Everglide Optical Mouse Pads Review - Testing

By: Asher Moses | Mice in Peripherals | Posted: Sep 9, 2002 4:00 am



To test the pads, we fired up an online game of one of our favorite multiplayer FPS titles, Counter-Strike. Compared to our original Everglide mousing surface, the Optical pads allowed for slightly better tracking when used with our Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer and their rough surface texture made lining up those all important headshots just that bit easier.


Although not as high performing as the Giganta and Attack Pads, we were also quite pleased with the Optica. Its smooth texture did make it slightly more difficult for us to accurately place shots, however, this is quite understandable since the pad's surface has been made out of vinyl and is designed with budget users in mind.


Don't get me wrong though, purchasing an Everglide Optical mouse pad won't instantly make you a Counter-Strike pro. However, the more serious gamers will certainly notice the difference when compared to a regular cloth mouse pad or an old motherboard manual.


All of the pads were comfortable to use due to their rounded edges and there was plenty of room to move across the surface of the pads.
