    I picked up a Griffiti fat 4" and the guy sent a slim by mistake but I'm using he Slim "cause the Fat is just too fat.
    I was using it with my Razer Ornata keyboard since I really hate the one it come with too hard not enough foam and too high. Has anyone tried a Glorious wrist Rest? thinking about getting the 13mm one since I think the standard one would be too high.

    I made my own wrist rest out of like 40 year old pine wood got the idea from seeing glorious wrist rests made of wood. I sanded the hell out of it feels great anyway way better then whatever Razer was trying to do with the Stock Ornata rest.

    I have the glorious, as does my wife. We enjoy them, but they're fairly expensive. My only regret is that the cats like to climb all over them, and the claws put little pulls in the fabric, makes it look like shit.

    I use a Glorious at work and have no complaints. It stays in place well and is comfortable. A few months of heavy use and it still looks and feels good.

    I'm of the belief that the greatest comfort is with a padded style, generally. One for keyboards, and a loose (ie unattached) cushion for mice. At the moment I have a slim gel styled one along with an old IMAK ErgoBead mouse cushion. However, I have actually been prototyping with an entirely new substance that I feel could be as good if not better than gel or even memory foam! I'm going to probably get a Glorious memory foam in order to test against what I hear is "the best" commonly available.

    Here's a question - would you be willing to spend a bit more ( for keyboard/mouse rests that use a different, supportive material that is equal/better to memory foam in many ways, has a removable, washable cover, and is materials sourced and assembled in the USA?

    I use a Grifiti at work and I like it a lot. I move it around a ton and have quite a bit of room though.

    I have this one (the Glorious one OP mentioned) and the matching mouse rest. I'm about a year in and I still feel like they are the best rests I've ever used. Super thick, firm but gives enough to not hurt your wrist. Really helped turn around my wrist pain.

    Height wise, if you rest a ruler on the top of the rest and let it extend out to the keyboard, the ruler meets my K70 first row of keys about halfway up the key, if that makes sense.
