Today when computer mice are getting more advance in design and performance, offering high-tech laser sensors with very high DPI tracking resolutions, there is increasing need of a mouse pad that can ensures an overall stable work/gaming surface especially in todays gaming scenario where gamers want a mouse surface that would provide comfort and exceptional tracking with precise mouse movement.

Basically mouse pads are categorized in two type, hard surface and soft surface type. Hard surface is made of some hard material like plastic, offering a static gap between mouse sensor and the surface, and according to many users provides a superior mouse tracking and movement. Where as a soft surface type mouse pads are made from cloth or some polymer surface with soft rubber base, and again according to many other users the textured surface offers accuracy and responsiveness.

Choosing a right type of mouse pad is one’s personal preference according to his or her comfort and appreciation.

Today we are reviewing a cloth mouse pad from BenQ, the BenQ ZOWIE G-SR-SE Mouse Pad (RED) for e-Sports.

SR-SE was designed for gamers that enjoy the comfort of a rubber base in a cloth mousepad. The unique soft rubber base is 100% flat. It provides comfort while maintaining a consistent glide across the mousepad.

Now let’s see what BenQ ZOWIE G-SR-SE Mouse Pad has for us.

Features

  • Smooth and even texture offers a consistent glide throughout; a different feel from the G-SR
  • Rubber base offers increased stability on any surface
  • 100% compatible with all types of mice
  • Dimension: 470 x 390 mm ± 10 mm/ 18.5 x 15.3 inches ± 0.4 inch

Specifications

Package

The mousepad comes in a long black colored cardboard box with a round window giving a sneak peak of actual product. Back of box have product info and barcode sticker.

Inside the box

Box only includes rolled up mousepad.

Looks

BenQ ZOWIE G-SR-SE mousepad is huge with 18.5 x 15.3 inches in size. Top is having a red cloth with graphics along with printer BenQ and Zowie logo on two corners.

A closer look reviles the tight cloth texture.

Base is made from some soft rubber offering great grip on to the table surface .

BenQ also provided me the older blue version of the ZOWIE G-SR-SE mousepad. On my personal comparison I found no difference between the new Red and the old Blue mousepads beside the cloth coloure and graphics.

I have used many mouse pads, but I personally like hard surface mouse pad; reasons are, first the hard surface gives me a least resistance mouse movement and second it is very easy to clean a hard surface. A weekly wipe with Isopropyl keep mousepad free from dust and deposits, leaving the surface good for hygiene. Whereas cleaning a cloth base mouse pad is a different challenge altogether especially if you have concerns about hygiene.

Now using BenQ ZOWIE G-SR-SE mousepad was a nice experience. A huge surface area to move your mouse around is great fun. Initially it felt like I have to apply little more force for good mouse movement on cloth surface than the hard surface. But after removing some weights from the mouse resulted in a comfortable mouse movement.

Pros

  • Big Size
  • Nice Red colour with graphics
  • Rubber base gives great table grip
  • Soft cloth surface
  • Soft pad offers more wrist/hand comfort

Cons

  • Resistive mouse movement with heavy mouse
  • Requires more cleaning than hard surface mouse pads

Conclusion

Working on the BenQ ZOWIE G-SR-SE mousepad was all together a great and comfortable experience. The huge mousepad surface area for long mouse movement was very nice and will gives a great experience during fast in-game movement.

Again at conclusion, choosing a mouse pad is totally a personal preference. Whether you go for soft or hard surface, after use only one can decide which is best for him. But BenQ ZOWIE G-SR-SE Mouse Pad with its size and cloth texture will definably makes your PC desk all the more attactive and gaming experience more enjoyable.
