I bought one of these a while ago when it was £6.99, it's a very nice mat. I might get another, had mine for over a year and it's still looking and performing good.

Heat for price. Serious Question though. I currently use a G502 mouse straight on the desk and it feels perfect in terms of response. Whats the benefit of a mouse mat?

Esports era, all Marketing gimmicks, just like mechanical keyboards that they sell for £60+.

There are people who do notice a difference, and there are those who can't. Ignorance is bliss.

These pads are also quite excellent for precision selection in graphic suites.

I have the bigger version of this and it isnt as good as people are making it out to be. For one, there is no protective edging to it so it starts to fray after a period of time. Also its very prone to picking up dirt and cleaning it can be quite hard.

Not a gimmick, there's a tangible benefit of mechanical over membrane. Plus, it's so much nicer to type on a mechanical keyboard. And they last much longer than membrane. Not a gimmick, you're just ignorant.

I disagree, sure it picks up dirt but if you clean it once a week it's not really an issue. The edging could be improved but its cheap, what do you expect? I've had mine over a year and it's still like new. When you have mice or cables with protective covering (mesh) this hooks on to the edge which makes what you describe worse.

It's £4.99 I paid more you can't expect the world at this price.

So apart from lasting longer, your point is that it's nicer to type on - it costs 10x the price of a normal keyboard, but I'm the ignorant one.

Like I said marketing gimmick, which works because humans always want the the best stuff, they will even convince themselves at time that there is a "tangible benefit" when the reality is there is not, because both keyboards serve exactly the same purpose, but one is 10x the cost of the other.

Being nicer to type on for something that is built entirely to be typed on is kind of an important aspect, no?

Maybe if you dont do much typing, by all means, just go for the cheapest bullshit you can find, but lots of other people are willing to pay for a superior experience, especially for those of us who spend lots of time on a keyboard.

Also, they certainly dont all cost 10x the cost of a normal keyboard. I got mine for £60 and it's excellent(CM Quick Fire TK Stealth w/Brown switches) and a vast improvement over a membrane keyboard to use.

As for mouse mats, there are definitely differences between them. Again, maybe you dont care - that's fine. But some people do. And these Perixx mats are quite good without costing any sort of significant premium.

I'm not sure why some people have such a hard time understanding that other people have different preferences and priorities than themselves?

You might be right, I like my mechanical keyboard but it was expensive. It's nice to have the backlit keys though haha.

They're basically a gimmick with 10x noiser keys. Absolutely terrible if you do any sort of work that involves calls, or if you are within close proximity of coworkers or family. I would much rather a high quality membrane keyboard. "Lasts longer" - I'd rather have a keyboard that is cheaper and may not last as long. At least I can replace it for cheap. If you get a long lasting keyboard, you'll get all that dust accumulation over the years

save yourselves the money (and noise) and get a nice good quality scissor switch membrane

I have it, its terrible. The side if peeling off hard. Pony up for steelseries instead.
