This brings me to the next question actually.

Mousemat - yes/no?

I use this, I find it really ties the room together.

When I first moved to Edinburgh I went into Lebowski's (a bar) with work colleagues. The bar shows the film on a telly on loop.

The following week we ended up there again and I said to a table full of partners of the firm "This film was on in that bar we went to last week too. Is it a famous Scottish film or something?"

Two years later I still think about it.

Anyway fuck your mousemat. :x

For real though, you deserve that shame for not knowing the movie. -_-

My mousemat is a cheap, functional Steelseries cloth mat. It does't tie the room together, but it feels much nicer than using the mouse on the desk and is quieter too.

Same, although it's used as a tea coaster, remote control dock and god knows what else, bar a 6" square for the mouse....really need to get it cleaned, but yeah, great mouse surface.

I bought this mouse mat for one specific reason...

...all the reviews were complaining that there were multitudes of typos and errors. Couldn’t wait. It came and I got the revised version that fixed them all.

I am particularly miffed that I’ll never own a mouse mat with “The Former Soviet Onion” and “The Gay Of Bengal”.
I used to be eVoL but I got better.
I like everything now.

I had one of those giant desk-spanning mouse mats once, just a plain black one, but it got so dirty eventually and I couldn't work out a way to clean the thing properly. I like to think I'm a fairly hygienic person, but eventually a patch appeared where my wrist normally rested and nothing I did could shift it.

I currently use one of those ridiculous RGB mouse mats from Corsair.

Thanks but unfortunately I'm running Windows 10 and according to that listing that seems to only be supported up to Windows 8.

I have both the G502 and G903 and they both are great for gaming and general use. G903 takes ages to run the battery down and that's with heavy use. Any large mat from Amazon works great, got the same as eVoL as well as gaming releated ones to swap to when washing the other from spilled coffee etc

I think it'll be the G502. I don't want to wade in to the wired/wireless debate but I don't really see the benefit of a wireless mouse.

It's tidier looking, and you can leave things at the back of your desk without them getting in the way of the cord.

The benefit to me*

I understand the general benefits of less wires. :lol:

My desk is the entire side of a room so that sort of thing isn't a problem.
