Hi tankers,


I need a new mouse pad, because my old one Razer ExactMat really kills rubber foots of my mouse. I need a good cloth one.

Whats would be your advice in that terms?

Thanks in advance.

I could never understand people that spend lots of cash for mousepads.

I always buy the cheapest one in some supermarket, the price varies between 1$ - 3$.

For me mousepad is the least needed part of my PC equipment, never paid any attention to it, and will never will. People are simply brainwashed "buy our mousepad designed by pro, for pro, from pro materials, you will become pro too".

Well, if someone just asks advice or help for his/her question, what kind of answer is this? You find it helpfull and constructive perhaps?
I dont have any suggestion for OP, but this kind of answers really only ruin whole forum basic idea.  :sceptic:
Just think it the other way round..

This isn't a cloth one but its the one I have used since COD 4 days and its still like new despite thousands of hours of use http://www.ebay.co.u...=item35c75160fb

Now I know it is expensive in the add but I bought mine from Staples a few years ago and I know it was less than £10 so if your passing a staples it might be worth taking a look it will last you years as the mats surface has never shown any signs of wear in all the time I have had it and it has never worn out mouse feet on my Roccat Kova in all that time

A quality mousepad comes a long way. The one I'm using at home is the same one that came with my parents' first computer - in 1992. It's a bit worn but not as badly as a lot of newer ones I've seen  :teethhappy:

@ Regamer

Thanks for your sensitive attitude.

@ eXtremateria

You are not totally wrong. Yeah, most of gamer equipment are sold with high prices just because named "pro mouse pad" or "pro gamer's choice" ext. But sometimes as OmaiGodman mentioned above, some cheap stuff gives you much more quality than pro ones offer. So yes, spending lots of money on such "advertised but below avarage" poducts has no sense.

So, I need real experiances to guide me to buy a good one. It would be cheaper even 1-3 $ range, or it would be a pro named. But I seek just one thing; good quality and comfort. If cheaper has these, why would I spend much?  

Thanks.

These will not improve your gameplay at all, it severely damages your accuracy.

No idea if it was cheap, my dad bought it 21 years ago, but it's a classic case of "back then, they made things to last" while nowadays things seem to be designed to only last for a few months/years before breaking down so people''ll be forced to buy new stuff.

People don't want to pay for quality anymore. Think about Ikea. Cheap stuff, and after a few years you throw it all out and buy a new interior. I remember my mum once told me that when she and my dad bought their first house, they bought sturdy oak furniture because that would last them a lifetime. That's how people thought back then. Now she buys a sofa with the intention to replace it after 5 years or so.

Exactly agreed.
