A good mouse and a smooth desk is really all you need. A high quality gaming mouse will have a nice laser sensor that can read off anything. I have a Razer Destructor but only because when I bought it the desk I was using was made out of 2x4s.

I've got a cheap circular mousepad that I got for like $5. Helps me out a lot considering I'm on a glass desk here. (Not literally on...)

Same here. I've got a glass top on my desk and I just use a circular Apple mouse pad (I'm anti-Apple but this mouse pad is great). It's just like these except mine is purple.



I would get a nice one but I have very limited space on my desk and I can slide this one under my monitor stand(it's really thin) to keep it from moving around.

I have this one:
Mionix Propus 380 Mouse Pad - Newegg.com



I liked it enough that I sold my Razer eXactMat once I got it.

Using this. Super fast pad so it took some getting used to from my Razer Kabuto but the Kabuto got worn out and ugly fast.

I'm surprised so many people still use mouse pads.

Some kind of shroud fell off of the sensor (was kind of an o-ring seal around the lens) on my Orochi, I have to use soft pads or a pretty dark surface now or else it gets sketchy at best.

When it works though it works.

That and I like the gliding feel of a pad.
