    I currently use the Razer Goliathus and I decided to purchase the Steel Series 9HD because the Razer had too much friction. Its more of a cloth material rather than a smooth surface. When I started using the SS 9HD, the surface is way too smooth. It feels like I’m gliding over nothing, no friction at all. So its harder to control for good aiming, but moves and turns much faster. I play Counter-Strike Source, so I prefer aim over movement. But the SS 9HD is a good mouse pad overall, just not for me though. It would require you to lower your sensitivity if you choose to use the 9HD. Unless you’re already using something like metal pad or something.

    I’m an avid gamer and have been gaming for a while. I play both FPS and RTS (BF3, SC2 and LOL just to name a few) I purchased the Steelseries Sensei mouse and on the website, it stated that the HD series mousepads were recommended and ” specifically designed for Laser mouse.” So I got the 9HD together with the Sensei mouse.

    I’ve been using the Rocketfish gaming mousepad with the Logitech G5 for as long as I can remember and they have served me well.

    But the 9HD is a lot better than the Rocketfish imho. The Rocketfish has 2 sides, 1 smooth for speed and one with more texture for control. Before, I would alternate between both sides, but more recently, I’ve stuck to using the smooth “textureless” side. The strange yet awesome part about the 9HD is that it has the “textures” yet it’s super smooth. And yes, I’ve tested it with the G5 just to make sure it isn’t because I’m using a new mouse. Of course, it might be due to the fact that my Rocketfish mouse pad might be getting a bit old, but I personally can’t find anything that might cause performance issues on the Rocketfish other than the rubber grips on the corners.
    So with the 9HD, I can move across the mousepad easier and with more comfort without any friction.

    For $30+, I think it was well worth the investment. I’m loving the Steelseries 9HD.

    Pros:
    - Textured for control yet allows for super smooth mouse glide.

    Cons:
    - *A bit smaller than what I was hoping for.
    *Not enough to demote a star, but it is ever so slightly smaller than the Rocketfish mousepad, which was a bit surprising.

    This mouse mat feels great, has good fiction and sticks to the desk well, and has a huge play surface. What it does not do is track my RAT7 or Razer DeathAdder/Naga movements properly. The surface has a non-uniform texture, a bit like sandpaper, which my mice are having a hard time with when I make small movements. It is also rather reflective, which I have found is never good. Considering this is a rather expensive mouse pad, I am extremely disappointed I have had such a terrible experience with it.

    TLDR- This mat is completely unusable for any sort of gaming, let alone “professional” level play. Perhaps they meant professional in the sense that I could take it to my office to answer Emails and click through spreadsheets?

    To be fair, I am currently using a SteelSeries Cloth mat, cheaper, better, no hype or over-marketing… it just works perfectly.
