It would not be unusual if you never thought about your mouse pad, if you even use one. Many computer mice today don’t require them. Although, when playing computer games, especially First Person Shooters (FPSs), a mouse pad is often a necessity. While most of the time it doesn’t seem like a mouse pad could or would make a difference, it can if the precise location of the crosshairs makes the difference between eliminating your opponent or waiting to re-spawn. In addition to the performance increase, there are several other factors to consider when purchasing a gaming mouse pad, for instance size, texture, and thickness. A quality mouse pad can greatly enhance the gaming experience. Here I am reviewing the Roccat Sense mouse pad, designed specifically for computer gamers.
I’m a relatively new Roccat customer, but I have been impressed with their products since discovering them. I also have the Roccat Kone Pure gaming mouse, please check out the review here if you haven’t already read it. The company makes some great gaming products and I look forward to using more of their products in the future.
Along with replacing my aging Logitech mouse, I wanted a quality mouse pad to replace the free Alienware mouse pad that came with my computer. I had specific things I was looking for; the pad had to be cloth, thin, and have a large surface area. The Roccat Sense mouse pad fit the bill on all accounts. The surface is made with… well, it might be easier to let Roccat’s website describe it:
“To outfit commanders for rigorous combat, our ROCCAT™ Scientists engineered the Sense by taking an ultra-soft cloth upper structure and treating it with an advanced, friction-reducing microcrystalline coating – a combination that allows for the lightning-quick mouse movements and high level of precision needed for victorious, high-octane gaming.”
You may be thinking, “OK great, what does that mean…” In plain English it means the mouse pad is soft to the touch and provides a smooth (almost friction-less) surface. This equates to a mouse pad that feels nice and performs wonderfully. The Roccat Sense mouse pad is just 2mm thick, so it doesn’t have an uncomfortable edge that will leave a crease in your arm while gaming. The pad is also 400mm x 280mm, so there is little concern about running out of real estate to move the mouse around. So the Roccat Sense mouse pad fit, honestly it exceeded, all of my requirements and I definitely recommend it for anyone looking for a great gaming mouse pad.
