Nice review! I always think its hard to review a mouse mat as it really is down to personal opinion.

the XTrac does look like my Everglide Titan.

Thanks !TIMMY!, and I agree. It's definitely hard to review something like a mouse mat that can have many variables to many people. You'll never please everyone

Pretty fast mate. I did the same test as [Ins] and it was virtually as fast as I could from side to side and up and down (motion) on high sensitivity. After toning the sensitivity down a notch on my mouse the phenomena went away.

If you are looking for a good, budget mouse mat then you really can't go wrong with the XTrac imo.
