PRODUCT WALKTHROUGH (cont'd)



Steelpad decided to not ugly up your beautiful new mouse pad with writing and logos, using only a small fraction of the pad for its logo. As you can see, even the logo is exquisite in its simplicity. The logo is located in its lower left corner.



As you can see the QcK+ is quite thin indeed, instead of those bulky Walmart specials you get for a couple bucks because of the pretty flower on them.



Due to my original preference of being a commando mouse user (no pad at all), I want to make sure that the mouse pad is virtually unmovable just like a desk would be. Steelpad's specially designed non-slip surface is just that, specially designed to not move and it does it well.

 

PRODUCT PERFORMANCE



As you can see above, this mouse will not fit on the average desk without serious real estate movement. This was the best positioning I could get while maintaining most of the mouse pads usable space. This slightly disturbed me as I don't feel that anyone really needs that much space for mousing.


Well now it was time to begin the testing, and I figured that Unreal Tournament 2004, Prince of Persia: Warrior Within and Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth were a nice collection of different types of games to try this big boy out on.


Gaming Break *Cue elevator music*


So now that I have spent several hours "testing" this mouse pad (see: slacking off playing games instead of going to work), let me fill you in on my findings. The performance was great, the mouse slid effortlessly on the pad. I also not once had to lift my hand to readjust the position of the mouse, which is very bothersome in the middle of a game. After adjusting to different mouse sensitivities, I noticed no loss of performance. Steelpad is true to their word saying that it is ideal for low sensitivity mousing. Though this is a gaming utility mostly, graphical artists would be very happy with this as well. Due to its overly large size, you will never have to readjust your mouse and risk destroying the editing you just did at 800% zoom on those tiny little pixels.
