Neowin Member Reviews: Razer Ironclad

It's that time of the week again, where we showcase a review submitted by a member on our forums. Remember that we consider all reviews that are submitted here. Who knows, your review might make the front page next week!

This week we share a review from +jamesyfx new Razor Ironclad mouse mat.

Hey guys, this is a review of a mouse mat. But it’s a special one - it’s a Razer Ironclad. It’s the most expensive and most high-tech mouse mat that they do and it falls under their ‘Elite’ category of products. What it basically is is a single sheet of extra smooth anodized aluminum, just like what modern Mac computers are constructed from. It feels extremely smooth indeed, even slightly cold to the touch. It’s also much larger than most mouse mats with approximate size at 320mm (L) x 270mm (W) x 2.5mm (H).

Naturally the mouse mat is extremely sturdy and has a bit of weight so it, but it’s not heavy by any means.

Underneath it has a non-slip rubber mat - these kinds of mats are really good for attaching things to surfaces with no adhesive, such as keeping your phone from sliding around the dashboard in your car so it’s definitely put to good use here.

It comes with some fantastic packaging as you’d expect from Razer. Upon opening the outside box you have to pull on a tab to lift the main packaging from the depths of it’s bright green home, and then lift out. It actually looks almost like a laptop in there - maybe Razer should design a laptop chassis for another manufacturer (or have they already?). And of course you get the obligatory Razer stickers, a certificate of authenticity from ‘Razerguy’ and their catalog.

I didn't realize people still used mats

Yup. Some of us have high-gloss desks that drive LED's crazy.. never mind that it just seems to make the mouse glide smoother, gives me a bit more precision, and a bit of comfort on the wrist. I however just tend to go for the $0.99 special.. $60 is a little crazy for a mouse pad.
