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.
