Release Date: 2/7/2010
Colors: Gray, Mass Effect 3, Transformers 3
The Good: Excellent design, each side feels just right, included wrist pad feels nice, the mouse pad won’t move at all
The Bad: A bit pricey for a mouse pad, may not be big enough for frantic gamers
Razer is one of the best gaming peripheral manufacturers out there, and their mouse pads are unmatched. They have a large line of them for different types of gamers whether you want speed, control, portability, or a large area. The Vespula is a mix of control and speed and is so well designed. The mat itself is double sided, one side for speed, one for control. The side for control is a little more gritty than the reverse side, but they are both a solid gray color so it doesn’t interfere with high-end laser mice. I actually like both and will change the side depending on what mouse I am using.
The pad comes with a rubber mat that has a wrist pad attached to it. This is so ingenious because the wrist pad feels just right. Some gamers scoff at the use of a mouse pad but it keeps your hand steady for players who aren’t waving their arms around like a crazy person. The wrist pad isn’t too soft or too hard, and it isn’t too big. I found it very hard to get this mouse pad to move at all which is a good thing, it will stay put. You also don’t have to use the wrist pad because the mat has four rubber feet that are a neon green to make the companies art style. Yes, the mouse pad does look very cool and has some neat cutouts.
When you open the package you get a thank you card from Razer and two sticker decals like with all their other products. This mouse pad may be a bit pricey for most gamers, but I thought it was well worth it. You’re essentially getting two mouse pads and a wrist pad for one price. I really love this pad and works so well with my Razer Mamba and R.A.T. 9 that I can’t help but recommend this to everyone.
