I don't use mousepads but the 2nd choice looks good.

I have the Stealseries 9HD and i find it a great mousepad.

It is very tough and hard wearing.
it has a reflective surface for maximum optical or laser pickup.
and for me its just the right size, not too small or overly large.
It's also very thin and not spongy feeling at all.

I Highly recomend.

I always used XTracpads, but my friends did have a Stealseries 9HD and he was happy, so get what you like.

Steelseries 9HD is amazing. I have it and it is my favorite. virtually indestructible too.

i'd stay away from the oversized and ugly cloth pad.

I have a Qck+ and it's probably the best mouse pad I've ever used, I find that the larger the better when gaming so I don't run off the pad by accident

Thanks guys

So what i`ve heard about laser mouses like my G9X goes better with hard surfaces is not a true?

It`s interesting that we have a lot of opinios here, nioce to hear all of then

I`ll play FPS games with this G9x + the mousepad i`ll select

Thanks

It doesn't matter. It really depends on your preferences. Cloth pads have higher friction and harder to clean, but it is more comfortable and offers better mouse control. Hard pads are easier to clean, more durable, and glides a little better, but not as comfortable.

Should have added that I use a Sensei laser mouse and I've had no issues with it,I can be very accurate or wild with it and it does the job

I'm the opposite, cloth mouse pads make me cringe. I can't stand touching them or the feeling of moving the mouse over them. I only like hard pads and the smoother the better; I wish I had one made out of glass. The prices for mouse pads are insane though so I just make my own.

I have the Logitech G9x and SteelSeries NP+ which as far as I know is the same as Qck heavy but thinner. I have had it for two to three years and it is clean and I have no problems. I like the cloth and soft feel. My mouse glides smooth and the pad does not fold or ripple with mouse movement.

If you do not care about material then maybe you want to find some performance comparisons between the two mouse pads.

I throw mine into the wash like I do my clothes.
