In life, the mouse pointer can move quickly without hindrance. The key is to choose a suitable mouse pad. A good mouse pad is not just the icing on the cake.
1: What are the performance parameters of the mouse pad?
The startup of the mouse pad is the rapid performance of the mouse on the mouse pad, and the rapid turning action in FPS games is closely related to this performance.
The startup of the mouse is divided into two parts. The first is to overcome the static friction between the mouse foot sticker and the mouse pad, and turn the mouse friction state to the dynamic friction state. This process is generally when the mouse pad is the most astringent, and a relatively large force is required to remove it. The mouse switches from static friction to kinetic friction. The second stage is the continuous acceleration stage of the mouse. Some mouse pads will increase the friction force as the mouse speed increases. These two together determine the startability of the mouse pad.
Fluency can also be considered as the smoothness of the mouse pad. The higher the fluency, the smoother the mouse pad. However, this smoothness is not as high as possible. Generally, the improvement of smoothness is accompanied by a decrease in stopability, that is, the more difficult it is to accurately control the mouse.
For example: Razer Heavy Armored Bug, the Heavy Armored Bug is divided into two types: the control version and the speed version. From the literal meaning, it should be that the speed version is smoother, but in fact the control version using the coarse weaving process is smoother. This is determined by the surface technology. The coarse woven surface brings less contact area between the mouse foot sticker and the mouse pad, which in turn leads to more fluency.
Braking is relative to activation, which is the process of the mouse from sliding to rest. In other words, it is the astringency of the mouse. The higher the astringency, the better the braking performance of the mouse pad.
In the game, high DPI blocks and handicapped parties are more suitable for astringent pads. Cushions with a high astringency are more suitable for manipulation with a small range of motion. The less obvious the response to hand shaking is, the more stable the mouse is.
The thickness of the mouse pad, the thicker the mouse pad and the weaker the communication on the desktop.
In general, the advantage of thick pads is to achieve higher flatness on tables with uneven surfaces. And many people are used to thick pads because thick pads are more comfortable, they can pad the mouse to a more comfortable height, or they won’t hurt the desktop when they lose the game and drop the mouse.
