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
ROCCAT did an amazing job in the design and construction of the Raivo mouse pad; the non-slip base was outstanding. I’ve been using the Raivo almost a week now and can attest to how comfortable it is to use. The large surface and non-slip base made gaming hassle free. Although there was some slight resistance, the precision and accuracy was excellent and probably helped me more then I would think. I did notice some damage from the friction caused to the bottom of my mouse where the pads are.
For a price of $29.99 USD you can find the ROCCAT Raivo at Newegg.com. The manufacturer doesn’t state a warranty period themselves, but Newegg.com indicated it was one year. It turns out that some slight damage was done to my mouse from friction caused by the surface. I also had some personal issues with the resistance it caused. I personally would prefer a much finer grain on the surface so it would be a bit smoother. Despite these qualms, I would consider the ROCCAT Raivo to be an exceptional quality gaming mouse pad and would recommend it, especially for the right gaming style. I can’t say it would be my first choice, but in no way would it be my last either. It would definitely be in my short list for purchase. With everything factored in, I am glad to present the PureOverclock Great Hardware award to the ROCCAT Raivo mouse pad.
