MOUSE PAD REVIEW:

Frakkin' HUGE XTrac Ripper XXL Mouse Pad... err, desk-pad review

Review Date: March, 22, 2013

Questing for the right mouse pad
In the past I have used all kinds of different mousing surfaces, from el-cheapo mouse pads, bare desk surfaces to expensive elite gaming mouse mats. Most of today's modern mice adhere to a vast array of different surfaces all without skipping a beat. However some mice have issues with some surfaces they are forced to navigate on. If i'm lazy i'll just use the bare desk surface to mouse on but prefer not to. I game a lot and mouse response/tracking is of considerable importance to say the least. It's also nice to know when you are editing images in your favorite image editing app your mouse movements are smooth and precise as can be. In my quest to find the perfect mouse pad up for consideration was the size, it had to be big, the bigger the better actually. Rummaging through the net I came upon the XTrac Ripper XXL Mouse Pad and decided to give it a whirl. I ordered it through Amazon.com for about $26US at time of purchase and received it a few days later.

First impression: Woah, that's a huge B!#@#!
This mouse pad is huge! Just what I was looking for. The XTrac Ripper Mouse Pad is advertised as being 36 x 18 inches large and 3mm thick. Using my tape measure and digital caliper mine came out a tad smaller measuring 35.5 x 17.5 inches and 2.6mm thick, very close, just a few hairs undersized. The XTrac mouse pad comes with a smooth soft cloth surface with a layered cushioning rubber back which prevents unnecessary slipping. It costs $26US over at Amazon.com. Considering I was looking at desk pads too this is a steal since many similar sized desk pads cost anywhere from $30 to some nicer ones well over $100!

Using the XTrac Ripper XXL Mouse Pad, surface performance, tracking
So far i've had a very good experience with mice response and tracking using the XTrac Ripper Mouse Pad. Playing games from WoW to FPSs and editing large photoshop files the mouse behaves very responsive with no lagging, jumping, wondering, skipping or jittering. The XTrac Ripper Mouse Pad makes the few mice I tested, (Logitech G400, Logitech G600, Razer DeathAdder and Monoprice 5-Button mouse), all respond with smooth and accurate movements using optical and laser sensors. Ohh and it's whisper quiet too. Gamers with their hard surface or aluminum mouse pads can attest to their audible mouse dragging noises.

More than just a mouse pad
I consider this more than just a simple regular 'ol mouse pad, more like a desk pad. This is the best friend you can get your desk as long as your desk size can support it. I don't have to worry of confining my mouse to a small area and limiting its movement based on a small mouse pad. I can also protect my desk from wear and tear, spills, dirt, etc. As a side note the XTrac Ripper XXL Mouse Pad also provides a small amount of cushioning for your forearms and elbows to help with your long mousing sessions.

The XTrac Ripper XXL Mouse Pad is about 1/8-inch or 3mm thick. Enough padding to protect your elbows/forearms from long hours at the keyboard. (Click image for large view)

What I liked
-- It's Huge, can use it as a desk pad for your mouse, keyboard and even a couple of cold drinks too.
-- Mice tracking was excellent, no adverse curser performance to report.
-- I have used the XTrac Ripper mouse pad for a month and so far so good, no weirdness or wear patterns yet..

Mouse tracking of the XTrac Ripper XXL Mouse Pad is spot on providing mice with optical and laser sensors a very responsive surface. (Click image for large view)

What may be an issue
-- It's size... if you have limited desk space then this might not be for you.
-- Long-term durability remains to be seen but going on 4 months and just like new.

Final core-reaction
Overall this is about the best mouse pad, (desk pad), I have ever owned. Mouse response and tracking are spot on. I love the massive large size so I don't have to worry about keeping my mouse confined within a small specific area. I can also use the massive surface to protect my desk from various types of nefarious assaults as well. Simply the XTrac Ripper Mouse Pad works, is comfortable and looks nice on my desk. What more could you ask for in a mouse pad?
