    func pad

    just got mine today from alienware. its so cool, looks much better than that nasty blue one.

    Anyway i was just wondering if the pad wears out easily.
    I have a mouse with no 'feet' (teflon pads) and i was wonding if the plastic on the bottom would wear out the pad easy.

    anyone had one of these for a long time and experienced wear?

    ive just used it a tiny bit, 10min game of CS. im using the rough(er, its not really that rough) surface.

    I had a ratpad normal before, and i didn't like it at all. This, i feel is much better for me anyway, the ratpad was too smooth. no noticable improvement in cs though... but i really do suck and i think it will take a while to get fully used to it.. and i aint pld cs in ages

    plus with this one u get 2 surfaces, doubles the chances that u will actually like it.


    yep u do get the mouse clip which is actually really handy

    alienware one just looks so cool, esp next to a black keyboard, and silver screen .

    Just got mine too baka (from alienware aswell, your right it looks a hell of a lot better than the normal ones)
    i got a black kb and silver screen aswell and i use the rough side..hmmm..anyway i hear they do wear out after a few years of very intensive use, but still, thats a long time and at £14 its well worth the cash tbh

    I have been using the same ratpad for over a year now and it is still just as good.

    Life in the fast lane is just how it seems
    Hard and it is heavy dirty and mean

    put it this way I ordered on the 15th and got mine today.... woot right on 10 days..

    but dunno if they made a mistake cus i mailed them 2 days ago, and they said they would send it out today( which was yesterday)... so if u order, email them asking whats taking so long after 1 day

    i think they are an american company so thye may have all their stock there, might be why its 10-12days
