Conclusion

 

Overall, if you are a serious gamer looking for a serious mousing surface, Everglide's Optical range does not disappoint. They offer increased precision and accuracy in games and are especially useful for those that own optical mice. However, with the Giganta pads coming in at US$17.95 and the smaller Attack pads selling for US$15.95, they may be slightly out of reach for many of you.

 

That said, with the vinyl covered "Optica" pad coming in at a bargain price of US$9.95, Everglide does cater for a wide range of users and no matter what your budget, there should be a pad to suit you.

Rating - 9/10
