I love my Ratpadz pad so much that I bought one for my husband, one for work, and one for every single one of my siblings. I would never have believed that a mousepad would be worth $25, but the surface feels slick as anything, yet still very controlled.
Let's put it this way, my office upgraded computers in early fall. The tech came over to do the install, and when he started using the mouse, he stopped, and then spent a few seconds moving the mouse around. Even he liked the pad!
