The XFX WarPad is actually a rather exciting product, not something I expected to say in a review when I was initially offered a mouse mat a few weeks ago. I was also surprised that XFX were diversifying their product portfolio this way.
The WarPad is a high quality, thick, soft and flexible mat which will appeal to a wide audience. I can’t speak from the viewpoint of a hardcore clan gamer, but from my own experiences, there are certainly comfort benefits to be gained from this specific design ideology. If you are sitting in front of a screen for many hours a day, normally the wrist is the first body part to feel discomfort.
The added wrist/arm support is certainly a great addition to the design and it does away with the need for those horrific gel wrist supports you can buy for a few quid.
UK pricing is £30 inc vat, and at this price you really can’t go wrong.
Below is a video which XFX created, after working with a team of professional level gamers. It shows the product in operation within a clan based environment.
- oversized design works well
- soft, thick and comfortable
- clamping system is painfree
- good pricing
- takes up a huge amount of space
Kitguru says: For £30 this has to be right at the top of a purchase list.
