    Well, I've been using it for a few days now, and it's ok. I had expected some sort of softer coating, as the frosted glass means that even with the teflon strips there's an abrasive sound when you move the mouse - quite annoying to a quiet pc enthusiast. And if you get the slightest grit particle caught between the mouse and pad then, being on glass, it grinds quite nastily.

    thats the quibbles alot of people have with icemats. Theres no disputing they are precise though.

    I know that sound would drive me insane so i avoided.

    Yeah, I would've avoided too had I known. Ah well, serves me right for thinking a mouse mat could be worth £13...

    I use a 3M "Precise Mousing Surface" its absolutely superb low profile so doesnt catch on anything, it sticks to the surface like no other mat ive used (I have to physically unpeel it from the surface if I want to move the mat). I just cant fault it.

    The icemat will produce that sound for a while till the initial coating of the pads is worn off. After that it glides silently
