computer hardware and accessory. Gamers constantly make split-second decisions, razor-sharp movements and use their equipment much more extensively than practically any other consumer group in the world. That's why SteelSeries spends so much time testing materials, durability, glide, precision and compatibility. And why there's no compromise on any of the above. And that means SteelSeries surfaces provide unparalleled performance and precision. The bottom line is, if you want to maximize your game, you have to maximize your equipment.
Picking the SteelSeries Mousepad That's Right for You
All SteelSeries surfaces offer something unique. The glide, feel, and comfort differs based on the material used to manufacture the product, but they all offer "gaming grade" precision and accuracy. How you personally feel about touching the material used to create the product, what mouse technology you use, and your playing style will help determine the SteelSeries mousepad that's suitable for you.
SteelSeries 4HD and 9HD, differing only in size, consist of a hard plastic composition specifically engineered for professional gamers who demand extremely consistent precision, accuracy and stability. The finely textured surface consists of tens of thousands of light reflecting microscopic points, optimized to enhance the tracking capabilities of next-generation gaming mice.
A rubber layer on the back gives the mousepad a steady and firm grip of your desk at all times, so you never have to worry about missing that headshot due to a wobbly surface. Thanks to the sophisticated tracking capabilities of the surface, the user is capable of performing exceptionally precise mouse operations, both in terms of minimal movements as well as high velocity "slingshots". This gaming surface was researched and developed in parallel with the SteelSeries Xai Laser Mouse to ensure that advanced high definition mice fully benefit from this surface.
SteelSeries QcK Series
This mouse pad went through extensive testing by gaming professionals before its release and with their feedback, the SteelSeries QcK was further developed to make it the ultimate cloth pad every gamer desired.
With the use of high quality cloth material, an optimized texture which guarantees both smoothness and glide and a specially designed non-slip rubber base this mouse pad blows away the competition and is a great choice not only for the hardcore gamer but also for graphic designers and others who use their mouse for extended periods of time.
The SteelSeries QcK is compatible with all types of mice and is ideal for starters.
The DeX was designed with a main mission in mind – to create a surface with the lowest possible friction on the market, prioritizing the speed and accuracy of mouse movements. The speed-optimized 3D surface of the DeX features a tooled pattern that maintains a smooth and consistent glide in every direction, even over the iconic SteelSeries logo.
Your mouse movements will feel effortless. A heavy silicone base on the DeX means your mouse is free to move, but the pad won’t. The orange silicone has no harsh smell to it and maintains a smooth, yet tacky bottom surface. In addition, the cloth surface and silicone base of the SteelSeries DeX come together in a perfectly covered edge. The two parts are heat sealed which means the edges won’t wear down or fray, further adding to the pad’s overall durability.
If your SteelSeries Dex starts to get dirty, cleaning it is a breeze. The pad is water resistant so you can wipe it down using water without consequence. After it gets wet, just dry off the moisture and get back to the gaming. During its development DeX was put through all sorts of trials and tribulations. Pro gamers were also involved in the durability testing. They have been testing DeX for quite some time and their feedback has been universal – DeX was built to last.

This mousemat has a textured, matt plastic surface that is bonded to a rubber backing. The surface works well with both roller-ball and laser mice, and I have found it durable and easy to clean. The rubber backing is sticky enough that it grips to surfaces very well and does not slide about during use.
My only criticism is the cost of this mousemat. It is decent quality, but I think it is overpriced for what is essentially a piece of plastic stuck to a piece of rubber. However, this hasn't stopped me buying two of these mousemats, as I cannot find the combination of features I am looking for anywhere else, at a lesser price.
In short, buy this if you don't find the price an obstacle. It is a decent quality, robust mousemat that gives a great response for both gaming and general activity and works with all mice I have tried with it.
EDIT: This has come down a lot in price since I first reviewed it. If it's below £15 when you are looking at it, then it's a good buy and would rate 4 stars for me.
I'm not a gamer, I spend most of my umpteen hours a day in front of the MacPro editing video but mouse mats have been something of a necessary evil - curling at the edges, skidding around on the desk, going shiny so the optical mouse doesn't work, dust and even dog hair getting embedded in it - all these things deter from the efficiency of the thing but worst of all, is constantly going over the edge of the mat, and accidentally dropping a bunch of files into the wrong folder - Grrrr.
Not any more. My partner bought me a 4HD Pro Gaming Mousepad because she was tired of hearing me complain about normal mats. Research on Amazon led her to this product and she went ahead and ordered it from Amazon's Jersey branch.
When it arrived, we duly cleaned the desktop and the mat appeared to 'glue' itself to the surface. Of course, it didn't really, it just felt solid.
I moved the Mac 'Magic Mouse' onto it, and my life changed a little bit. This was something new to me. I actually felt as though the cursor was a part of me - so precise is the movement, I feel I could actually paint with it (if I could paint at all, that is). Being slightly larger than the average mat means you have a better working area but you can also work right up to the edge of it and (maybe because it's hard) you seem to have a better feel for the edge and can avoid accidentally dropping files in the wrong place, and similar accidents.
Never mind gaming, if you want a mouse mat (sorry, pad) that stays put as though it's welded to the desk and which is incredibly precise, yet allows totally free movement of the mouse, this is for you.
It's rare that I give a product five stars but this one deserves six. I'd buy another if they were twice the price.
I bought it because I game in an armchair (due to space limitations) with the laptop on my lap and a mouse mat on the arm of the chair. Up until now I've had a solid plastic mat, about A4 letter sized, that we got at work as part of someone's marketing scheme. It was perfect but after a time the surface bubbled and broke, to the point it's so uneven the mouse wobbles and tracking is unreliable.
This mat doesn't really suit the purpose perfectly, I'm using the old mat under it to keep it flat, but moving the mouse has a beautiful glide and its grip on the surface below it is solid.
It's stupid actually. The type of mat I want you can get in bulk for about £0.80 but there's a £70 ordering fee. Tempting to open a shop as there seems to be a lot of people looking for a cheap, hard mat and zero supply for consumers.
This is an expensive mouse mat at £20 but it's worth every penny. I don't play games on my PC but I do a lot of image editing and web design and I can say without a doubt this is the best mouse may I have ever owned. The mouse seems to glide rather then needed pushed and the accuracy is incredible. If you're using a mouse everyday this will be a revolution for you. It might even help RSI as it's so easy to move the mouse around.
I'll be investing in more for my staff very soon.
