This XXL — which truly means extra-extra large in this case — mousepad from ENHANCE isn't your typical surface for pointing devices. Sporting a comfortable wrist rest and massive amounts of real estate make this affordable accessory worth considering if you're in the market for a new mousepad. Not only could you throw a gaming pointer on this mousepad, but also a full QWERTY keyboard and a bunch of other things.
And at $40, it's an affordable mousepad that cries out for attention.
You'll love the comfort levels
So just how big is the XXL mousepad? According to the specifications, confirmed by a curious yours truly, we're talking 13.75 (mm) inches wide by 31.5 inches (mm) long. Like I said already; it's huge. Too large for even my desk keyboard tray, which plays host to both means of input. The only feasible way I can use this pad on the tray is to have it sideways, which defeats the purpose of having the wrist rest.
If you prefer using a larger desk for both your keyboard and mouse, you'll feel right at home here. The sleek black design with very little in terms of noise on the surface of the mousepad allows it to fit right in without feeling out of place or too obnoxious. And the memory foam wrist rest is the same color as the rest of the pad, which prevents it from sticking out like a sore thumb. The rest itself is a single inch high.
While it's not a costly, premium mousepad, ENHANCE has used anti-fray stitching edges to ensure it'll last longer than you'd expect. All you really need to do is wipe it down occasionally, especially if you eat at the PC. As for performance, it's super-smooth without any obstructions. Testing latest mice with different sensors allowed for serious gaming and productivity without issue.
That said, most mousepads today offer excellent experiences and you'll be hard-pressed to locate one that doesn't.
One size doesn't fit all
The only real issue with the XXL mousepad is the omission of XL and L sizes for those with smaller areas to work with. If said options were available, it would be possible to have the choice of this monstrosity, a small size dedicated for mouse operation only, and a third for both keyboard and mouse but with less room for wiggling wrists. Other than that, ENHANCE has produced an excellent mousepad.
Perfect if you have the desk space
Should you have enough space for a 32 x 14 inch mousepad, you could do much worse than this ENHANCE mousepad, especially if you suffer from strained wrists when working at a desktop or enjoying long gaming sessions. At $40, it's also considerably less expensive than premium offerings from better-known accessory vendors. The premium materials used in production make it durable enough that you should replace the mouse and/or keyboard before the surface.
And should something happen, the mousepad is backed by a three-year warranty for added peace of mind.
