ROCCAT Siru

The ROCCAT Siru is one of the better mousepads I have ever used. It is the perfect size for me and is nearly non existent in terms of how thin it is. This thing is less than 1mm thick, meaning if you were to look at your desk from the side, you probably wouldn’t even see it. The reason the thickness (or lack thereof) is so important is that it gives direct feedback from the surface below it. Your mouse stays on the same level as the rest of your desktop.

My biggest pet peeve with my previous mousepads was that they never stayed still. As much as I use my mouse, It is a huge nuisance to have to adjust my mousepad every 30 minutes. That is not a problem at all with the Siru. It has a nonslip backing, and stays exactly where you put it, unless you purposely move it. The nonslip backing is also nonstick. I’m not sure how they did it, but ROCCAT’s nonslip backing does not appear to be an adhesive. I’ve moved it from desk to desk several times, and it never leaves residue or has any problem re-sticking to another surface.

The top surface of the Siru is something else. I’ve never had a mouse glide so smoothly over a surface. I tested several products on it, from the ROCCAT Savu, to my Logitech G300, all the way to a stock HP mouse, and they all seemed to be almost floating across the Siru.

If you are going to use a mousepad to game, and you really should, I would highly recommend the Siru.
