Mouse mats and other peripherals fall into an interesting category for testing, as your opinion on them tends to be very personal, as the mat, mouse or keyboard has to be right for you, beyond having the specifications to do what you want with it. Therefore these reviews can be highly subjective so as always, please make sure to test a peripheral for yourself before you buy it.

However with that said, our testing methods involve using the mat over prolonged gaming and general usage periods to test it’s gaming ability and comfort.

The games used for testing were as follows:

  • Unreal Tournament 3
  • Multiple browser games

I used several mice to test the Overslide: The Ideazon Reaper, the Cyber Snipa Stinger, and the Nova Slider X.
