CoolerMaster Aluminium Mouse Pad AMP-U01 review

Today we'll take a closer look at the Aluminium Mouse pad AMP-U01 from Cooler Master.

Cooler Master was founded with the mission of providing the industry's best thermal solutions. Since its establishment a decade ago, the company has remained faithful to this mission, emerging as a world leader in products and services for companies dealing with devices where heat issues must be resolved.

The Mouse pad
The world's first aluminium Mouse pad is from Cooler Master. It's made for celebrating their 10th anniversary. The Mouse pad is a real collector's choice, only 5000 Mouse pads are made! But unfortunately some optical mice's might not be suitable with this pad. Also note that the Mouse pad is best matched with an alloy case.

When we first took a look at the Mouse pad it seems very nice. Great design and it fits really nice with your desk. At the bottom a nice Cooler Master 10th year anniversary logo and at the top a little Cooler Master logo.

Most people think that an Aluminium Mouse pad makes a lot of noise. It's true that they make more noise than a normal Mouse pad, but it's not much more. It also feels cold, so that's a good point in summer, but bad in winter. Another good point is that the corners are nicely rounded and this makes the design complete. The feet of the Mouse pad are also excellent and the Mouse pad does not slip at all. A negative point is that the Mouse pad is a bit too small, a few centimeters larger would be better

The packet is also nice, with a clear warning that the Mouse pad is best matched with any alloy chassis users. The colour of the packaging is black with green lines.

The Aluminium Mouse pad from Cooler Master has a great design. It's made for the 10th anniversary of Cooler Master and only 5000 pads were made, so that makes it a real collector's item of Cooler Master fans. It does only fit with ball mice, so don't try it out with your optical mouse. Maybe some will work but most will give a bad tracking on this pad. The pad makes more noise than an ordinary mouse pad, but you can live with it. It's also a bit too small, but as I said, the excellent design makes the Mouse pad a thing to have!

- Excellent design
- Collectors item
- Great feet's, no slipping!
- Aluminium

- Only for ball mice's
- Too small

The Aluminium Mouse pad is a real collector's item from Coolermaster and it deserves a 9/10 from Dvhardware!

this isn't the worlds first aluminum mouse pad. I have one from an old drafting mouse, plus it works with optical mice since it has a grid on the top side.
