Default Mouse Pad

I am looking for a good quality mouse pad. Currently I have one of those foam and cloth pads. And I decided to find a decent quality one. I am looking for one on newegg, because I am lready placing an order with them for dvd media, I would like both to come from one retailer.

What pads do you suggest, what do you currently use?

My mouse is a logitch mx1000, if that makes any difference.

Well I did find something, I thought I would share, since no one knows.

Here's the one I have:

I'm not gonna lie... I really wanted it because it glowed blue. It turns out to be an awesome mouse pad though. I've never owned anything other than the same kind of mouse pad you're using now, but there is a huge difference. I didn't think mouse pads could make that much of a difference, but they do. I use these cheap *** mouse on it (also glows blue ):

Yeah, I dont think I'll give up my mx1000 for that 9$ mouse, sorry. I do know some one who might like a lighted mouse pad, and a back light keyboard, and sure a mouse with it too.

people still use mouse pads in this day and age of optical and laser mice? I haven't used a mouse pad in about 2 years

The one you're looking at is probably the best, at newegg atleast. The other func's are oddly shaped and would look weird on a desk in my opinion

Hope it works out for you
I'm yet to get a new one, using a Belkin with a gel wrist pad. Comfortable, but I'd like a new one.

My glass mousepad looks cool, feels nice, and definately tracks better than my wood table.
