The World of Warcraft "Ancient Enemies" FragMat Mousepad review


Let me start by quoting the marketing materials:

"The World Of Warcraft® Ancient Enemies FragMat Gaming Mouse Pad from Ideazon provides your mouse with a smooth surface ensuring precise and accurate control. It is made of high quality materials for both laser and optical gaming mice and provides you with high gaming performance. With Non slip under-padding, slim profile of 0.07-inches and a excellent gliding surface, this Mouse Pad is the ideal surface for your mouse."

Like hell it is...

Don't get me wrong, as far as the graphics go, it's beautiful but you'll get better performance out of framing it and hanging it on your wall.

Some good points first:
1. it's pretty
2. it's slick, so you don't get dirt and crumbs and junk built up on it.
3. it doesn't slide around much, depending on the surface you put it on.

The problem:
1. I can't speak for laser mice, but the various optical mice I tried perform horribly on this mouse pad. My cursor constantly jumps all over the place with this mat.
2. It's pretty expensive. I've seen prices ranging from $18 - $22 for this mat.

So basically, I bought it because it's WoW. I like looking at it, but it kinda sucks as a mousepad, especially for the price. Posted on Thursday, December 20, 2007 11:20 AM General Interest , Reviews | Back to top

Do not buy any mousepad from fragmat, they said its designed for gaming and increase optical /laser mouse performance but this kind mouse pad isn't!

I've had mine for about 2 years, and the only bad thing about it, is that my cat ended up bending the corner with in the first couple of month that I had it, which left a permanent crease in it., but oh well, I don't use that corner much

I have to disagree... I am a pretty hardcore WoW gamer using the Logitech G5 laser mouse. The pads perform great for about 6-7 months... That is how long my mousepad lasted until I wore it down with usage. Now I am looking for a new one.
