There is lots of competition in gaming/high quality mouse pads. I myself own a wide variety, using products from Razer and other major companies. Besides their quality construction, what separates gaming mouse pads from the norm is the types of surfaces they offer. Some have more drag, some less, some are smooth, some are textured, some are fabric, some are plastic, etc. In short, it’s all about catering to user choice and preference, with gamers being among the most discriminating.
Sentey makes a clear statement with their Kairos Pro (GS-2800)–they’re here to compete with the big boys of gaming mouse pads. The 12.1 x 10″ (310 x 254mm) mouse pad, which is considered medium size, comes sealed in cello-wrap inside a fitted carboard box, complete with interior padding and slick mini-catalog highlighting Sentey’s other gaming-centric products.
The Kairos Pro is nice and substantial at 5mm thick, consisting of a natural eco rubber non-slip base, with an edge-to-edge hard plastic (PVC) surface, providing moderate friction levels. Sentey’s marketing speak refers to the surface as low friction GLIDETECH, which “enhances the tracking speed of virtually any gaming mouse.” Whatever the description, my Mad Catz Cyborg R.A.T. 5 gaming mouse did indeed feel great on it, making a satisfying shooshing sound as it moved and tracking smoothly and accurately.
The one negative that I’ll mention is that the extreme left and right edges of the mouse pad don’t lay perfectly flat, which some may find bothersome. However, even if you think something like that has the potential to bother you, at only $10.99 on Amazon, the Kairos Pro still represents an incredible value more than worth taking a chance on, particularly with that nifty smooth, slightly textured surface.
Thanks to Sentey for the review product.
