Mionix Propus 380
Gaming surfaces (or more commonly known as mouse pads) are not nearly as popular, nor offer as wide a selection of models, as the actual mice that operate on them. Truth be told, most people probably have a mouse mat as an afterthought. Think about it, how many people do you know that actually call it a "gaming surface" rather than a "mouse pad"? Do you game on it? Not really. It’s quite a misnomer in my opinion, but I digress, so back to the real topic at hand.
Having used many different gaming surfaces over the years, I can confidently say that the lowly mouse pad is a much-maligned product that deserved a higher status in the pecking order of gaming accessories. A great gaming surface does make a world of difference, even more so with a premium mouse. A top notch surface will not help a garbage mouse though, so the two products share a symbiotic relationship of sorts.
Today we’re looking at a new gaming surface / mouse pad from Mionix, the Propus 380. It sports a very interesting design, as it has characteristics of both a speed mat and a control mat. Normally we’ve seen hybrid gaming surfaces to be rather disappointing, so let’s take a closer look at the Propus 380 and see if it can succeed where others have failed.
