almost every single pick is bad, failed to mention any decent pads such as those from xraypad, artisan, the coolermaster mp510, or the dechanic control. do not trust this reviewer, he doesn't know enough about mouse pads, and doesn't even talk much about speed, static friction or other actually important aspects.
This is a thread to comment on an article. You should start a thread in the forum to seek this sort of advice. In addition, I would recommend posting your question at our sibling site, Tom's Hardware, instead.
Why is it always Razer, Logitech, Steelseries? There are so many better mouse pads out on the market. Like Lethalgaminggear, Artisan, equate, XTen, endgame gear, list goes on and on. Not to bash the article, I respect your doing the count down. Just get outside of those crap pads. They are marketed big time by a company for eSports players and in most cases the eSports player has to use them for sponser reasons. Thanks for your time.
