Large Attack Pad - Page 1
Many of us take for granted
the faithful rodents which greet our hands every day, much
less the road they travel on for our sakes. Quite a number
of users have been using the cheap cloth-based mousemats given
away during trade shows and exhibitions for years. These cloth
mousemats have an almost magnetic attraction to dirt, dust
and lint. Amazingly, these cheap mousemats also have the same
attractive quality in finding themselves on the desktop of
users. Yeah… the magic of freebies. As a result, degradation
in mouse sensitivity and performance is a problem which many
users face but ignore! Cleaning the ball and rollers of the
mouse will only alleviate the problem to a certain extent
because the mousemats will degrade with time, not to mention
that they are of inferior quality to begin with. Some users
are incorrigible and just grab another free mousemat to repeat
the process all over again.
A number of discerning
users do realise the need to provide the mouse with a good
surface on which to move. The 3M Precision Mousing Surface
(PMS) has been a popular favourite among many. Fellow Editor
Wilfred has been a fervent user of one for some time. Less
dirt accumulated on the mouse pad means less dirt accumulated
on the rollers of the mouse. This in turn, translates to a
smoother and relatively trouble-free mousing experience.
EverGlide brand of mouse pads have been the talk of the town.
The numbers of thumbs up given to these mouse pads from reviews
have been staggering. I was fortunate to obtain a Quake III
Arena Large Attack Pad from Silicon
Horizon for evaluation. So far, I've been using it for
3 weeks in a variety of games and applications. The verdict?
Another thumbs up!
