XTracGear Carbonic Mouse Pad
The XTracGear Carbonic ships inside of a cardboard envelope of sorts. On the front of the packaging we find the Carbonic in full view (both the top and bottom surfaces) across a bright red stripe that plays against the black background to highlight that image. We also find their web address at the bottom in white text.
The red and black theme carries on over to the back of the packaging, where we again see the Carbonic, but this time there are lines pointing out the key features. Under that image there are specifications, branding, notations to its recycle-ability, and there is also a QR code that will take you to the product webpage.
After sliding the Carbonic out of the packaging, we find we have a completely flat pad to start off with; there are no rolled edges to deal with. We also see that this surface has an angular striping that mimics the look of Carbon Fiber. Additionally, there is a large logo and naming applied to the bottom right corner of the surface.
As we get much closer to the cloth covering this pad, we see very fine threads woven in black, with grey chevrons on an angle to help the laser track easily. Plain mouse pad surfaces can tend to wear smooth, but even if that happens here, the contrast will keep the sensor on track.
After the laser cutting of the shape, it is the exposed, open celled foam that takes abuse, and is forgiving about it. We also see the bottom of that foam has a texture applied to ensure these pads do not slide around when in use.
While we will address each of these products again in the conclusion, at this point we will end our look at the Carbonic with a brief look at it with our mouse. There isn't a ton of room, and that means it is easy to travel with, but you will need to use a higher DPI/CPI level to keep from having to lift and reposition the mouse all the time.
