My razer (best mouse made) diamondback wont read on my desk

I have a thread in the gaming section for great cheap mousepads.

a 20$ steelpad is a good investment for a pad though... a 40$ steelpad like mine is great

Pad's make a world of difference

my optical mouse skips about too. i just use the stock dell mouse mat which came with my pc, althoygh i suspect the mouse is not the best mouse money can buy, so i suppose that makes a difference. a good quality mouse mat designed for optical mice does work better than a rollerball mouse tho...

Why should I clean it more frequently? When it's in a closed surface, no dust gets in the reader.

However i cleaned the top more often
