Well first I'd like to thank Markus from Compad
for supplying us with all of the Speed Pads
Well do you remember the old days?
Mouses with balls that you'd needed to clean every now and then...
The mousepads those days where mostly clothed, and this caused the ball to pick up a lot of dirt.
But then there came some improvement in the form of optical mouses , I've buyed one a few years ago, the Microsoft IntelliMouse Optical and I was (and I still am) very happy with it.
No more cleaning every week , beter gliding and one of the most important things, much more accurate.
Most manufactors claimed that you could perfectly use an optical mouse without a mousepad. But was that true? Well yeah , but working with a pad under your mouse is always much more comfortable.
First I thought that there wasn't much difference between mousepads, but after using a few I noticed that there were huge differences.
Like today , by reviewing the Compad Speed-Pad, a high-end mousepad from the Freiburg (Germany) based firm Compad,
They send me one sample of each of their Speed-Pads : a standard darkgrey one , a transparant , a green , a yellow and a blue one.
