- Pros:

 

  - Gliding:

    - Improved gliding results in better FPS experience.

 

- Cons:

 

  - Edges:

    - Sharp 90 degres edges are very uncomfartable.

    - You will feel them both while resting your hand upon them and especcially during vertical mouse movements.

    - Discomfort is increased by the fact that top of the mosue pad is made out of hard metal plate.

    - Cut of area at the bottom of the pad only means that your palm will slip off the pad more often.

    - While trying to return it back on the pad your palm, wrist and sleaves will get stuck on the sharp edges.

    - Some of the above problems could have been solved by introducing slopes at the edges.

 

  - Thicknes:

    - Mouse pad is 3mm thick which is just to much considering that 80% goes to soft bottom non slip rubber.

    - Non slip effect could have probably be made with much thinner material.

 

  - Surface:

    - Thin metal layer at the top easily deforms when something falls ont the pad leaving permanent distorsion.
