When you think of the ultimate gaming computer, I don't think a mousepad is what that first comes to mind. Nonetheless, mousepads are an essential part of any computer system. Sure, you can easily go without one, but depending on the surface you use, it could cause your mouse to perform poorly. If you use your mouse on a hard computer desk, a mousepad can certainly make it a lot more comfortable. That is not to mention without a reliable mousepad, you may sometimes find your cursor going in a direction you didn't tell it to go. Now I'm not saying a mousepad is going to give you more headshots or increase your APM (Some people might disagree), it certainly could help you along the way. Mousepads come in all shapes, sizes and materials, so how do you know a good one from a bad one? Well, a cheap rubber pad with a hard plastic surface might do the job for some, but for the rest of us, we would want something more accurate and reliable. You are probably also looking for something smooth and makes sure your cursor never disobeys. Nothing is more frustrating than when you move the mouse and nothing happens. Fortunately, what we have here at APH Networks this morning is Mionix's Propus 380 gaming surface. While this isn't the only gaming surface out there, if you are looking for a nice metallic black mousepad, right off the bat I would assert this is a great pick. It offers the high quality surface you would expect from a good gaming mousepad -– the only bad news is, the Propus 380 won't help you pay your bills at the end of the month, unless, of course, you are a graphics designer. How well did this work out in real life? We took one in to analyze, so read on to find out what we have found in our review today.
