Overclockers Australia heeft een review gepost van de 'Everglide Large Black Attack Pad', da's een hele mooie naam voor een zwart gekleurd muismatje. Uiteraard hebben we het hier wel over een echte Everglide, dus betere precisie bij het mikken op de Windows trashcan:
Even though the Explorer does not need a mouse mat it still benefits from the lower friction on the Everglide surface. The ball mouse was similar - I would say my accuracy with the railgun in Q3 probably doubled because of the fine, smooth movements afforded by this mousepad. Sadly, that is where the first flaw with this unit appears. It first manifested as an irritating habit of falling off the railgun platform on Q3DM17. I first put this down to my not being used to the higher sensitivity of the mouse and persisted. But no, I would land on the platform, run to the first health, turn on that corner of the platform and accellerate towards the other health with the arrow keys.. falling off the platform. It really seemed that I was not completing the turn in time, even after my brain had compensated for the new mousemat. After a fair bit more experimentation, I discovered what was occurring. It seems the surface is a little TOO smooth for my ball mouse. It seems that when you move the mouse rapidly to one side (as when turning) the ball does not grip and takes a little while to spin up - basically it skids unpredictably. This soon became a serious point of irritation and noticeable in a few other places in Q3.
