Everglide fuZe mousepad reviewThe subject of today's review is the Everglide fuZe mousepad. It's one of those mousepads built with gamers in mind, but I must admit that I prefer these 'gaming mousepads' above the regular textile mousepads that you used to get for free. I have already tested dozens of hard plastic gaming mousepads, and I like them because they offer good tracking, and also because they don't wear out as quickly as the textile ones. Now, let's take a closer look at the EverGlide fuZe.
The mousepad - closer look
The Everglide fuZe is made out of plastic, polyethylene to be more precise. It's available in a few different flavors, you can see them all here. The one I got is the Charcoal version.
The fuZe mousepads measure 29.60 cm x 24.70 cm and are 0.4cm thick. Their surface is a bit grainy, so providing a good tracking for optical mouses.
In the left corner is a logo from Everglide, and in the middle a rounded ergonomic cutout for your wrist. The backside of the pad exists out of foam that prevents slipping.
Like any other plastic mousepad they are easy to clean when they are dirty.
I have tested the Everglide fuZe with a Logitech MX700 mouse and my conclusions are that it provides a good slick surface combined with good tracking. (Note: Indiweb's website states that this mousepad might not work well with some optical mice).
The price from Indiweb is 19.95EUR, without shipping costs.
The good stuff:
- Good tracking
- Easy to clean
The bad stuff/things that could be better:
- A smaller logo in the corner of the mousepad would be better than the current rather big logo. (personal opinion)
