Hama Laser Apple
On a recent cleaning spree I was trying to empty the last of the boxes we still have lying around from moving home earlier in the year and I came across a box of old and new office supplies. Among the items was this Hama Laser mat with the fresh green apple design. I actually have two of these mouse mats as well as the apple design I also own a lovely bright yellow lemon Hama Laser mouse mat.
Personally, I think that these are really nice and decorative, I love the vibrant colours and fruit themes. These mouse mats are really very thin and instead of being a mat, like more conventional mouse mats these actual adhere to your desk surface. When in place these mouse mats won't move around without peeling them off the surface which means that you have a sturdy spot to use your mouse on. However, this can also be a bit of a pest if like me you move around your desk on a regular basis, often I just want to move this ever so slightly and you have to peel it away and re-stick it down, it can be a bit of a hindrance.
These are relatively cheap to buy but I couldn't remember exactly what I paid for mine, so I did a quick search online and found that on Amazon you could currently buy these for £3.88. I am also pretty sure that at some point I have seen these available in poundland so it is worth looking out for a bargain.
I did accidentally spill some coffee over one of these mats and the ends of one side did being to peel away and curl ever so slightly. Although the mouse mat is still usable it wasn't nearly as attractive as it had been. So be careful not to get these wet as they don't clean well or are not as resilient as some more conventional types of mouse mat.
This Hama Laser apple mouse mat is nice but it isn't my favourite. I love the design I just prefer a mouse mat with a bit of extra padding and support for your wrist. Therefore, I am going to give this a three out of five star rating. It is a nice idea it just isn't for me.
