    mouse mats...

    Well ive just worn out my kensington gel one as my cyborg is draggin on one side and its gray in some areas xD. Any recommendations for a pad like £5-£10tops, or more importantly what should i be looking for? in terms of colour and texture because ive got one of them free mouse pads that are plasticly and blackw with orange image in the middle but my mouse keeps jumping on it. Are the sharkoon ones any good? http://www.scan.co.uk/Product.aspx?WebProductId=444816 or should i pay 30p more for the all black one?

    ANy help is appreciated .

    Buy a sheet of carbon fibre and make your own it looks good and makes very good mouse mats which never seem to jog at all...

    Re: mouse mats...

    any recommendations for places to buy from? and what tool would be suitable to cut it with?. Id expect a decent sized carbon fibre sheet to be more than £10 though....

    I have a Sharkoon one, and it is passable, certainly better than the ones you get free with stuff. Main problem with it is that the corners began to curl up after about a week of using it.
