Hey all. Looking at scratching small itches in order to put off big time expenditures (holding off upgrading the main rig for another generation) - trying not to be [H]ard I guess But anyway, I'm using an old 3 year old cloth mousepad I got for about 7$. It's *apparently* wearing out the feet on my G5 (we can't buy the feet in where I'm from, and that the middle mouse button of which is sadly starting to conk out), and I figured I might need to replace the pad soon anyway should I get a new mouse. Looking at the following mousepads: 1. Razer Sphex - 18$ 2. Razer Scarab - 43$ 3. Razer Ironclad - 63$ 4. Roccat Taito - 25$ 5. Roccat Sota Granular - 34$ 6. SteelSeries 3HD = 32$ 7. SteelSeries QcK = 13$ 8. SteelSeries QcK Mini = 11$ 9. SteelSeries QcK Mass = 21$ 10. SteelSeries QcK Heavy = 32$ 11. **Screw the mousepad?** Using a hard plastic surface-d desk. Obviously, the cheaper the better. I'm not sure if I'm favoring the Sphex at the moment though, having a paper thin mousepad doesn't make the investment feel worthwhile. Neither does shelling out for an Ironclad. So I'm more inclined towards the other 3 listed. I play SC2 competitively so I'd like something that is worth getting in terms of tracking/precision. I'd also prefer a durable surface that won't degrade like this old cloth pad (but at 7$ amortized over 3 years, I guess I can't complain). I'm not sure if I'd prefer a hard surface to a soft surface. Comments/Experiences would be welcome. Would appreciate your inputs on this. Thanks! EDIT: Willing to consider other mousepads based on availability here. *Please do note the discrepancies between prices you'd find from the Egg and the prices I listed here. I know, arbitrage sucks.
