Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Everglide Gaming Mat - Everglide Gaming Mat
Tue, April 02 2002 | 11:01AM | PermaLink Feedback?
've used both the 3M and Everglide products - I own a Quake 3 Attack pad for home use and a standard pad for work - and frankly, the Everglide pads are far better. I always found the 3M surface too "boggy"; it made the user feel like they were trying to push their mouse through a small puddle of thick glue. I'm not entirely sure what manifests this effect, possibly the soft polymer the surface was made out of was bending under the weight of the mouse and hand, but it was annoying and horrible for gaming. In comparison, the Everglide pads - made out of tough plastic - don't bend under weight, the mouse rides on top of the peaks of the surface. This gives the mouse a very "glide-y" feel to it; it actually feels like it's been lubricated. You in the back, stop sniggering.
