Bad surface for the G5.



Very pretty, and is a great match for the Lanbox Lite (Thermaltake says so!)

Scratchy and loud with my Logitech G5. Great surface for sensitivity though :D

the blue bird


As other people have said it would be nice if you could disconnect the usb cable but no biggie.

good size and works well with my microsoft optical mouse..sticks to the desk and doesn't move around. I bought this to replace an old mouse pad and to play CS. The dimmer is a nice touch

no complaints as of yet

A NO-NO for low DPI laser mice


If your laser mouse is lower than 2000 DPI, buy a Fragmat instead. My 1200 DPI mouse works great with the WoW nightelf/bloodelf fragmat (absolutely no frusterations). Deathadder mice I believe are 1800 DPI.. I have no idea how those would perform on...

Top notch performance with G5 mice. I'm sure other 2000 DPI mice work great with it as well (as well as any higher than 2000)

DOES NOT PERFORM WELL WITH LOW DPI OR OPTICAL MICE. I originally bought it for use with my Radtech BT600 bluetooth wireless mouse, which is a 1200 DPI mouse. Log!tech G5 mice are 2000 DPI and work flawlessly. Not 1200 DPI mice. 1200 DPI mice will...

Great Mouse Pad!


I love this mouse pad! It is a great optical mouse pad! It is huge, which for me, is a great thing. The adjustable LEDs are so sweet! I love Thermaltake, but I didn't know that their mouse pad was so awesome, not to mention, the mouse pad matches my...

Depending on how you look at it the size could be a con, but it wasn't for me. It's just a big mouse pad

functional bling


its like a molded solid piece of plexi with a black bonded surface on one side. pockets for rubber feet and led molded into bottom. very rigid and flat. if you have a smooth desk this thing will never slip and be your excuse for getting owned.

my desk top is actually an industrial table with a very hard smooth laminate surface. I've played without a mouse pad for years but it looked like this pad might mimic that surface and ; look sweet at the same time . Well it does, has a slight grain to...

none for me but it is big and i did notice that my $9.99 optical mouse wasn't diggin it, but i use a laser

Sweet pad


Great buy, i think ill get one for my buddy, he loves blue, and computer games.

Hard!!!! no more flimsy cheap pad for me, its wider than standard pads too, great for optical or laser mice. the Blue LED is cool too....IMO it should be able to get brighter

brighter LED would be nice...I was thinking this thing would light up my whole desktop

No complaints


If your looking for a nice mouse surface, get this.

Great quality! I've noticed a faster mouse response time (Vs. Wood Desk) The blue light is just great. There's no lip around the pad (problem I've noticed on other light mouse pads). Also, this is very large, no problems with mouse going off it

The blue light fails to turn off after my system turns off. Might be my motherboard (this is a problem as I sleep next to my computer). Made of some sort of plastic (the bottom part, not the top), this makes it unbendable. Not a problem for me, might...

Wow, love it


Don't forget to order a wrist pad with this like i did! You'll need it :P

The blue is such a nice blue. Matches my computers case perfectly

You'll need a wrist pad for this, after using it for an hour, my wrist is killing me! But its a minor con, just get a squishy pad and you'll be good to go ; Also, mine came with a scratch down the middle, not a big deal at all because who stares at...

The dimmer switch is a much better solution than an on/off switch. The plastic appears to be acrylic, if it is, watch out for drops, it's likely to chip. It would be complete with a wrist rest, but oh well! It's a great pad!

Laser compatible unike my Belken that said it was. Slick surface is perfect for headshots. The blue glow ties my rig together very well

The pad is very large, this is not an issue for me, hence 5 of 5, but if space is a premium, look out. Or, turn it on it's side
