This review is from: RAZER EXACTMAT (Personal Computers)
I recently bought this along with a Razer Krait to replace my Logitech MX510 and standard neoprene mat. What an amazing difference. A combination with which I'm making instinctive headshots on FPS games, not even having to think about aiming (when I'm on form :p).
I read a review which said this was quite large. Well it's not, it is HUGE! So huge that it would make a really good chopping board. Be warned of this, I have to have my keyboard halfway over it due to lack of space. Read the dimensions, 330x265mm, that equates to an area of nearly 1 square foot.
The surfaces of the mat do offer different levels of speed. At first I found the speed side far too fast for me to control with my mouse style, so I happily used the control side. Then I had an idea to try the speed side, but with the mouse senstivity turned down by about half. Adjusted to give me my preferred level of sensitivy and found I had much more control, due to the tighter 'grain' on the speed side. Quite funny that the speed side can give more control than the side named 'control'.
Overall I'm very happy with this mousemat (mouseboard maybe?). It's best suited to serious gamers (I don't suppose anyone else would pay this much for a mousemat anyway). The fact that it's quite pricey is why I give it 4 stars.
I can't comment on the lastability that others have complained about as I've only had this for 1 week, so time will tell. Fingers crossed that it will last though because its probably the best mousing surface there is!
