Today I am reviewing the fourth part of Sandberg’s recently launched EsportsEquipment range, the Gamer Desk Pad XXXL. A large mouse mat designed with precision gaming in mind.

Design:

At 90X45cm this is one rather large mouse mat, not the largest, but still pretty big and far bigger than any other I have used, so big in fact that I used the large box this came in, to store one slightly smaller mat and a normal sized mat that I no longer have any use for. I currently have one keyboard and two mice sitting on this desk, I use an ergonomically friendly wireless mouse for normal browsing and the other mouse is a mouse I am in the process of reviewing. It’s black in colour and has a textured bottom to ensure it grips the surface well. A rather large Sandberg EsportsEquipment sits in the bottom left-hand corner and in all honesty if this weren’t there the mat would pretty much just a 100% boring to look at black plain mat. So I actually believe the logo is pretty much a major part of this design. I must admit I do wish it had a bit more to its overall design like a pattern or a different coloured edge instead of just the whole thing in black.

I also found that to make this mat fit properly one my desk, I had to remove my glass shelf as one of the legs was obstructing the mat, so I had two choices, either remove the shelf or have the mat overlapping the edge of the desk, I did try to have it overlapping but it got on my nerves, so I removed the shelf and now I have a large mouse mat properly sat on my desk. I have also have found that I have had to have things such as my monitor resting on the top lip and a few portable disc drives, but in all honesty, this is no major problem as there is just so much space here.

Do I regret having to lose my shelf in favour of the Gamer Desk Pad XXXL? The answer is No, in fact, I love this thing it makes my desk look so much neater and because it so much softer it’s a lot more comfortable for my elbows which usually end up resting against the hard surface of my desk.  One thing I have noticed is that it does get dirty rather easily, which is a bit of a pain, but can be washed off when need be.

In use:

The main focus of this mouse mat is to provide as much precision as possible and I must say it’s great for providing precision, I don’t do a lot of PC gaming nowadays due to other commitments, but I still decided to give this a quick go on a game of COD. I found that no matter which mouse I used with it, it allowed the mouse to just glide easily with no rough patches, which allowed for perfect in game precision of the pointer. I also find it to be nice and soft to touch, which as I mentioned above makes it great for having my elbows rested on as I type.

Overall:

A great gaming pad with a serious size. It provides brilliant precision and has a level of comfort I haven’t felt in any other mouse mat before. It truly is a blessing to my desk and has definitely earned the title as the best mouse mat I have ever used. Of course, I should be calling it by its official name as a mouse mat typically just holds a mouse, whereas this beauty is currently holding most of the contents of my PC desk with space left over.
