Kind of you Alex.

I think if there is one conclusion we can deduce from this roundup, it's that CM Storm have created a mat that covers anyone, and pretty much any of them would be a good purchase.

And not forgetting to thank our overlords at OC3D and CM Storm for making this happen

Nice reviews all, my only criticism is throughout them reviews, there was only 1 con on page 5? About it being not durable enough.

These mat's can't all be perfect

As far as im concerned the frayed edges on my mat was the only durability concern. Again thanks to OC3D and CM for the oppertunity to even do these reviews

Hate to burst your bubble, but if the rest of them are as good as the Battle Pad, then yes they are.

As my user-title attests, I'm cynical. It would have been easy to go "ooh I get the chance to review something, must be positive" and so I made a special effort to find any flaw I could.

There isn't one. At all. Not a sausage. I'm struggling to thing of a single computing part I've ever had my hands on that was so perfect at what it was for.

In fact I'd defy anyone to use the SSK and find a problem with it.

very different reviews. Nice to see different point of views over a range of products. All though seemingly there inst much of a difference between them all.

Would be nice to see a over all round up or editors choice award for the best of them.

Good Reviews :)

Read all the reviews and thought they were all well done and well written.

Is good to see the next generation of reviewers having a go

Thanks for the comments guys

I'll have to agree with VB here, my mat is perfect, granted I haven't compared it to many others, but from another similarly priced mat it's amazing.
