Moments after placing the pad on my desk and moving my Glorious Model O mouse across the surface I knew this was going to be a difference maker in my set up. The mouse glides effortlessly with almost no resistance. The movement is so smooth I am baffled how long it took me to realize such pads existed.
It wasn't long after getting the pad that I booted up Battlefield 2042 and New World and gave it a whirl in game. The difference was immediate. Mouse movement was the most smooth I've ever had in a game. Not once did I feel like I was hitting a limit of my physical area and the times I needed to move the mouse to make larger swipes felt glorious (pun intended)!
I am about a month into gaming with the pad and while it took a week or two to get used to the ice skate smoothness I can't imagine anything else now. Even outside of games it is a game changer for productivity during work. It is just easier now to use my mouse as it floats across the surface. Sometimes you just don't know until you know!
