ROCCAT Raivo Gaming Mousepad
WHAT WE LIKED:Large surface, non slip back, precision movement
WHAT WE DISLIKED:Granulated surface might offer too much resistance for some gamers, unclear warranty
Earlier this year, we reviewed the ROCCAT Hiro mouse pad that was a good product but a bit pricey. Over-all we enjoyed that product and were grateful to ROCCAT for the chance to review it. Well, we are back again with a new ROCCAT mouse-pad, and this one is the new Raivo. The Raivo has a micro-granulated surface with a non-slip base. It is intended as a gaming mouse pad, with high velocity and precision in mind. The ROCCAT Raivo features a large 350mm x 270mm surface area giving the user plenty of room to move freely without relocating the mouse. It is designed with rounded edges and flexible construction, and is marketed as being easy to clean. Will the new Raivo be enough to impress us? Read on to find out if it meets our standards.
