My optical mouse was not happy bouncing it's laser off my desk. I bought this for the wrist support and for the price. The texture and shape is very comfortable and my mouse loves the reflectivity. It moves very smoothly now. I peeled off the protective tape on the underside of the pad and it sticks really well to desktop, without being impossible to peel off and move to a different location. Only time will tell how well this holds up. Even it it falls apart in 6 months, I think i will still be very happy with it and will buy this same pad again. (Note, I am not gaming... only Word Processing, Excel Spreadsheeting and coding).
Fairly comfortable, better than most type of wrist pads. But like many reviewers, the gel had started to leak. I was very disappointed, I thought it could last longer than a year. I ended up using some black duct tape, intending to buy a new one, but it's held up with the tape so I've forgotten to buy a new one. I'm hesitant to purchase a new one, but would like one for a 2nd computer. I will probably be proactive and tape it first, although it won't win any beauty contests after that.
I bought two of these and both of them deformed with a the first couple months. The gel is now compacted under both wrists making them uncomfortable to use. Gel hasn't leaked yet, but both pads are defective.
PROS: Very inexpensive
CONS: Gel pad deforms under your wrist making it uncomfortable
I truly apologize that the gel has started to spread out from this mouse pad. I can assist you in setting up an RMA for a replacement if you would like as we cover this product with a one year warranty. Obtaining the replacement would be of no additional cost to you. If you would like to proceed with the RMA, please provide the order number and I can set that up for you right away. Thank you!

Jel leaked from the gel pad
Bought 2 of those on sale and it didn't even last 6 months. Would not advise to buy this item. Poor quality.
PROS: Nice shape and black color.
CONS: Gel pad quickly formed the dent under the wrist and then gel leaked and made quite a mess.
When you first buy this mouse the quality of use is great. After extended use, the gel can deform or leak. The mousepad itself has very good grip on the table. My mouse does not always pick up input when moving it on this surface even at a high dpi. I am using the Azio levetron gm2000 and it works on most other surfaces.
PROS: Firm, good grip
CONS: gel leaks and deforms. mouse does not work very well on this surface.
I'll echo what many of the other reviews say the gel pad will eventually deform to the point where it's pretty much useless and, depending on strenuous your usage is, may rupture or leak. However, unlike some reviewers who seem to have had problems after a few days, mine lasted several months so I guess, taking the low price into account, it's not that bad a product even taking into account that it will need to be replaced occasionally.
My apologies for the issues faced while using this mouse pad. I see that we are still within the one year warranty for this product. If you wanted to obtain a replacement, I can help set up the RMA. Please note that obtaining a replacement mouse pad would be of no additional cost to you. Please let me know if you would like to proceed or if you have any questions. Sorry again for any trouble this may have caused and I hope this helps!
