Razer Announces Dual-sided Vespula Mousepad

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 29 comments

Razer, the company that loves to make all sorts of funky gaming mice for those obsessive about mousing in PC gamers, this week unveiled the Vespula. The selling feature for this mousepad is a dual-sided surface offering gamers a choice between smooth and crunchy, just like for peanut butter.

"The Razer Vespula was designed with gamers in mind that need a single solution for every game they play. Different genres call for different gameplays. The advanced technology in the improved dual-sided mouse mat gives gamers the choice of a smooth Speed Surface or a textured Control Surface, which delivers just that flexibility," said Robert Krakoff, president, Razer USA. "The Control Surface is great for gamers that use small, precise movements, while the Speed Surface is an ideal match for gamers that prefer large, sweeping motions."

The Vespula also comes with a gel-filled memory conformance rest for tired wrists. The premium mousepad is priced at $34.99 in the U.S. and €34.99 in the EU.

We're a fan of dual-sided mousepads, which first caught our attention from fUnc's Surface 1030 mousepads.

    I've had a dual-sided Rocketfish mouse pad for quite a while now and I like it a lot.

    A lot cooler looking than the eXactMat which cost about the same price.

    I was thinking the opposite, the eXactMat looks better IMO. I was about to buy one, actually, but now that this is here I will buy the one that gets the best review of the two.

    Ive had the eXactMat for about a year and have been very pleased with it. I like this one too, though.

    Me too, had it about 3 years and it's great. Razor is a bit late to the game on this one.

    $35 is pretty expensive for a mousepad but I don't think they are completely ripping you off for all that they are giving you. Razer = XFX in terms of quality as seen in the products and packaging.

    ha! this mouse pad has nothing on the MacPadd. just wait until toms gets theirs in the mail......oh wait.

    Seriously though, I would think you would need to clean the pad off every time you switch sides... I live in a dorm and my desk does not stay clean all of the time. I love the concept though.

    fanscaleI've got one that's a thin sheet, sticky on the bottom side. It's got a photo of a kitten on it.My desk is small so I don't want anything large and clunky.

    Same here, I use a 6"x9" cloth mousepad that's just plain gray on the top. It is already sufficient enough for me.
