Contrast Of Steelpad Steel4s And Steel5l & Evaluation Of Logitech G5 Laser Mouse

It was early March as well as I decided to upgrade my trusty Microsoft Optical mouse that I had been making use of for 2 years and also replace it with something a bit more approximately date … I looked on the internet and also looked into testimonials on mice and afterward begin reading about the combination of computer mice and also mousepads (albeit possibly 3 years later than everyone else…) as well as how crucial the combination could be.

Since I’m a little older as well as the “buy affordable, purchase twice” plan makes a lot feeling, I involved the final thought that I wanted the best mouse and also the most effective mouse floor covering.

This brought me to 2 items

1) Logitech G5 Laser Mouse
2) SteelSeries Mousepad 4S (Stiff metal mouse pad with chemical engraved matt black surface).

I nearly bit the hand of the distribution man on the morning they were supplied, desperately unwrapping them like it was my 10th Birthday– looking good, opened the Steelpad FOUR Steel initially as well as saw the matt black, nearly stealth looking mousepad. Great. Then opened the Logitech box as well as taking a look at the G5 Laser mouse. Very amazed.

I plugged the mouse in and loaded the software… First impressions of the G5.

1) It looked great. Really felt excellent.
2) I didn’t like the wheel (it supplied a great deal even more resistance than the Microsoft Optical mouse– it wasn’t as complimentary wheeling).

I tampered the weights and also made a decision that it had not been for me so I place the Logitech G5 Laser mouse back in its packaging and also called the provider for an RMA number. Extremely let down undoubtedly!


Following for the Steelpad 4S Steel.

Now, this looked good, felt excellent and also best of all, it executed. Utilizing my Microsoft optical mouse on it functioned excellently – nevertheless, it seemed to have quite a bit of noise and friction. I fitted some pad surfers (a strip of self-adhesive low friction product that is supplied with the steel pad) reduced them to dimension and stuck them to the feet of the mouse.


A week passed and I would certainly not had a chance to send out the G5 back – somehow I believed I ‘d offer it an additional shot. I do not recognize why I did this, nevertheless, I ‘d kept reading wonderful reviews as well as though I must be doing glitch right here.

I got it set up as before as well as at first, it felt better on the FOUR Steel surface than the optical. After an hour of me stating that the scroll wheel was too hard to move, I began to get made use of to it. I likewise transformed the switches to ensure that the ‘+’ button was (Ctrl+ Get In), as I use Opera web browser – this works for wand commands and the ‘-‘ switch to change between the present as well as last web page open in Opera (Ctrl+ Tab). Which, if you’re contrasting two websites can be really valuable.

I made use of the left as well as right on the scroll wheel to act as a middle switch to make sure that it would open the picked link in the background. Once more a very beneficial tool.

It was beginning to expand on me. The final straw was that I had a similar MS Optical mouse on another pc in one more space in your home and also once I used it– it really felt so inexpensive and also the scroll wheel, in fact, felt like it really did not have sufficient resistance!

A week or two passed as well as I started to obtain irritated with the scraping noise of the Logitech G5 Laser Mouse on the Steelpad 4S Steel so I ordered some, specially designed, G5 pad-surfers from Steelpad. This seemed to do the trick and also I very carefully got rid of the initial ones from the G5. Much quieter– or at the very least it seemed. A week later I was getting frustrated with the sound once again and also the scratching feeling (sign the fingernails on chalkboard noise)– I ‘d had sufficient.

As I really such as Steelpad’s discussion and performance, but not the noise– I went back as well as got the Steelseries 5L fabric and plastic mouse mat. Wow, instant noise reduction, well-cushioned sensation (not as well soft– just right) as well as it was a little bigger.

I now have the most effective combination of all currently. The most effective mouse and it’s connected the very best mouse-pad (well, in my viewpoint anyhow).

If you desire a terrific mix don’t bother with the FOUR, get the 5L as well as the Logitech G5 laser– there’s no beating this combination!
