I played many, many hours of Call Of Duty: Black Ops with Hades Acheron A3 and I loved every minute of it. Moving the mouse on the surface feels incredibly smooth and the movements feel precise. No matter how intense the gaming got, the Acheron A3 stayed in place almost as if it was glued down to my desktop. This is a huge plus plus for hardcore gamers. Even if all you do is general internet surfing, it is equally as smooth and enjoyable.

The Hades Acheron A3 Gaming Mousepad is quite large. Measuring 500mmx400mmx3mm. Being this large, the Acheron A3 can be used in any application and DPI mouse setting; you will not run out room.

I spend a lot of time on the computer surfing around and gaming. So, naturally I have drinks on my desk. I think you know where this going...I decided to pour some water in the center of the pad to see how long it would take to soak in. After 20 minutes I gave up because the water did not soak in at all. It just floated on top and wiped off completely dry.

On the next page, we'll take a look at the finish, texture and draw some final conclusions.
