View Full Version : What type of desktop mouse surface do you use?

Apr 28, 2010, 07:18 PM
I'm currently using a Razer ExactMat (dual sided aluminum with plastic coating mouse surface) and a Razer Diamondback laser mouse. I recently picked up a Apple Magic Mouse since I wanted multi-touch capabilities.

My problem is the Magic Mouse works like crap with both sides of my current mouse surface (the accuracy and speed coated sides). It feels like there is too much friction and the mouse is 'scraping' instead of gliding on the surface. The Razer mouse has 3 plastic pieces that the mouse glides on while the Magic Mouse has two long plastic bars.

Does anyone else encounter this problem and could recommend a better mouse surface? I'd rather not use my desk if I don't have to. :confused:

I like a good, dense, cloth mousepad.

XTRAC PADS RIPPER XL Optical Mouse pad (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817114182)

It's very responsive with any mouse, and big enough to double as a coaster

I went with the Razer Goliathus because it's huge.

I have a glass desk, and have been known to use 3 machines at my desk at the same time sometimes. So I wanted a place to keep up to three mice for a while.

I'm using a Magic mouse with it, and it's awesome.

I use a Steelseries QcK mini. :)

A glass desk. No mousepad.
