Icemat 2nd Edition Mouse Pad Review

Icemat 2nd Edition Mouse Pad

The Icemat 2nd Edition mouse pad is a really cool looking mouse pad. Made entirely of glass, this mouse pad has real heft in both weight and mousing surface.

It may not be suitable for LAN parties, but it's perfect for a home PC. Its large surface area ensures that you will never run out of mousing surface while its weight prevents it from moving. In addition, because it's made from glass, this mouse pad will never warp, even after years of use!

The only complaint we have about the physical construction of the mouse pad was its base coat. It was highly susceptible to smudges and fingerprints, which are very hard to remove.

But it was nice to see that Icemat provided a pack of four Padsurfers with the package. While most users may prefer to continue using their mice's original Teflon feet, the inclusion of Padsurfers is a value-added benefit that cannot be denied.

We generally loved using the Icemat 2nd Edition. It was a real pleasure to use for general work and games. It was very easy to work the mouse over the large mousing surface and the frosted glass surface felt great on the palm. However, we found that it was not very suitable for accurate graphics work.

Therefore, you should consider if accurate graphics work is important to you. If it is, we do not recommend using this mouse pad. But if you are not going to do any kind of work that requires pixel-to-pixel accuracy, then this would be a great mouse pad to consider. It's large, roomy and has a totally flat, warp-free mousing surface. What else can you ask for?

* Our New Review System

ARP is committed to developing new ways to improve your experience with us. As part of our continuous efforts to improve the value of our reviews to you, we are implementing a new review system.

This new review system is designed to allow you to quickly receive information on the latest hardware. This new system also allows you to quickly get the gist of the review without reading through it. This can be very useful, especially in situations where you need to make a quick purchase decision.

In this new system, we start with a Product Overview whenever a company sends us a press release about their latest product. We shift through extraneous PR-talk to create a straightforward summary of the product's features as well as specifications. This allows you to quickly find out all the pertinent details about the product, without reading through official press releases.

When we receive the product for review, we will quickly take photos of it and create a Pictorial Review. The purpose of a pictorial review is to allow you, the reader, to quickly examine the product visually. It may help you make better purchase decisions, especially if you cannot wait for the full review.

After thorough testing, we will post a Comprehensive Review of the product. This adds on to the pictorial review with comprehensive test results and our final conclusion on the product.

But no matter whether you are reading a Pictorial Review or a Comprehensive Review, you can always read the summary of the review as well as examine the product's specifications right on the first page. In all our new reviews, we will maintain the first page as a Product Overview page. If the product is listed in PriceGrabber, you can also check out the lowest price online.

We hope this new review system will make your experience a lot more enjoyable and informative!
