racPads Ripper XXL (2011) Mousing Surface ReviewPosted on 2011-06-27 22:56:42 by Thomas De Maesschalck
The XTracPads Ripper XXL. Whew, what great memories does it bring back -- and how much have we been through together. From my humble beginnings of product reviewing to the glorious present of APH Networks, the transition from my residence in Edmonton to my new home in Calgary, and with every success and failure I have been through, this is one product that remained faithful on my desk since early 2006. But what made me like this mousepad so much is not necessary technological superiority, but rather its sheer ingenuity of being the right size. Of course, one could argue being the "right size" with dimensions measuring in at 914mm x 457mm is a questionable assertion at best. But who says a mousepad has to overlay only the area of what the designers think you will be using? With the XTracPads Ripper XXL covering my entire desk, not only would I not need to worry about running out of room; it practically transformed my plain white IKEA furniture into something that is both visually appealing and fundamentally comfortable. That is nice to hear. So what are we reviewing today again? Good question; thanks for asking -- it just happens to be yet another XTracPads Ripper XXL. So why would we write a review on the same product twice? Let's just say five years later, things have changed, and so has this. As for the rest of your questions, the answers are in the text.
