Everglide fuZe mousepad review

The 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.


Specifications:
  • Speed: The mouse glides extraordinarily fast and frictionless due to its hard plastic surface - an essential advantage especially for gamers!
  • Precision: At the same time the slightly abraded surface admits enough drag to avoid bucking or delayed cursor reaction - precise working is guaranteed also with ball mice.
  • Freedom Of Movement: Especially the Attack and Giganta Pads are spacious enough even for sweeping movements with the mouse.
  • Design: For any demand and situation, the various shapes of EverGlide pads offer an optimal solution: you can choose between four different shapes fitting individual taste and scope. You may also choose between three neutral colors, and a variety of logos on the black pads!
  • Convenience: The flattened rim and the cut-out at the bottom of the pad allow maximum comfort.
  • Resistance: Manufactured from polyethylene, the pads are very robust, durable, and easy to clean: stains can be washed away under running water or wiped off with a moist cloth. And yet another advantage: compared to textile pads the mouse stays clean much longer on EverGlide pads!


    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.


    Conclusion
    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
    - Durable
    - 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)


    The Everglide fuZe mousepad gets 8/10!
