    I purchased a new MX Revolution mouse last week. Love it but was curious if it's a bad idea to use a mouse with no mouse pad. Does this wear out the bottom of the mouse or cause any harm to it? :confused:

    It seems to work fine on my wood desk.

    I use my wireless mouse right on the top of my desk w/no adverse results in the operation or to the mouse that I can see.

    That's good to know. I just hope I don't wear out my desk. ;)

    After using a mouse for like 4 years without a mousepad the desk was worn out.
    I bought a Razer Goliathus mousepad recently and it's perfect.
    I chose the small one, since I use the mouse @ 1600 dpi and don't need much space.
    If I don't need the pad or I need space on the desk I can roll in the pad because it's flexible :)
    Also: The mouse (Logitech G5 v2) runs so much smoother on the pad...

    Thanks bro. I'll search that mouse pad. Wouldn't want to ruin my desk. Really liking the MX mouse. Very comfortable with many options. Logitech rules!

    I use a huge mousepad that I purchased at an office store, Mainly for the size as I don't really do well with smaller mousepads. Although I'm not a fan of those harder surface mousepads like the Razer. I use a Logitech VX Revolution.
