EVO-G Illuminated Mousepad VS QPAD XFX Collectors Edition

Introduction

Introduction

I have been sent two high end "professional" gamer mouse mats. My mission, is to investigate which of the pair was the better mouse mat for gaming and every day use. I have also included an average mat to hopefully show how much better a high-end mouse mat can be. There are certainly a lot of mouse mats around these days, lets have a look at if these can be set apart from the crowd.

 

The EVO-G Illuminated Mousepad

 

A little background infomation on this young company:

Evo-G was born in Dec 2006, it means Evolution Gaming Gear. Evo-G is all about innovative gaming gear for the market that makes more users professional. Evo-G is all about gaming gear. Our mission is to create performance-enhancing gaming products, created for and by leading professionals.

Evo-G headquarters is located in Asia (Peking, China), and host the primary office facilities for the company. The headquarters handle all planning, production and partner coordination.

 

Evo-G seem to be interested in the evolution of the mouse. If you have a browse around their website you will come across some obsurce mouse mats and mouse aids. But today we are looking at the Illuminated mousepad that they have created. This is what they say about the ilIuminated Mousepad:

 

The IMP1 is a precision mouse pad for professionnal gamers, office and home users. IMP1 captivates with its sophisticated acrylic frame incorporating built-in lightning effect. The frame is illuminated with four bright LEDs whose light intensity can be modified or switched off by a variable cable remote control.

QPAD XFX Collector's Edition

 

QPAD have had a good few mouse mats available and all have been highly regarded and won several awards, if you are not familiar with QUAD below is a snippet about them:

QPAD built its success on a grassroots commitment to the gaming community. Like you, we thrive in the madness of competition and embrace the free spirit of gaming. Our sponsorship of the Q Tour, communities, cups, tournaments, teams and LAN parties reflects this commitment. The knowledge we?ve gained has fed into our development of high quality products that have a great performance and given many a winning edge.


So we now know that QPAD are professionals when it comes to mouse mats. Hopefully the QPAD XFX CT will defend it's creators reputation. Below is what QPAD say about the CT:

 

For all users with high demands on precision, feel and functionality this is the mouse pad that delivers. CT™ series smooth Hybratek™ coating ensures that the mouse registers every detail of the smallest mouse movement. It offers a smooth and a controlled glide with an optimum level of friction. Whether you are a hardcore gamer or work with other demanding tasks such as graphic design or large spreadsheets, you’ll thrill to the task.
