Great mousepad, not sure about gel pad tho...
on 4 December 2015
I am quite a fan of roccat items simply because I like blue, but I've been using razer vespula before purchasing this product.
(I reviewed it as well - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/customer-reviews/R1JYPHD6NSRL6T/ref=cm_cr_pr_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B0036EYW38)
After using razer vespula about 1.5 years, one of rubber pad broke off and it start I've been looking for new but similar mousepad, and I was hooked on this one because it had some nice looking, BLUE logo on it.
When I unboxed it, one thing kind of caught me surprised. Gel pad which I thought was attached to the mat, was actually not attached. In the end it wasn't much like razer vespula after all, although it looked similar.
I have to admit, despite my initial disappointment, mouse mat itself's performance was better than my old mouse mat, holding in place much better. Gel pad however-was not that comfortable, and constantly moving like headless chicken wherever my arm was moving. After trying to control the situation in several ways I had to make decision to not use Gel pad at all.
one thing to notice - unlike cloth mouse pads these hard mouse mats tend to wear out bottom of your mouse
If you're using flat mouse with no kind of protective pad sticking out of bottom surface,
(most of mouses do have protective pads, but there are always some exceptions or pads cannot be replaced)
don't buy this kind of mouse mat. It will damage your mouse eventually.
For my mouse, this mouse pad is doing very good job in my gaming and other experience with my pc.
The additional gel pad is a disaster, unless your desk is very rough that gel pad won't even budge, it's probably better off not using the gel pad.
Price-wise, They seem a little overpriced in my opinion.
Due to price and horrible gel pad, I simply cannot give 4 or 5 stars.
