Hello folks. I just got my Steelseries SX mousepad in the mail! In the past, i have used an everglide mousepad or just my desk, and the SX, depicted below offers some great improvements.
As a Starcraft player, mouse accuracy is extremely important. So is being able to make large movements across the screen, and small precise movements with the mouse. The SX's size while large, at 12.6" X 10.63", is not oversized, and offers plenty of real estate for any movements I need. Additionally, it is important that a mousepad be thin, and one of the reasons I ditched my previous everglide mousepad was it was almost a centimeter tall. The SX is only 2mm thick, and is almost as if it isn't even there on the desk except for the amazing feel it has.
By using aluminum construction and some other fanciness, the SX manages to allow a full range of rapid motion and precise moves required for any game, while remaining light and reasonably sized. Further, I can now make any move accurately and confidently instead of hoping I do not misclick and send my units off into space, while my mouse lags three eternities behind my brain.
Finally, the back of the SX features a rubber surface to allow the SX to grip to any surface so that your mouse and pad stay put and not slip on the desk.
While yes, the SX is expensive, it is well worth the cost and a huge upgrade for all gamers.
The SX is the perfect pad, the cost being the only downside, earning a 9.5/10, and is an excellent part of the Steelseries lineup.
