    I have a Logitech G5 mouse and I'm looking to treat myself to a gaming mouse mat. Any advice on what you have or what you think is best or worst + any links to review sites please let me know. Thankyou

    Personally i have never found a shop bought mousemat that was any good for gaming, there always TOO small. I use a piece of dense foam which is about 5mm thick and cut to 18 inches high by 22 inches wide. I bought it from a craft shop, and found that the extra area is perfect, saving on the need to keep lifting the mouse and moving it back. Especially when using the mouse to "look". Sometimes "size" does matter!

    Agreed, I wouldnt buy a mat. Most of them are too smal for any decent movement, and are ful of gimmicky bits n pieces. I was lucky enough to get a sheet of aluminium about 3 foot square that I got cut down and use that. A bit of steel wool rubbeb lightly over the surface gives a lovely surface for an optical mouse, without scratching to the extent its bad to move. Also has the advantages that a water spill doesnt kill it, and it doesnt have soft spots :)
