-- Flexiglow Fx Game Pad
-- Price: ~$39.95 USD

   Today we have another fun and color filled item for review.  As many people who frequent GT know, we like lights. Whether it be case, fan or even house lighting, we're good for it.  So a few days ago, a new item from the folks at Flexiglow landed on my lap.  They just released their new Fx Game Pad to the masses.

   Here are some features:

  • 7 Colors options in one pad choices (green, red, blue, yellow, purple, aqua, mixed blue)

  • Eight function is automatic cycle through the seven colours

  • Incredible lit up bubble effect

  • Gaming enthusiast approved mousing surface

  • Terrific night time illumination ideal for LAN parties

  • Low power consumption LED lights

  • USB Cable 1.8m

  • Slick mousing surface that works well with both Ball and Optical Mice

  • Roughly 22cm X 26cm

   It's basically a hard mousing surface wrapped with clear plastic with bubbles.  They added 4 multi-colored LEDs in the middle to light things up.  Here is a shot of the bubbles within the clear outside plastic, pardon the color as I was trying to enhance the bubbles for viewing.

   The user is allowed to adjust these colors by using a button at the top of the unit.  The rubber button sticks out about a 1mm from the surface.  It stopped my mouse a few times by getting in it's way.  So instead of avoiding it all together, I took a hobby knife and chopped it off.

   The bottom of the unit has four rubber feet to keep it in place.  They include two extra self-adhesive feet.  I need to use them at the top and bottom because if I pressed hard enough, it would start moving either forward or back.  So the two extra feet were used to stabilize the surface a bit more.
