    Curious on others opinions and thoughts of mouse surfaces that are good for a pc gamer. Trying to decide what kind of mouse surface is good for a casual gamer that wants a decent size mouse pad that also has precise control for some shooting games but also is good for other games.

    "control" is an odd word when used in context of mouse pads. It is even in the name of one of razers mats the goliathus "control" edition.
    However control is in the hands of the beholder so to speak as to how you use your mouse to get most accuracy. My girlfriend and I both have razer goliathus pads, I have the speed edition and she has the control edition (both are medium size). I prefer speed for a smoother surface to make sweeping motions to snap those headshots (thats the theory, i miss most of them lol). Wheras the control edition offers more resistance and texture.
    I know this probably doesnt help but it really does all depend on personal preference. I cant say for all mouse mats but i know the goliathus has a hole in the box so you can feel the surface before you buy, so best idea is to get to a stockists and see what you like the feel of.

    Honestly I tried both but it didn't change my gameplay very much, I'd just go for the new gigantus as it has the best looking design, a thicker surface and a decent size

    i've always liked hard surfaces for gaming, but that's just me. i've been using the firefly for awhile, but it's probably a bit pricey if you're not that hardcore. you could probably get a decent mat for less than half that

    & yeah, the gigantus does look pretty good :)

    I'd vouch that the Control is just as fast as the Speed edition, but I've played competitively with a neoprene laptop cover before so I can honestly say I don't care, and that it doesn't matter. Just as long as it's big enough for your mouse movements.
