Vinyl Matrox:


  • Cheap
  • Less Friction than cloth mouse pads


  • Not Spill Proof

First Impression:

This is the other type of mouse pad most of you have, itís a slick surface with micro bumps on it. The mouse seems to glide better than on my cloth mouse pad, but I still feels like something is dragging on the bottom of my mouse.

The Tests:

All tests were conducted in the same way as described above.

1st Trail 2nd Trail 3rd Trail 4th Trail 5th Trail 6th Trail 7th Trail 8th Trail
1.11s 1.25s 2.04s 1.8s 1.53s 1.47s 1.26s 1.37s

Average: 1.47s

Ball Friction:

1st Trail 2nd Trail 3rd Trail 4th Trail 5th Trail
7.4mm 5.3mm 6.8mm 6.8mm 7.2mm
6th Trail 7th Trail 8th Trail 9th Trail 10th Trail
6.3mm 6.8mm 6.8mm 7.3mm 6.3mm

Average: 6.7mm

As you can see from the results the mouse actually slid down the incline plain, it took its sweet time about it but it actually did it. So this mouse pad doesnít apply that much friction to the bottom of the mouse, but sadly it doesnít apply more friction than the cloth mouse pad does.
