Today there are many varieties of mousepads, ranging from the cheapest to the gamers, and there can reach up to $ 30 and above. Also the good mouse pad must be easy to clean.

Mouse Pads can be divided into two types according to the type of use:

The working surfaces are divided according to the material:

  • cloth mousepads;
  • plastic mousepads;
  • cork mousepads;

  • gel mousepads;

Cloth mousepads

They have a base made of porous rubber, on which cloth is fixed with the upper layer. The rubber at the bottom prevents the mousepad from sliding on the table. A mousepad made from cloth provides good sliding of the mouse, and coupled with its precise cursor positioning, choosing such a mousepad will be a right solution not only for office work but also for games. 

Such kind of mouse pads are inexpensive and have a long service life.

Plastic mousepads

Due to their low price, they are the most common. They are made of rubber and a plastic layer applied on top. The low cost of plastic rugs affects their durability.

The positioning accuracy on low-cost models is low, and cursor slips can be observed, although there are no such problems in more expensive gaming plastic mats.
