Not up to the usual AmazonBasics standard - poor durability
on 16 September 2011
When this mousemat arrived I was fairly impressed. It's pretty standard: a black cloth top on a non-slip rubber base. The AmazonBasics branding is discrete as always, and does not detract from the product's appearance. In fact, as black mousemats go it's actually quite nice looking. The problem is its durability. I've had it since January, and the bottom edge has long since begun to fray: essentially the cloth cover is coming away from the rest of the mouse mat.
This simply isn't good enough: the price may be relatively low, but mousemats are not expensive objects to begin with. I'm afraid that, nice looking though it is, this product simply doesn't live up to the surprisingly high quality standards that have made AmazonBasics my first option for a lot of accessories (especially HDMI and USB cables).
