Unbeatable value to quality ratio...

I was looking for a new mouse pad since the product I have used for approximately a year, a Perixx mat, was heavily degraded and no longer suitable for my needs. I am happy to report that the TeckNet equivalent is far better in many ways!
The mouse pad itself is actually really nice to look at. The rubber weave on which the mouse rests is an attractive deep black colour, and the colour is entirely even - something that has been a problem with previous products I've tried. The stitching on the side is mostly even and is a wonderful innovation, as it means the edges don't get worn like on a standard mat. I also like the solid white logo displaying 'TeckNet' as well - it's not fussy and it doesn't need to be, providing a nice colour contrast.
In terms of using the mouse pad itself, my Perixx mouse glides wonderfully over the material and enables accurate gaming and work use. I love how the stitching also provides a tangible physical barrier where the edges of the mat are, meaning it's easy to detect without looking. The size is also brilliant, though possibly a bit large if you are on a smaller desk - it will happily fit adjacent to a laptop with no problems, though. Thankfully, it also remains completely still even during heavy use, at least on my wooden desk.
One minor gripe is that after opening the mat itself, there was a rather strong smell (no doubt related to how the rubber has been treated) which is quite heady! This is easily fixed, however, by leaving the product by an open window for around 30 minutes. It smells totally fine now, and I can't wait to use it more.
Edit as of 20/06/20: I still use this mouse mat daily—and after 2 years of heavy use—there are virtually no signs of any wear. The mat still functions perfectly and looks good. I now use a Logitech MX Master mouse, and the surface has no problem keeping up with the responsiveness of this high-end product.
