XFX Warpad gaming mouse pad review
XFX are best known for their graphics cards and power supply units. It seems a little strange that they’ve also brought out a mouse pad. In their defence, it’s no ordinary mouse pad, in fact it’s pretty unique. The XFX Warpad has been designed to resolve the problem of forearm ache from contact with the hard edge of your PC desk.
Measuring a whopping 35cm x 43cm, the XFX Warpad is long enough to reach the edge of your desk while extending far enough forward to position your arm correctly.
An internal shoulder ensures the mouse pad is positioned squarely to the desk and the tension of the clamp holds it firmly in place. The system is suitable for any surface between 13mm and 50mm (0.5 – 2 inches) with a depth of at least 2 inches.
As well as its giant footprint, the Warpad is also extremely thick. The packaging states it’s 6mm, I’d say it’s closer to 8, almost 3 times thicker than my Razor Goliathus! The surface feels smooth and even to touch, similar to the Razor, but more spongy when pressure is applied.
The XFX Warpad is undoubtedly the most comfortable gaming pad I’ve used. If I could tweak it a little, I’d take 5 inches off its width and add a couple of inches to its length. Any future durability issues aside, I have no plans to revert back to my trusty old Razor Goliathus.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed using the Warpad, it’s given me the perfect excuse to squeeze in some extended gaming sessions over the last week. When the inevitable ‘sigh of disapproval’ comes, followed up by “How much longer are you going to play that stupid game for?” I’ve been able to respond- “I’m not playing a ‘stupid game’, I’m product testing. Now, leave the Tea on my new Razor coaster and be-gone woman”
If you’re wondering what the ‘stupid game is’ – here’s a link, but be careful it’s more addictive than crack cocaine.
