You may wonder why a mousemat ever needed to be reviewed such as the SteelSeries QcK and QcK+ Limited Edition. The thing is, mouse mats have come a long way since the days of those spongy blue ones we all had in IT class. They look better, are made of more improved materials and are specially designed to work with the lasers in your gaming mice for improved accuracy and precision.
A decent gaming mouse mat or surface is the difference between getting that headshot or missing it.
The SteelSeries QcK+ which is the largest version and the QcK being the normal sized are both micro-woven cloth, with a high thread count (like decent towels) which is meant to improve accuracy and traction across the surface. Combined with a non-slip base, it should be a pretty decent area to rest your mouse on, keeping stuck to the desk and glide like a bird.
