Many underestimate the difference a good mouse pad can make. If you are someone who wants a mouse for casual use, then you probably won’t have to worry about all the different types. But if you are someone who is deep into competitive gaming, then precise movement is the key, as you wouldn’t want to miss a headshot just cause your mouse pad sucked.
Not many mousepads use Cordura, a nylon fabric that is highly durable. And although the Cooler Master MP510 is not the first, it’s the most popular. This material comes in many variances, and this one has a honeycomb texture to it. Additionally, it is very rough, probably one of the roughest soft mouse pad you will ever find. When you first use it, you will notice that it acts quite differently than the mousepads you are used to, but it gets fine after some use.
Mice that have bigger feet will probably work on this better than ones with small feet. Moreover, the CM hexagon logo uses a fluorescent material so it glows in the dark.
The rubber on the back also causes no problems to stay seated on the table even after big swipes from the mouse. This could vary depending on the material of the table though. The Cooler Master MP510 is also super durable thanks to the material it uses, it’ll last you a long time.
Building a PC can be exciting but at the end of the day, you would have spent a lot of time on things like choosing the best keyboard, the perfect headset and the most suitable mouse that works for you. Right now you just want a mousepad that gets the job done and the Logitech G240 is the perfect choice for this job.
It requires little to no effort in considering as it has everything most gamers need. It’s a cloth mousepad and has a rubber base that’ll stick to the table. If you own a Logitech mouse, you can even use the Logitech G Hub software to optimize the calibration.
The Razer Sphex V2 is the perfect mousepad if you want something from a major manufacturer, but don’t want to spend a fortune. The mouse can come as cheap as 1,700 Rs with larger variants being a bit higher.
The mousepad has a smaller variant which can be used on office desks with bigger variants facilitating a wide range of motion. The surface is smooth, being a balance between the ‘soft’ and ‘hard’ we find in most mousepads. The mousepad is also durable and has an adhesive back which makes it stay where you place it.
If soft mousepads are not your thing, or maybe your mouse doesn’t like soft mousepads then you should consider the Logitech G440 as it’s one of the best when it comes to hard surfaces.
The price can be a turn-off for most people, but the price always goes higher with harder mousepads.
If you don’t own a Logitech mouse you will be missing out on the Logitech software optimization, but many mice work just fine without it. This mousepad brings in a little more friction than the others in this list, so if that’s your thing go for the Logitech G440 as it comes from a trusted manufacturer.
This mousepad comes cheap and yet can still be compared to the Razer Goliathus Extended in terms of functionality. It also doesn’t have the large graphics as the Razer Goliathus which can be a turn-off for most because of the many knock-offs available in the market. The pc master-race logo is also not very aesthetic looking but it’s small and they do have a stealth version too.
The pad also has woven edges which can be considered something great to have at this price point. Decolouration from age and stains will also somewhat disguised because of the all-black surface. The mousepad has much bigger variants but they also do have higher price tags.
Do remember the prices may be a little higher right now because of the lockdown. If you are also looking for a mouse, be sure to read our article on the best budget mice under 3k.
