NOIDpad Custom Final Thoughts

If your looking for a high-quality mouse pad, you have two options. You can go with a hard-surfaced mouse pad (Ratpadz, Everglide Ricochet), or with a cloth pad (NOIDpad, Thermaltake XaserV Damier, Everglide Destrukt). Its really a matter of personal preference, and in the past hard-surface pads started to become very popular, but it seems like cloth pads are making a comeback.

The rubber grip on the back of the NOIDpad is very good, its impossible to make this pad slip around on your desk. The included NOID no-friction tape is also a nice feature, I've seen other similar products sold separately, and it definitely improves the overall performance. Our test pad featured the logo, and the quality of the printing is very good. Every mouse I tested glided very well, I was very happy with the performance with and without the no-friction tape.

In the past I've preferred hard-surfaced pads, but I'm definitely becoming a huge fan of cloth mats again. Normally when someone says they use a cloth mat, you think of that terrible first mouse pad you had, the one that worked ok for about a month, then the corners started to lift, it became dirty, and eventually didn't work very well at all. Those days are gone, the NOIDpad is definitely a mouse pad I don't mind using.

After using the NOIDpad custom, I really can't think of anything I don't like about it. The price of a NOIDpad isn't too bad, some other gaming pads are a little cheaper, but for a high-quality gaming mat with your custom logo on it, $35-40 CDN is not bad. The only thing I can even mention is the edges of the NOIDpad are a little frayed. I'm not saying that this is a major problem, or even a issue at all, I'm just mentioning it because I noticed it. Quite frankly it does not bother me at all, and I've seen the same issue on a couple other cloth gaming mats, and really with this being the biggest issue I could even think of, you know its a good product.


  • Large Surface Area
  • Rubber grip on bottom eliminates slipping
  • Mouse glides very nicely
  • Very good logo quality 


  • Very Minor Fraying on edges (VERY VERY MINOR) 


In the end, I have been very impressed with the NOIDpad Custom. Every mouse I used glides very nicely, it has a very large surface area, and its rubber bottom makes slipping impossible. I would definitely recommend this pad to anyone looking for a high-quality gaming mat. Rating
