The NGen04 was very similar to the NGen. I tested them in the same manner (by playing games and doing regular work) and found pretty much the same results. The mouse was able to slide smoothly across the mouse pad and I was able to have more control than I previously had with my old mouse pad. The only difference performance wise, was that it felt like the mouse was not as easily able to move from one side of the mouse pad to the other, but this was almost not noticeable.
One original thing to mention with this mouse pad, is how well the non-slip surface worked. I have an old desk that is made out of the 'fake wood' that is popular with the inexpensive computer desks today. Once I placed the mouse pad down, it stuck to the desk like a static cling to a window. I have been unsuccessful in all attempts to move the pad without having to pick it up. Also, it is easy to move as all you have to do is pick the pad up, as it doesn't have an adhesive bottom.
The NGen 04 was the second best mouse pad, missing first by 5 points. The only thing it lacked that the NGen had, was the total ease of movement, even though the 04 was far ahead of the generic. The rating scale used was 0-100, 0 and 100 being the worst and best respectively.
