ya, they are about the same, but reviews has one diffirence - 2008 and 2009 years. I would like to find some kind of review with comparing two mouse pads... Or more, but including these two. Because atm is unclear which one is better. I like the looking of sense mousepads, but iv read that taito is better because it has new technology padding or something plus i know for sure it is good, because i know some user who uses it for a few months now. But i am interested to buy some nice looking pad too, so i wanna compare those two pads. And i cant find any compare review, since diffirent years is not objective side of reviews... Maybe you can do that, because i was looking for a compare review some time and as i said, i cant find that kind of review. Thannks for replying.
