Usage and Conclusion
When it comes to tracking and movement, it was nothing spectacular. It seems par for other gaming mousepads or my bare desktop. When moving the mouse from side to side on the Control-RX then the Power-RX, the movement speeds were the same. I’m only comparing it to the Control-RX because they sent it to us and they were both released at the same time.
I am impressed with how flexible it is and how it retains it flat form practically instantaneously. Now the size is a good thing and bad. Its great if thats what you’re looking for for gaming but bad if thats what you need but can’t really fit it on your desk. (I’ve seen some pretty small desks out there.) Although, since it is so thin, you can just cut it down to size if you want to. I really don’t see any downside to that.
The fact that the mousepad is water resistant, and it actually is, is very cool. I have a 3 year old that likes to “help” me from time to time and knocks stuff over on my desk. At $28.25 on Amazon, at the time of this review, it’s actually a pretty good buy. There are several other mousepads out there that are cheaper but they are nowhere near the same size nor do they have the same build quality.
I still have to say that the thickness is a big downer though and I have to take a point away for that. I think that if they made it even 1 to 2 mm thicker, it would still be flexible for storage/moving and it would be much more comfortable for your wrist.
