Table-sized mouse pads are becoming increasingly popular. They offer enough space for full-size keyboards and gaming mice and can even embellish a sleek desk considerably.
Nitro Concepts, until now known for high-quality and colourful gamer chairs such as the S300, is now entering the XXL mouse pad market with its new Deskmats DM9, DM12 and DM16.
You can find out in this test how the table mats stand their ground in everyday life and under playing conditions and whether a purchase is worth it.
Design and Workmanship
The Deskmats from Nitro Concepts are currently available in two designs. With the Stealth Black colour variant you get an elegant mat completely in black, which is rounded off by a black, slightly reflective logo.
Inferno Red is the name of the stylish coloured version of the desk pad, which attracts attention with its fiery red edge and the slightly contrasting geometric shapes on the inner surface.
Since not every desk is the same size, the gaming pads are offered in three sizes. The smallest Deskmat is 90 cm long and 40 cm deep, the middle one measures 120 x 60 cm and covers most tables almost completely. The largest of the three has gigantic dimensions of 160 x 80 cm, making it suitable for any gamer or streamer with special space requirements.
All pads are 3mm thick, made of a fine but tough microfiber material that feels like neoprene, and have a stitched outer edge for added durability. They have a thin rubber layer on the underside so that the mats cannot slip unintentionally.
Immediately after removing them from their packaging, Nitro Concepts table mats can be unrolled without any problems. They nestle easily to the table without forming waves. This means they can be used immediately. The Deskmat DM12 tested here with 120 x 60 centimetres feels high-quality in every respect and does not smell of chemicals immediately after unpacking.
The tested mice, optical as well as laser, all glided without problems over the XXL mouse pad – no hook or jerk could be detected. Each movement performed in the test was precisely transmitted. The extraordinary size of the mouse pad makes its use a special pleasure. Gone are the days when you ran out of space on the pad with excessive mouse movements.
It is also practical that the surface is liquid-repellent due to the material. So the pad is not immediately ruined if you accidentally spilled your drink on it. Just wipe it off and you can gamble on.
Result of the Nitro Concepts Deskmat Review
The Nitro Concepts Deskmats are a fully-fledged upgrade for any gaming setup, whether simply elegant in black or fiery red. With their fine surface, they transmit every movement of a mouse exactly further and are easy to clean thanks to their robustness. With prices starting at 21,90 euros, the mouse pads in three different sizes are something no table should be without.
