Guys I’m looking for a mousepad that is easy to clean. My last one got filthy so I threw it out.
Get a hard mousepad (ie the QCK Hard)
My l1 mousepad is easily cleaned. The edges are sewn so it doesnt separate and fray like others might.
Well I replaced my old and tired one with the very nice one from GN
It is an ultra wide design so it doubles for both the KB and the MOUSE.
Hard mouse pad is nice. I got the one from EVGA and and cleans up easily.
Just use plates for eating instead. Like normal people.
Mousepads simply won’t live forever.
Except the cheating ones.
Level 1 Techs. They got some really cool ones.
I do, but between the finger food and dust it just gets dirty over time. I had that Mose pad for 3 years and never cleaned it. The corner started rolling up for some reason. It was a cheapy though.
My question about hard mouse pads would be would it feel different then my desks surface? I feel a tiny bit of resistance with just using the desk. If I do go cloth again what’s the best way to clean it?
would depend on the desk. I’ve got a cheap IKEA like desk and you can tell a difference with the hard mouse pad, has less resistance
I don’t know… a well made full desk mat on amazon is like 25,- bucks or so. If you really need a new one every two years I would still go that route instead of using a hard mat. Just don’t like the feel.
Full desk ones are not really what I’m looking at. I have the Fredde desk from Ikea. And based on the shape of the front I don’t think a full one would work.
I just bought a full desk mat, (QCK Edge). My previous 6$ generic full desk mat feels similarish enough but thicker.
I think I overpaid on this one.
Well I guess my suggestion would be to buy one you like then when needed follow this video [How to Clean A Cloth Mouse Pad NOT RGB] . (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBylHzreYEY)
good ol’ zy
I heard a long time ago hardpads either wore out your mouse feet or don’t track very well on some mice. Maybe they have improved it since then? I am not super sure, industry seems to be moving towards fabric pads or rgb pads
Both are true. some people like the hard mouse pad due less friction and maintenance. but that would be the trade off.
Thoughts? I was also looking at their hard mouse pads, but not sure if I want to spend more than $20. I prefer Amazon as I have a prime membership.
Again, i just bought one yesterday (the XL version). A cheaper/generic one would probably serve you equally. The only bad experience I remember was that a cheap one would take a few days readjusting to a flat surface after being kept rolled for so long. Other than that, the mat surface feels similar enough.
good quality ones just throw in the washing machine
Yeah, I bought a cheapo desk mat with stitched edges for 13,- Euros years ago. They are pretty much all the same, really.
