I am in need of a gaming mouse mat!! I currently have a Razer Kabuto http://store.razerzone.com/store/raz...oryId.35208900
This thing has been awesome to me, it's thin, soft, black. Love it! The bad thing is that it's black and hard to clean! It also, being so soft and flexible, has this weird ability to fold up where my wrist sits. Which is annoying!
The bad thing is this, my keyboard takes up 19 inches of my 24-25 inch keyboard tray.
Basically I need a mouse mat that will fit under my keyboard without causing my keyboard to rise up on one side. Also, must not be white. Or easily paintable so I can pain that shit black and have NO issues with my mouse. Really just don't tell me about white ones if they don't come in black.
Love you! Hope this isn't meant for computer build help.. It's not really computer build, its computer accessory!! Sorry if it is Mod, you know I love you big time.
Maybe a Steelseries QcK series mousepad? It's kind of big though and my current desk had a really short keyboard tray and part of the mat went under the keyboard, which was fine because it was so thin, there wasn't a uneven rise. Soon after, I got annoyed with barely any movement space for my mouse and put my keyboard/mouse on top of my desk, not even using the tray anymore. By doing that, I bought a Razer Goliathus, the largest one...it's something like 36 inches in length so my keyboard and mouse are both on top of the mat. It's thicker too and the edges are made so it won't fray.
Put some black poster board paper on your desk, it's actually a great mousing surface.
If you want it as flat and cheap as possible, this is the solution. Tape the edges to the desk and you're good to go.
As for real mouse mats:
I for myself use the Roccat Taito (only decent product from that brand i have encountered yet). It is sturdy and doesn't move around on its own. The only downside for you would be, that it is thick: The thinner version is 3mm and it even is available in 5mm. But depending on your keyboard, the 3mm should be thin enough not raise it.
Why do something simple, when there is a complicated way?
