The dual-sided Razer Vespula gaming mouse mat provides two distinct performance surfaces — SPEED for mad fragging action for high-sensitivity gamers; and CONTROL for ultra-precise movements for low-sensitivity gamers — on a non-slip, anti-reflective and abrasion-resistant hard coat. With its unique shape and the soft gel-filled wrist rest, the Razer Vespula provides comfort and perfect tracking for any gamer.
Whether you prefer to gun down your enemies with the increased glide of the SPEED surface or with ultimate precision from the CONTROL surface, the Razer Vespula offers the right surface that suits your playing style.
Razer mouse mats that are Speed-type are incredibly smooth and flat, so it feels like your mouse is slipping quickly across the entire surface with zero hindrance. Speed-type mats suit gamers who need to hit targets faster and more efficiently.
The Razer Vespula’s dual surfaces have been developed for enhanced tracking by the same scientists at Razer that have invented the most precise gaming mice in the world today. Professional gamers have also put the Razer Vespula through thousands of hours of intense gameplay to validate the tracking surfaces for tournament play.
Razer mouse mats that are Control-type have rough surfaces to create a sensation of resistance to your mouse movements. This is important as the friction of the textured surface offsets the energy you exert to move the mouse, ensuring precise minute movements. Control-type mats suit gamers who need absolute precision to hit targets exactly where they need to.
The soft gel-filled wrist rest protects your wrist from injury and fatigue, allowing you to enjoy longer gaming sessions like never before.
Razer Synapse is the cutting-edge proprietary software that allows you to perfectly calibrate your mouse and mouse mat. The Surface Calibration feature ensures the mouse will learn the specific surface’s texture, color, and distance from sensor ensuring even quicker and more precise in-game responses.
I was using a Rocketfish Mouse Pad on my gamming computer and did not have any issues with it.
All that being said, this is the only mouse pad I will ever use.
I've had this mouse pad for 7 years and it is still great.
The razer logo on the wrist rest WILL wear away if you rest your wrist there and the control side of the pad has started to come up on the sides but I glued them back down and it's still doing just fine.
Great mousepad for gaming, and has a very comfortable wrist rest good for long gaming sessions.
If the air bubble was off to the side I would have been completely fine with it, but that's not the case, it's right in the center of the mouse pad and when you try to glide your mouse from one side to the other there is resistance and it does not do well for gaming.
A bubble that develops in the center of the pad on the rougher side.This has now happened in the same place on both of them that I've owned, which suggests to me it's some kind of defect in the design or manufacturing of the mousepads rather than a one-off problem.The smooth side has yet to develop a bubble, so it's still usable (hence my giving it at least two stars) but the side with the bubble just isn't usable for anything that requires precision anymore, since the bubble will interfere with moving the mouse around smoothly.
However, is started to bubble up after 10 months and is only warrantied for 6 months.
Everything about this mouse pad is great - for the very short period of time that it works - except that the plastic piece that the pad texture is glued to has a small round divot in the center and over the course of the first year the adhesive came free and formed a small bubble in the center of the mousepad.
Both of these issues are widely reported here by other reviewers.But like I said, the pad is great for the short time it works, so I emailed Razer to ask them if they have fixed the divot issue and perhaps use a flat piece of plastic instead of one with a divot in it, since I had purchased mine 2 years ago.
