Introduction

Are you one of those people that love a big mouse pad? Then BOY have I got something for you to check out for review today. I used to like the smaller mouse pads, but I got a few larger ones for review and grew quite fond of them over time, but I have found one now that I just love. It is from Corepad, it is called the Deskpad XXL, and it truly is extra, extra large. C'mon check this big bad boy out...

I would like to thank Corepad for the chance to review there great products.

Specs

Here are some quick basic specs and info from the Corepad site:

- XXX HUGE very durable, flexible and smooth cloth mouse pad which covers most of your desk
- Great for low and high sensitivity mouse settings
- Compatible with all mice
- Specially designed non-slip rubber backing
- Washable with regular dish soap and a damp sponge
- 900 mm wide, 450 mm deep and only 3.0 mm thin or 35.4"wide by 17.7" deep by 0.12" thick

First Looks

The Deskpad comes rolled up like a poster and enclosed in plastic, with a small identifying label on it.



Here is a picture with my Logitech G7 on the Deskpad to show you the scale of this mouse pad:


Well that' it for first looks...

Installation & Testing

Well installation requires you to have a desk surface large enough to accommodate this extra large mouse pad. I am lucky in that respect, I have a nice large desk. Here it is 'installed' on my desk:


Of course I had to play a few games to get the pad broken in, and I have to say I love it. I used my MX1000, G7 and G5 with this pad and had no problems. All movement seemed smooth and fluid no matter what I did, even the most intricate detailed movements seemed to track perfectly. Everyday use is just as easy. I like being able to have such a large surface to work with, having the keyboard on the pad as well actually cuts down on the noise from it, and resting my arms on a soft surface is very nice as well.

Conclusion

What can I say, it's a great pad, I will be keeping this on my desk for a long time to come. I just love it! It works with all mice I tried it with, tracking and response seems to be on par with much more expensive mouse pads I own and have reviewed. I have to say that for some people this just might not be for them, especially if you have a small desk, but if you have a desk big enough to fit the Corepad Deskpad, then I suggest you give it a try and I think you will find that you will love it as much as I do. ThinkComputers gives the Corepad Deskpad XXL a 10 out of 10 score and our Recommended Award, that is if you have a desk big enough to fit it...


Pros:
- BIG surface area
- Smooth and responsive surface
- Doubles as a cushion for your desk!
- Quiets mice and keyboards

Cons:
- May not fit everyone's desk
