Mon 19th Jan 2015 - 5:17pm : Gaming

Introduction

The PC gaming scene is becoming more and more complex demanding higher professional skill and precision in action. The introduction of new games with distinct requirement of speed on one hand and accuracy on the other hand has raised demands for the development of new purpose build mouse pads to meet each type of the requirement.

This has resulted in development of two types of mouse pads, speed edition and control edition. The speed edition mouse pads are used for games where speed gets preference over accuracy. The control edition mouse pads are used where accuracy gets preference over speed.

The name of Razer for production of gaming peripherals is not unfamiliar for the gamers. They responded to these demands with their well researched products, RAZER GOLIATHUS SPEED GAMING MOUSE MAT AND RAZER GOLIATHUS CONTROL GAMING MOUSE MAT. Hereunder we shall discuss the later.

Un-boxing

Razer Goliathus Control Gaming Mouse pad comes in a card board box in rolled up shape. The box is black in color having beautifully designed graphics of logo in green. It carries useful data printed on it, including specification, size, title, edition etc. Comments from pro gamers are also printed on one side. The box has a small window through which you can not only see the pad, but also touch it to get a feel of the material. The size of the box corresponds to the size of the mouse mat in it.

Size

Razer Goliathus Control Gaming Mouse pad comes in four sizes. The smallest size measures 215 mm X 270 mm X 3mm (8.46 inches X 10.73 inches X 0.12 inches) and weigh 3.8 ounces.

The large size measures 355 mm X 444 mm X 3mm (13.98 inches X 17.48 inches X 0.12 inches) and weigh 10.9 ounces. The extended size measures 294 mm X 920 mm X 3mm   (11.57 inches X 36.22 inches X 0.12 inches) and weigh1.2 pounds.

Mouse pads of all the sizes are 3 mm (0.12 inches) thick which is a comfortable height for placing your wrest to control mouse movement positively.

Characteristics

The surface of Razer Goliathus Control Gaming Mouse pad is made of densely woven textured cloth. This generates friction which results in precise movement control of the mouse and accurate aiming on the target.  It is black in color and carries image of logo in green. However, this image is not a sticker and do not affect the performance of a mouse. The base is made of non skidding rubber. It is green in color. It holds perfect on all the types of tops and does not slip from its place.

The sides of the mouse pad have been strengthened by-stitching all around to make it anti fraying and prevent parting of top cloth surface from the rubber base.

The material for these mouse pads has been developed after a long research and tested in the Razer’s laboratories. These pads have been used and validated by pro-gamers for their enhanced responsiveness as a gaming grade mouse pad.

These are supplied with a limited warrantee of 06 months.

Performance

In contrast to the speed edition which facilitates free gliding of the mouse on the pad to acquire speed benefits, the Razer Goliathus Control Gaming Mouse pad generates friction because of its rough surface. This friction exerts a force in opposite direction to the force a gamer apply to move the mouse. This results in more precise and controlled movement of the mouse and stops the mouse exactly where required by the gamer. This also prevents a jerking start of the mouse. Because of their high in-game accuracy, control edition mouse pad suits more to FPS games where, snipping or target shooting is required. Razer Goliathus Control Gaming Mouse pad can be used with optical, laser or dual sensor mouse.

 Because of the soft surface a gamer can rest his hand on the mouse pad without feeling any type of discomfort during long gaming sessions.

These mouse pads are designed to cover the maximum range of sensitivity. These are, therefore, equally good for high and low sensitivity and can be trusted to provide consistent positive control and an accurate tracking response during extensive gaming periods. By design Razer Goliathus Control Mouse pad is a gaming mouse pad, but it can also be used for other computer works as well.

Razer Goliathus Control Gaming Mouse pad is available in a variety of sizes which provides freedom of choice to the gamers according to their requirements. The small size is good for the table tops where the space is limited. The medium and large sizes perfectly match the gaming requirement where the mouse movement requires a bigger surface area. The extended size allows you to place your key board on the mouse pad. Everyone can have a Razer Goliathus Control Gaming Mouse pad according to his gaming style and availability of space. These are very handy for transportation. These can be rolled up and packed in luggage without any damage.

Razer Goliathus Control Gaming Mouse pad is synapse enabled. This mean that synapse enabled Razer mice can be calibrated for this mouse pad to give an optimum output.

It can be easily cleaned by-gently wiping with a moist cloth.

 

Conclusion

The availability of Razer Goliathus Control Gaming Mouse pad in four sizes provides wide range of choice for users. It is easy to maintain and clean. The cloth surface is specially preferred by gamers who have sweating hands. It is an up gradation upon Razer’s other cloth mouse pads. Lessons learnt from their use and the requirements of top professional gamers have been duly considered in the development of this mouse pad. The price is reasonable keeping in view the quality and performance. It can be a preferred choice for gamers with Razer synapse enabled mice because of its compatibility with the mice.
