How has everyone fared through this rough winter? I think just about every state in the continental US has gotten snow this season. We are just starting to warm up here and get rid of the 10 feet of snow that accumulated. One thing that we are seeing now is the thaw and re-freezing on the roads. There is slick ground and black ice everywhere when the temperature drops at night and in the morning. While driving to work the other night there was a car flipped and facing the wrong way on the side of the highway. The melting caused the snow banks to act like launching pads boarding the roads.
One area where slick surfaces are welcomed are mouse pads. Ever since mice went optical, people tend to overlook the pads. For a regular everyday user, anything might be sufficient. However, this is something that true gamers cannot overlook. A good mouse pad can bring out the true capabilities of a high performance mouse. Speed and accuracy are crucial in any game. A $5 pad isn't going to cut the mustard when you're trying to play at the top of your game. Why would you spend $70-$120 on a high performance gaming mouse and skimp on the surface it needs?
The Mionix Propus 380 Gaming Mouse Pad looks to meet the surface demands of gamers. The Propus 380 has a hard, yet flexible build for both durability and feel. The base construction is with PVC-plastic. The surface of the Propus 380 has a silver-metallic plastic coating to ensure optimal tracking on both optical and laser mice. There is an extra wide design measuring in at 380mm x 260mm. In imperial measurements that's about 15in x 10.24in. The bottom of the mat is constructed of textured rubber for extreme grip.
