One out of the box the first thing you’ll notice is how much the Sense pops on your desk. I’ve never seen such a good looking mousepad. For years gaming companies like SteelSeries have offered surface options with cool graphics but I think the Sense wins the category for ThinkComputers best looking mousepad.
The sense has an interesting feel beyond the textures that make it up. It’s heavy. For a gaming surface as thin as the Sense lacking any metallic properties you’d think it would be light, but it’s not.
The size of the Sense seems pretty standard for a gaming surface: 400mmx 280mm (or roughly 19x8inches for all you MURICAN’s). For a mousepad that stays rolled up in a plastic box without breaks it’s amazing how flat it lies on the desk the first time you lay it down.
On the left side of the mouse you’ll see the classic Roccat branding with some specifics about the Sense and on the right side you have the badass Roccat logo. If you’ve read any Roccat reviews I’ve done in the past you’d know that I’m a fan of the RocCAT.
The Sense is composed of 2 very important layers of material. The top being a coating made from durable micro-crystals and the bottom a super thin classic cloth pad with an ultra-rubberized backing providing grip. These layers are pressed together so tight you can’t see where one layer stops and the other starts.
Beyond looking sexy the Sense seems like it should perform well. Let’s move on to the usage section to see how it holds up.
