Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.
In theory, you can use a computer mouse on any surface. However, no one will argue with the fact that a special rug will allow you to achieve more comfortable work. And for sure, gamers who try to get the most accurate positioning and quick response cannot do without a rug. At the same time, not a single mouse pad can be called eternal – gradually the surface of the accessory wears out, which is why the appearance ceases to cause aesthetic pleasure. This is why mouse pads remain a hot commodity. You can easily find a lot of such accessories on the counter of the nearest store selling peripherals and other similar goods. However, not all rugs are of acceptable quality. If you want to get a convenient and cute accessory with a long service life, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with our selection. It consists exclusively of the best rugs available in Russian retail.

Corsair MM800 RGB Polaris
A very large and completely rigid rug. It is released by Corsair, a company known for its gaming manipulators. Of course, the carpet can be used in tandem with any other mouse, no matter what manufacturer was involved in its manufacture. This rug differs from competitors by its edging consisting of RGB LEDs. In a special application, you can customize its behavior – it can glow with one color or sparkle with all the colors of the rainbow. And if you're using a Polaris mouse with similar lighting, the colors of the two accessories can be synchronized.
There is a special block at the top of the mat. A cable comes out of it, which should be connected to a free USB port on the computer. Interestingly, this unit has its own USB-socket – we can say that the carpet also acts as an extension cord. The only pity is that the connector belongs to the slow USB 2.0 standard, so it's almost pointless to connect a flash drive to it (if your system unit is equipped with faster ports).
This rug is fabric. Buyers note that any mouse recognizes its surface well, resulting in very high positioning accuracy. The base of the mat is made of rubber, due to which the product does not slip at all even during the most exciting battles. The length and width of the accessory are 350 and 260 mm, respectively. Therefore, the rug turned out to be very large.
This is perhaps the most advanced mouse pad in our ranking. And it's a rare case that an accessory like this offers an LED surround that includes 15 individually configurable zones. It remains to be regretted that the cost of the rug is prohibitive – many computer owners would not give that kind of money even for a mouse, let alone an accessory for it! At the same time, the manufacturer did not bother to modify the software in which the backlight is configured. Someone does not start it when the operating system starts, someone refuses to see connected devices, someone suffers from other problems.
- High quality fabric cover;
- Rubber base;
- There is RGB backlighting;
- There is a USB port for peripherals.
- Very high cost;
- The software is unstable.
If you think about manufacturers of gaming peripherals, then the first thing that comes to mind is Razer. Its manipulators cost a lot of money, but they look impressive and offer a wide range of functionality. The range of the company is not limited to mice and keyboards. You can buy a Razer Firefly mat in many stores. Its main task is not to improve positioning, but to decorate the table. The fact is that this accessory is also equipped with RGB lighting along its edge. You can adjust the colors, the frequency of their change and the intensity of the glow using a special application. The product is connected to a computer via a USB cable. There is no native USB connector on the mat, so it cannot be used as an extension cable. The dimensions of the accessory are 355x255x3.5 mm. This rug can be safely called stationary. The fact is that it is made of plastic. It cannot be rolled up, which complicates transportation. However, this is not a problem – gaming mousepads are rarely taken out of the house.
The base of the accessory is rubber. Despite its light weight, the product practically does not slide on the table. There are no complaints about the build quality either. It seems that such a rug can serve a gamer for many years. The only drawback of this model is, of course, the price. Not everyone dares to pay 4500 rubles for a mouse pad. Namely, this is how much an accessory from Razer costs in Russian retail chains.
- RGB lighting with many glow options;
- The rug is as stable as possible;
- Clear positioning;
- Plenty of space for the mouse;
- The software works without any problems.
- Very high cost;
- The mat takes away one USB port from the user.
SteelSeries QcK Prism
Another mouse pad in our rating, which also has multi-colored backlighting. In this case, it is inside the contour, and not outside, which makes the product a little more unique from the outside. Also, the place where the USB cable is attached immediately attracts attention – it is not on the top, but on the left. However, this does not play a special role – a thin wire in any case should not interfere with the keyboard lying next to it. But its thickness inspires concern – will it break one day?
Like other RGB backlit mats, the SteelSeries QcK Prism is plastic. This means that it has a decent thickness. Even a very large one – it reaches 8.7 mm. If there is no place on the table for such a rug, then it is better not to buy it – you will not be able to place part of this accessory under the keyboard or something else. By the way, the width and length of the carpet are 357 and 292 mm, respectively.
As expected, the product has a rubber base. The surface is more interesting. The user can put on it the special fabric supplied. It will greatly increase the positioning accuracy. But you can leave the bare plastic surface – in this case the gamer will get better mouse sliding.
The behavior of the LEDs is adjustable in a dedicated application. In some games, the backlight behaves in a special way. The only drawback of the device is that it will not work on the computer on which Linux is installed. However, hardly any of the gamers use this operating system. You can find fault with the price – the cost of this model reaches 4100 rubles.
