Before working on this review I never thought I'd be looking at $45 worth of mouse pads. In fact I wasn't even aware that you could purchase a mouse pad for more then $5. Before anyone jumps to any conclusions, I'd like to point out that this is not a review of a $45 mouse pad. Instead, I'll be taking a look at three hi-precision, semi-adhesive pads from XTRACPADS. If you haven't guessed, each pad is priced at $15. The pads I'll be looking at are part of XTRACPADS Logic series. According to XTRACPADS, each of these mouse pads will offer the user a fast and accurate mouse surface, an easy to remove semi-adhesive backing for multi-desktop usage, an ergonomic ultra-low profile and each measures in at 8.5"x11".
Let's take a look at the XTRACPADS Logic's packaging. Each mouse pad came in almost identical packaging, with a few minor differences. Each package was completely black with a picture of the mouse pad's design on the top. The only difference between the three pads I'll be looking at is the design. Also located on the front of the Logic's packaging is the name of the design. Today I'll be looking at the hex, pink, and black designs. Flipping the packaging over reveals the product's features, as well as the opening for the packaging. In this area I noticed a small spelling error in the word accurate. It was instead spelled "accuracte".
I was rather fond of the design for both the hex and pink models of the XTRACPADS logic. Both were almost identical, with the difference that pink was.., well.., pink. The texture of the pad wasn't your usual plush fabric. Instead it reminded me of a countertop, or a plastic tablecloth. According to XTRACPADS claims, this polypropylene material is state-of-the art and is superior for mouse tracking. Flipping the pad over reveals a cover which you can peel off to make the pad stick to a surface. Not only that, the adhesive is washable and reusable. This makes the Logic the first precision mouse pad with a semi adhesive backing.
Now that we've taken a look at the pads, let's see how they perform.
