I don't know about that one, but I have the Steelpad S&S. It's a good pad, but my Belkin pad with a gel wrist rest was just as nice. :nodding:

I don't use a mouse pad, works fine for me. Didn't cost anything either. :)

^^ Yeah, same here.

I wouldn't buy a mouse pad that expensive... Sure it looks great and smooth and all, but does it really help at all compared to a basic tabletop or fabric/rubber mousepad?

I found that downgrading from a fabric/rubber mousepad to just a bare desktop really helped. Especially with a heavier mouse (wireless mostly) the rubber and fabric just built up too much friction.

Using a heavier mouse did become much more comfortable though when I upgraded to a cheap low friction plastic mousepad.

Any low friction mousepad will work though, and the difference from a $5 pad and a $50 pad is so small that it is definately not worth it unless you have way too much money to spend.

I try not to use mousemats - I find they just end up collecting dirt and smearing the bottom of your mouse with it. I prefer plain wooden tabletops. As long as you have a slightly heavy mouse, and keep the tabletop clean, you shouldn't have any problems.

Truth to tell, those new, smooth pads *do* help. Bought this 'Lightpad' together with G5 mouse for some 100 bucks and have to say that the overall experience is really smooth. Beats my old Explorer 3 + regular pad combo hands down.

Still, don't pay more than 25 euros of any pad. It's robbery otherwise.

As I said, my ten dollar Belkin gel pad works just as good as my Steelpad, save for the fact that the Steelpad is huge.
