When I saw this mouse mat from The Keyboard Company I just knew it was something that would be used time and time again in our household as we do like our PC games! At first, you will notice that the design of the mat isn't like any other mat you may have seen before and there is reason behind the odd shape. The 'outer' edge is arc shaped and the bottom edge has a curved finish to it. I am unsure of the material due to my eagerness to try the mat out and throwing away the packaging. What I will say is that the surface is perfect for optical mice and the sensitivity is at such a level to acheive optimum accuracy.
I would say that this particular mouse mat would be ideal for anyone who loves PC gaming as the accuracy of the mouse is often of paramount importance. The mat came in a number of colours and hardly weight much. The reason I say 'came' is that I don't seem to be able to find anyone anywhere for sale online. I can't remember which source I used online when I purchased the mat, but I can only assume they are a discontinued line as I can't find one on the manufacturers' site even.
The underside of the mat is such that it grips firmly onto the work surface and due to the rubberised finish it doesn't leave any marks. I have never had any problems with dirt on the optical mouse head due to this mat and so I am confident it isn't a big magnet for dirt and dust.
I have never had any problems with the mat, and the accuracy it offers to my mouse is perfect for not just gaming, also every day tasks and allows me to be quicker with the mouse due to the accuracy. If you can find one like this or similar then I would advice you consider one, especially for optical mouse owners that are keen gamers!
