Default Steelpad QcK+

If you like to live large, then maybe you feel the same way about the size of your mousepad. The Steelpad QcK+ is no wimpy looking mousepad. Get ready to clear off your kitchen table for this one..

Read the review here and discuss it here!

That's huge!! That's about all I can say. It looks good but man is it expensive on real estate. I actually think that's about the size of my monitor screen.

I know that mousepads do make a difference, but personally I like a small pad. The one I have now is only 8"x10" if that. I use a fairly high movement rate; some of my friends can't stand using it. Either way, looks good and from what you say it performs just as well.

Sorry, new to the forums. Where are the image links? Where is the review?

Edit: Nevermind I see that it's up on the home page. You must have linked this forum in the review. Might be a good idea to put a link back to the review from the forum posts.

Your absolutely right. I'll start doing that from now on. No idea why I stopped doing that actually.

Nice review. Looks like a nice pad, but I think I'll use something a little smaller. That's a lot of realestate there. The thing is larger than my wife's laptop and she's got a big laptop.

I use a large pad myself. Makes it easier to barrel role an apache in game. I don't think mine is that large...wife says it is, but wives are suppose to say things like that.

Hah! I haven't even been married and I've heard that one enough times.

You got that right.

Now back to the review. It seems that it would be a bit much for most. I'm surprised at the 10/10 rating. I would think more in the 9 area just because it's size limits the number of people who'd want to buy it. It would seem to me that the pad would take up way too much desk space for most. I have a pretty large desk (I think I posted a pic somewere in these forums) but my pad goes on a pull out board and the pad I have (14x17.5) covers it completely.
