LMAO. I like to use a plain old silver mouse pad. The two dollar ones. I find the 30 dollor Razar mouse pads to be really....stupid.

That's because you've never used one. I have a razer exactmat, I must say, the mouse literally glides on it like ice skates on freshly zamboni'd ice. I used to have a $2 cloth pad, and the difference is like night and day.

The G5 is a right handed mouse. If you're looking for a left handed mouse, it's going to need to be symetrical. You actually use your mouse on the left side? My friend is a lefty and became used to a right handed mouse...

If your a lefty the only option for you is a razer diamondback (1600dpi) or a razer copperhead (2000dpi). I thought you knew about this, I posted it earlier in the thread.

It would, but when you get 1600dpi and beyond there isn't enough difference in the material so you are wasting money buying a mouse that has a better camera in it. With these special mouse pads there is tiny differernces in the material for it to see.

And btw. a frying pan costs just as much as a opticle pad (almost.)

Well, not at Dollar General, but I bet that's more of an American thing...
