The packaging for the mouse pad stays with the red on black theme too, but this time uses the outline of soldiers to drive home the point of the gaming origin for this type of mouse pad. Along with the name of the pad, you get an image of the unrolled surface with the CM Storm Zero-G mouse on it.

With the introduction to the Speed RX pad, it states that this pad is specifically designed to work best with optical sensors, but will work well with laser sensors as well. It also states that this pad uses a 100% natural rubber base with an aggressive non-skid bottom with cloth glued to the top of it.

This side will allow you to touch the mat and see what it feels like next to a mall specifications list. On the right side are four features that should help sell you on the need to buy this pad when purchasing the Recon mouse.

There is an angled chevron pattern used on the back of the thick foam backing of the pad to allow it to gain excellent traction against any surface, including glass.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Chad Sebring

Jumping into computers for just the aspect of gaming is how it all started for me. After a solid year of gaming, I caught the overclocking bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and I have had both air and water setups to tinker with. With a few years of abusing computer parts, I looked for something new. I then decided to take my chances and try to get a review job with a online site. As an avid overclocker, I am always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals technology.
