Possibly problematic for braided mouse cords
on June 28, 2017
I like the size and I like the surfaces. Mouse glide feels great, except at times when the cord snags on the edge, which requires some clarification. The metal edges are somewhat sharp, though not enough to cause harm to humans. I found quickly that it can harm my mouse, however. Along with my new Corsair MM600 pad I opened up a brand new Logitech G600 mouse that I've been keeping in its packaging as a backup, deciding it was time to finally retire my old, worn-out one. Upon use, I discovered that the braided cord often caught very gently on the edge of the pad when moved in certain ways, just enough to make a scraping sound, cause my mouse movement to feel slightly awkward, and to start fraying the cord of the brand new mouse. I flipped the mouse pad around every which way to see if it was just one particular problematic edge, but every side was the same. I'm currently looking into DIY mouse bungees to keep the cord off the pad entirely to solve this problem that really shouldn't exist. Rounded edges just seems like common sense for hard mouse pads. Maybe I'll try sanding it down, myself.
