    Question mouse pads

    hardly exciting, i know, but what kind of mouse pads are people using these days. i've got a cheap rubber mouse pad which is crumbling and needs replacing.

    are those glass ones any good? need something that's smooth and silent please.

    I use my tabletop. Otherwise just on the top of all of the sheets of paper called homework / coursework perfect in terms of quality (fairly flat) and cheap.

    Woohoo now Assistant Manager!

    been looking at scan for the free shipping, and think i might plump for the v1 icepad, as it's about the same size as my current pad, and i don't need the larger v2 one.

    cool, cheers chaps. went for the icepad. It was either that or the steelpad, and i've read they perform more or less equally, but i thought the glass might be interesting. should be a nice upgrade from the foam crap.

    oh cool, cheers dave. Currently using an MX310 (don't really need anything fancier - mainly use my mouse for surfing and music production. Just need a decent mat as current one no longer cuts it.)

    Lakeland plastics do a teflon reuseable baking sheet, that plus double sided sticky tape = surface at least as good as an ice mat and around 3 times bigger for next to no cost.

    well, i've gone for v1 as it's just slightly bigger than my current pad, which i've never had a problem with size-wise so i v1 ought to be fine. i'm not twitch gaming with this thing...

    have you done this? i think it's just easier to buy a mouse mat for £13 inc shipping, to be honest.

    Yep, me and 2 housemates all have 2foot square mousing surfaces (admittedly most of mine is covered in crap) that are as smooth as you could ever want.
