CONCLUSIONS & AFTERTHOUGHTS
Overall I would consider my experience with the Steelpad
to be a positive one. It's a high quality, well designed product that
does what it does very well. It appears to be quite durable and the
sleeve is a nice addition for the LAN party crowd. While the "bling"
factor of the Steelpad is pretty low, I wouldn't consider that to be
a drawback. Compared with some of the other gaming pads I've seen, the
Steelpad's beauty lies in it's simplicity and quiet functionality. With
a MSRP of almost $40 US, it's not cheap, and availability seems to be
somewhat limited here in North America.
I'll have to admit that I probably wouldn't have gone
out and purchased a Steelpad, but now that I've used it for a while
I don't think I'll be going back to "commando-style" mousing anytime
soon. Sort of reminds me of the first time I tried on some….. Nevermind,
I promised you we wouldn't go there.
