Steelpad, one of the more prominent mousing surface makers in recent years, has released a new surface meant to fill the all-round-usage market. The new S&S surface was designed with the help of several professional gaming groups to achieve the best mix of ultra-flat speed and highly textured feedback. It was also given a few extra touches to make it stand out from the crowd. Over the next few pages, we’ll be looking at the Steelpad S&S mousing surface to see how well it can handle application and gaming use in a variety of situations with a variety of different mice. Is the Steelpad S&S a good all-round choice? Read on to find out.
. . .In a market full of extravagant choices that sell themselves with bells and whistles it’s hard not to go for the flashiest thing out. Steelpad’s S&S mousing surface doesn’t have a cold cathode light around the base or a brightly colored exotic surface. What the S&S does have is a large surface that offers stop-on-a-dime precision, extreme slick response with newer mice and Teflon products, and accurate response in every situation you can throw at it. It is an exceptional product that should meet the needs of a very wide range of users and definitely worthy of a closer look. Special thanks to Steelpad for providing the S&S for review.
