    General News Q-PAD Gamer XXXL

    <center><a href="http://www.emulation64.com/reviews/q-pad/1.jpg"><img src="http://www.emulation64.com/reviews/q-pad/1s.jpg" border="0"></a>
    <smallfont>Cleverly packaged to lower shipping fees.</smallfont></center>

    The Swedish company Q-PAD sent us two of their massive Q-PAD Gamer XXXL mouse pads to review. By massive I mean huge, and Im sure you all know what that means. The mouse pad measures 405 x 285 mm, about twice as large as a regular mouse pad you pick up at the local computer shop for a few dollars. It is in fact the worlds largest mouse pad. Why have such a huge mouse pad then? Well, if youre a die hard FPS gamer and spend many hours most nights of the week challenging your friends (and enemies) over a game of Counterstrike, Battlefield 1942 or Quake 3 you also know that a large mouse pad increases precision, as you have a larger area to move your mouse around. It is also very useful if you work with graphics, or any other work that requires high precision. If youre not a gamer or a graphics artist, why have such a huge mouse pad then? Because it looks so damn sweet.

    <smallfont> Sweetness defined. Definitely.</smallfont></center>

    Personal prints

    The Q-PAD Gamer XXXL is not only very large, theres something else that makes it much more personal that any other mouse pad you normally see; your own prints. We used two of the prints submitted to our art gallery by our friend and graphics master RatTrap, they can be found on <a href="http://www.emulation64.com/artwork.php">this page</a>.

    Send in your own image to Q-PAD, and they will print it on a high quality mouse pad. The result is a mouse pad with an excellent print, and the mouse glides very easily on the material. Ive tested this mouse pad for about a month now, and its as good as new, you cant tell I have even used it. Ive even spilled some food on it, and it was easy to clean off with a damp cloth.

    <smallfont> Gotta love the print quality. Thumbs up!</smallfont></center>

    4 mm

    The mouse pads sent to us are 4 mm thick, which is thinner than most regular mouse pads. However, if you want an even thinner one, Q-PAD offers a 1.5 mm version of Q-PAD Gamer XXXL as well.

    <smallfont>4 mm thin.
    </smallfont></center>

    Sticky

    The mouse pad by Q-PAD is made of rubber, not plastic. This ensures that the mouse pad will stay on your desk until you physically force it to move. You dont have to worry about it losing its grip when doing something important (like playing Battlefield 1942 ), which unfortunately cant be said about all mouse pads.

    Conclusion

    People who say an optical mouse doesnt need a mouse pad have obviously not tried a Q-PAD mouse pad, the difference is stunning. This mouse pad works very well with a regular mouse as well, Ive tested it with a Logitech Cordless Mouse and I'm very pleased.

    The Q-PAD Gamer XXXL costs 249 SEK (about $30) plus shipping and handling. It is in the same price class as other professional mouse pads such as IceMat, fUnc sUrface and Steelpad, or even a bit cheaper. Dont forget you get your own print with Q-PAD. A regular sized mouse pad, with your own print of course, is available as well from Q-PAD. It is priced 150 SEK plus shipping and handling.

    Thanks to Q-PAD for sending us these mouse pads to review, visit their site (click <a href="http://www.musmattor.com/html/english.html">here</a> for the english version) by clicking the logo below:

    You may get a chance, Martin and I have been talking about making a order. There was quite a bit of interest when he first asked about it, so hopefully we should get enough people to make a order.

    Well, really, they don't.

    But, I use a plain black mousepad with the little gel wrist support for my pc, which works great, and no mouse pad for my work pc (damn setup kinda sucks, so there's no room for it comfortably).

    Trust me you will notice a difference if you use a high quality mousepad. They are vital for optical mice if you want to get the maximum performance from it. Gamers can't go without them

    Well they don't need to, but in that case neither does a ball mouse.
    My point with that remark was the there is certainly a big difference between no mouse and a good one, even with an optical mouse.

    The ET/emu64 print on those pads are made by the design guru RatTrap. The same dude who designed the Emulation64 page.
