I love the color and sleek design of this mouse pad! I originally ordered this to add some flare to my keyboard by placing the keyboard on top of it. Although that looked nice, it wasn’t functional. The aluminum material this is made of caused the keyboard to slide when typing, so I began using it as it was intended and found it did help the mouse move faster. I have had this mouse pad for over a year, and although it has a few scratches from typical use, it still looks good!
