On the G-TF pad, the mouse moves faster than on the previously reviewed SteelSeries QcK, which is a great plus in games which require this, like most of the shooters. It is also durable enough and water resistant, so if we spill water on it by mistake during a LAN party contest, the pad will not suffer any damage.
The SWIFT black surface is even better than the G-TF in terms of precision and speed, if you do not mind the texture of the hard plastic surface; also, the mouse tends to make more noise on this surface compared any other cloth mouse pad, but this cannot be considered a negative thing, mostly because most professional gamers, when going to LAN parties have their headsets on and even if they don’t, the sound produced by the friction would be much less than the noise in the room.
For office use, I would definitely recommend the G-TF pad, because of its cloth surface and lack of extra noise when using the mouse on it.
Price wise the G-TF goes for $30
, the SWIFT available in many colors is slightly more expensive at $35
. Depending on your preference either one is priced up enough to qualify for "enthusiast market"; you don't want to leave it behind at a LAN party.
I would like to thank again to ZOWIE GEAR
