Everglide Attack Pad
Page 1 - Does it live up to all the hype?
First of all, I would like to throw a huge thank you to Everglide
for supplying me with the pad so I could do this review.
After a period of skepticism, I decided I would give this hyped up mouse pad a try. I contacted
Everglide and they were more than happy to supply one for
reviewing purposes. After I pulled it out of the mailing package, I was first amazed at the
oh-so-smooth texture, despite the microgroves in the pad. I then set it in it's little cramped
space (I have a small desk). I decided I should clean it first, in order to determine how clean
the pad kept the mouse. So I spent a good 5-7 minutes cleaning my Logitech MouseMan Wheel (3
button & a wheel).
Time do to testing! Testing a mouse pad is the best and most fun of all computer parts. Why?
Games! I decided to play some Half Life. To make a long story short, I suck at Half Life
and didn't do a whole lot better. Although, I might point out that my crossbow aiming was
Quake 3 Test was my next "benchmark." It might be that I was used to the pad now,
or whatever, but I was SMOKING! I was taking first and second every server I jumped on.
The pad doesn't help much in long range rocket fests, but it effects close combat, a lot!
If you're familiar with the move where you jump over your opponent, rotate 180º
and put a rocket in his rectum, this pad will help an unbelievable amount in it's execution.
In conclusion, I would just like to point out the pad I used was the "Large Attack Pad
(Black)" and costs $18.95. The white Attack Pad is $2 less and looks just as cool (to
me at least). Is the pad worth $19 + shipping charges, YES! You might be thinking, "I'm
not a gamer." I would still recommend this pad, especially if you make graphics. It's
great even for surfing the web. The accuracy of the pad, if you want to call it that (it should
be a called a blessing from God), is amazing. Oh, by the way, the mouse kept very clean compared
to my regular mouse pad!
