Pros: The mousepad was much larger than I expected from looking at the pics. This was a pleasant surprise in my case. The top surface texture is great; not too smooth, not too rough. The rubber base does a great job keeping the pad from moving around the desk during usage. The mousepad is rectangular which makes it easy to rotate the pad to even out wear, although it does look kind of dumb when the big "G" logo is upside down.
Cons: The edge of the mousepad is very sharp... Past mousepads that I've used all had things to address this such as a rubber edge, or a tapered edge. This mousepad has nothing except a flat, sharp, unforgiving edge. Since I tend to have my wrist rest on the edge of the pad this has proven problematic for me. Sometimes it just results in making my hand go numb, other times it almost feels like it's cutting into my wrist. I know it's possible to improvise a solution to this; I've read about others putting tape on the edge of the pad, etc, but I should not have to resort to that.
Overall Review: I just went through a bunch of cheap mousepads trying to find a replacement for my last trusty old Func 1030 that finally wore out. Every mousepad I tried was terrible. The G440 is the first mousepad I've used in a long time that actually feels like a high-quality mousepad and gets most things right. If it didn't have such a wrist-unfriendly sharp edge, this mousepad would be almost perfect.
Pros: Nice size area to game with
Overall Review: Saving this item for future purchases
Overall Review: It works well, though it has more flex to it than I thought. Which requires it to be placed on a hard surface.
Pros: - Exactly what I ordered and expected
Cons: - None
Overall Review: Only thing that could of been better, is free =)
