    So far I've had no issues with my laser mouse. But is there a One Best mouse pad that gives the laser mouse its ultimate performance? I'm talking about the type of material that further enhances its already amazing accuracy....
    If ever there is such a thing.

    That is quite true. This thing really does work on any surface.

    The Razer ExactMat is pretty good as well. It's made of anodized aluminum and has two sides--"speed" and "control". I have one and really like it. I carry it in my notebook bag but as mentioned, almost any surface is fine for a laser mouse.

    It's optical mouse that have issues with glass surfaces. Laser mouses on the other hand does really work on any surfaces...

    I personally like to use a piece of paper, you can always find one and it works good.

    I have a Razer Copperhead that I take with my notebook--and it doesn't seem to want to pick up the glass surface on one of the tables I use it on (it's a white glass surface).

    Paper???? Wow.. I have an old mouse pad that I bought for about a dollar. I'm no longer using it. If there were a way, I would give it to you....

    Hey Chrisyano, I checked out the Razer mousepad you mentioned. It really captured me. Really really fancy. But don't you think it's a little big?? It's about three-fourths the size of my laptop!!!!

    It is rather large. But it is also quite thin. If desk space is an issue, it may not be the best choice for you. But for the price, it really is a quality product.

    Seconded. I use one of those and it is amazing, plus small enough to fit just about anywhere.
    I have one of those on my desktop - fantastic quality but it is very big (that's why I don't use it with my laptop - desk is too small).

    I have a mousepad from my highschool from 7 years ago. I still pwn in CS:S though :) Chaz we should get a game going sometime, I've had some practice heheh.

    Think the optical mouse makes all the difference, as long as the surface on which it glides is smooth and not mono colored.

    That's the thing. Well, the Big sized Razer mousepad is not that all bad for me. Besides, my backpack is kinda' huge. It's a very broad pad, but it's thin. I'll give it a try.
