[Amazon.ca] 3M Precise Mouse Pad $6.99 (Add-on Item)

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B0017D5Z40/

This is a great mouse pad. It is often on sale, but just in case someone missed it.

It is an add-on item.

Very interesting that it claims to save battery power. How effective is it?

"Battery saving design extends battery life of wireless mice up to 50%" Maybe?

I bought 3 of these back in June at this price (me, wife & kid for work/school @ home). They work great, smooth and accurate. But not sure if this is "hot" though. I mean, its $7 for a like a piece of plastic, and i used a corded mouse so battery life doesn't matter much to me. if they were $ 3 or $4 at dollarama, that'd be hot. speaking of which, the back is kinda like a sticker. i bought a rubbery drawer liner and stuck it on and seems to stay put, and not collect dust and stuff.

How durable are these?

I find the greatest problem with mouse pads are the edges, tend to crack or peel, cloth pads get filthy from skin rubbing and the edges fray.

I'm still rocking a free mousepad from a job fair back in 2005, and a cloth sun microsystems one on my basement machine.

I think that is a gimmick. Maybe at best 20% for some specific mouse.

These mouse pads wear out in a couple years of heavy use. The selling point is the smoothness against a mouse. It has a floating effect to it. Making it the best in my opinion.

Love this mouse. Gonna order a few more for WFH and Virtual School.

Note, although these are re-positionable, they really are meant to be left in one place. They have the more traditional version, but not on sale. Although I think it does go down to this price sometimes.

I used this mousepad until I realized it was scratching the feet of my mouse. It does wear out over time too. Mine is “shiny” in the middle where usage is highest. I switched to the prime cables moustache felt mousepad and haven’t looked back.

I do like the fact that it’s sticky on the back so you can slap it on a laptop and bring it out to places.

I bought this a few years ago. It's not much different than using the mouse on my smooth table top without a pad. I would not buy another one.

I bought a few of the cheap Moustache brand mousepads from 123ink.ca and they have been fabulous. They are $1.99 regular price, they have a nice thin rubbery back, they are not too thin or too thik, I find them just perfect and they last a long time. The edges are all nicely sticked all around to avoid fraying. Only drawback (for some) is the logo on the corner.
Honestly, it is pretty much identical to some Corsair expensive gaming pads I had picked up for my kids.

I bought 3 of them the first time they went on sale for $0.99. Then the next time they went down to $0.99 I bought a dozen to keep them for all my machines. I have one at work, give a few to friends also.

I've had a few of these 3M (different patterns) mouse pads over the years, and they are nice when they are new, but I find they tend to get sticky on top, and eventually wear out my mouse gliders. I would have thought that the material ones would be harsher on them, but they have proved to be a lot better.

For $2 regular price, it is hard to beat.

And if you want a Super Large one (it's "nearly" a meter long) to put your keyboard and everything on it, you can get one for $11.49 (regular price).

I've been using this surface for the past 6 months, and I like it. It's in a fixed spot on my desk. I used to use nothing, and I like the movement action on the 3M vs my bare desk (YMMV). For $7, it's a decent stocking stuffer.
