In general, mouse pads are very hard to choose. The surface you prefer is very different from the guy sat next to you, and often the worlds greatest pad can be loved by one and hated by another. Today I have the Rantopad Super C4.
Hard or cloth, it’s a problem that faces gamers looking for a new mouse pad. Fortunately, there are some manaufacturers that give you the best of both worlds. Rantopads is one of them, with their Rantopad P4 they aim to please both camps.
Rantopads aren’t particularly well-known, in fact this is my first insight into their products. Offering several types for different gamer’s tastes, there is sure to be one that suits your playing style. Today I have the Rantopad Mammoth; a hard plastic pad.
We’ve reviewed pretty much the entire SteelSeries line of headsets, and the In:Ears of their subsidiary; Icemat. However, today I have the full Siberia headset which was brought to relative fame by Basshunter with his DOTA ditty. Let’s see if they are ready to be endorsed by XSReviews as well…
Razer have transformed the gaming mouse market with their several successive mice; each building on the plus points of the last. With speaker systems and headsets; the keyboard was only a matter of time. Today I have the Razer Tarantula which is Razer’s first attempt (bar the Microsoft Reclusa).
Recently we tested the Ratpadz XT model, and it unfortunately received one of the lowest marks this site has ever given. Hopefully Ratpadz other model, the GS, will get a much better reception.
In the performance market, numbers mean everything. From MHZ to megabyte, the industry revolves around extremes. Today I have the Saitek GM3200 gamers mouse which promises the fairly unnecessary DPI of 3200. Will this be enough?
Hard OCP are well known in the review industry for their popular website, and now they are trying to get into the mouse pad sector with their Ratpadz range. Today I have their XT model which promises a slick surface and a large gaming area.EDIT: Obviously Ratpadz have been around for years, the introduction was poorly worded apologies to anyone misled.
Like most manufactures, SteelPad don’t always release brand new products, only build on past success. The QcK heavy is no difference; it’s the same slick surface found on the QcK which received a 9/10 back in 2006, but has extra thickness for LAN party enthusiasts.
SteelSeries concentrate on creating the best peripherals with the gamer in mind. We’ve tested many of their products, including their entire range of headsets, but today I have their SteelPad S&S touted as ‘probably the best hard plastic gaming surface in the world’. Lets see…
