Well so far we have established that this pad is well anchored, has a nice mousing surface, and looks decent. What is there not to love? Answer: the size.
This is my normal, every day mouse pad for my PC. It's an Everglide Gaming Mat, which while increasingly rare to find these days, it can be found for about $7. I have found that it is about my optimal size (roughly 8x12 inches) for what I use it for, and that includes a lot of gaming. Lets see how it compares in size to the Glide-Pad.
As you can see, the Glide-Pad's usable space is quite small in comparison.
So small in fact, you can hide the entire thing under my existing pad with room to spare.
To give you an idea of the size, this is a regular package for mac and cheese, not the family box. It fits almost perfectly with the edges of the acrylic on both sides. Of course, you really cannot even use all of that space, because your mouse falls off the end of the pad before you can get there. So really the useable space is even smaller than the pictures show. I would estimate that the useable space of the Glide-Pad pad is roughly 1/10th of what my existing pad has.
The problem is illustrated here. Notice now the mouse can only move up and down about an inch and a half from the home position. There is only slightly more room on the sides for movement, but it still feels very tight.
For now, the Glide-Pad has found a home at my PowerMac G4. It matches the mouse and keyboard's color scheme and since I never game with the G4, and all my mouse work usually involves tedious and small movements, it works wonderfully. AngelEye Technologies has a winner with this pad, but they need to make it larger and ditch the hexgon shape. This pad would be right at home on most people's desk, but I advise gamers to skip this one.
