Mionix Sargas 900 Deskpad

Mionix Sargas 900

Introduction

The Mionix Sargas 900 Deskpad is a mousepad for your whole desk. As I slid it out of the massive box and unrolled it across my photography table, I realised it was the largest thing I’ve ever photographed for a review – wider than a PC tower, wider than my widest mechanical keyboard and in fact, much larger than my photography table. Join me as we have take a wide-angle look at this innovatively massive mousepad.

Model Overview

Sargas 900 is made of a durable cloth material with slightly more friction than coated mousepads. The special microfiber surface counteracts data loss and improves the sensor tracking performance. The underside is made of a natural rubber offering a firm grip irrespective of the suface under the mousepad or extensive movements. The Sargas 900 was designed with our Surface Quality Analyzer tool (8/10) and has excellent tracking with minimal data loss.

Unboxing

The Mionix Sargas 900 (or as I’ll call it, the Deskpad) comes in a long rectangular prism of a box – like a normal flexible mousepad, but much larger. The box is black, with a green Mionix logo and a picture of the mouspad. Minimal and professional, with that traditional gamer vibe.

Turning over the prism, we see the mousepad’s ‘technical specifications’ as listed earlier, as well as a model overview and an explanation of the name Sargas – which is a star in the constellation Scorpius.

And turning once again, we see the standard list of features in multiple languages – I count 8 here.

Opening the box, we can take out the plastic-wrapped and rolled up Deskpad. As you can see next to this Mionix mouse, its height is about the same size or larger than a normal mousepad’s width. Holy cow.