- Includes RGB lighting with unique behavior in some games;
- You can use cloth or plastic;
- The rubber base makes the product stable;
- Plenty of space for the mouse;
- The software works without interruption.
- The USB cable seems overly thin;
- Takes away one USB port from the user;
- High price.
ASUS ROG Sheath
As you know, ASUS releases new gaming devices from the ROG series every year. Laptops are in greatest demand – they have a nice look and impressive performance. The company also produces all kinds of accessories that can also be used by gamers. In particular, on store shelves, you can easily find a mouse pad called ASUS ROG Sheath. Unlike the previously mentioned models, this carpet does not have LED lighting, and its fabric surface allows you to twist the accessory into a tube.
It would seem that the absence of any electronics should have affected the price tag. However, the rug turned out to be very expensive – you are unlikely to find a store that would ask for less than 3100 rubles for it. Such money is demanded for large sizes, which are 440x900x3 mm. On such a carpet, you can place not only a mouse, but also a laptop, and even after that there will be free space! Also, the manufacturer decided to stitch the edges, which made the product as durable as possible.
The base of this accessory is made of rubber. No sliding on the table is observed. Well, the fabric surface contributes to perfect positioning – the mouse sensor 'sees' it well. The only serious drawback of the rug concerns its size. If you want to take an accessory with you to work, you will not be able to do this – it will take up too much space in the backpack (although it cannot be said that it will not fit). In a word, it is recommended to lay this rug on the table, after which it should never be moved from its place.
- Huge size;
- The edges are stitched;
- Excellent fabric surface;
- The rubber base prevents the product from sliding;
- Long service life.
- High price;
- You won't be able to take it somewhere with you.
SteelSeries QcK +
Another fairly large rug in our rating, but already close to a square shape. To be precise, the width and length of this carpet are 40 and 45 cm, respectively. You can't place a laptop on such an accessory, but you can easily take the product with you by twisting it into a tube and throwing it into your laptop bag. As you might guess, a fabric covering is applied here. From a distance it seems that it has a solid black color. But in fact, the texture of the coating is easily recognized, especially by the sensor of a high-quality mouse.
Like all other representatives of our rating, the mat has a rubber base. He does not crawl on the table at all, no matter how quickly you drive your manipulator. It should be noted that there is no drawing here. The product is decorated only with a corporate logo, and even that one is located in the lower left corner, almost without attracting attention. This means that the rug is suitable for absolutely everyone. After all, it is known that if an image is applied to an accessory, then some of the potential buyers will certainly not like it.
Unfortunately, the cost of the product still cannot be called adequate. RUB 1,500 for a piece of cloth and rubber? Someone will definitely chuckle when ordering an analog from an unnamed company in some Chinese online store. And it will go wrong, having received a product with a significantly shorter service life.
- The rubber base prevents the mat from slipping;
- Excellent fabric surface;
- Large enough size;
- It cleans well from dirt;
- Easy transportation.
- Not everyone will like the cost;
- After a few years, it can stratify.
A4Tech Bloody B-070
This representative of our rating is intended for fans of World of Tanks or any other similar game. The fact is that a tank is depicted on the fabric surface of the rug. Also, the product differs from the models discussed above due to its red edging. By the way, two versions of the accessory went on sale. The second is intended for fans of shooters, as its surface is decorated with a less understandable pattern, supplemented by the inscription 'Headshot'.
Perhaps this is exactly the case when many buyers will be cut off, as they are not at all satisfied with the images here. It is a pity that there is no way to get rid of him. But the rubber base does not cause such a feeling. It will delight any user, as it does not slide the product on the table at all. The dimensions of the accessory are 430x350x4 mm. That is, it is larger than a sheet of A4 paper, but a keyboard or laptop on such a rug, of course, will not fit. The product is rolled into a tube, so you can easily take it with you, for example, to work. Well, the cost of the rug is about 700 rubles. Quite acceptable, isn't it?
- Easy transportation;
- Good fabric surface;
- A rubber base is used;
- Very large size;
- There are several design options;
- Low cost.
- Images will not suit everyone;
- After a couple of years of use, the surface becomes less smooth.
The assortment of mouse pads is extremely large. However, many accessories are of inferior quality. The picture from them peels off after a month of use, and the texture is not recognized in the best way. Fortunately, there are also better quality products, which were described in this article. They will suit both gamers and ordinary users. Some of the rugs have a high enough price tag – you have to put up with it. However, this does not apply to all copies – we tried to tell about the available rugs. And now you know that now even rugs can have LED backlighting – the days when only keyboards and mice boasted of a multi-colored glow were gone. However, do not forget that RGB backlighting most often does not carry any functional role – you pay extra just to make your table more beautiful and memorable.
