"Overall, this is a fantastic mouse pad. If you are looking for a pad that is not ultra-slick, but rather offers a surface that delivers utmost precision, you will not go wrong with checking out the S&S."
"It comes as no surprise that Steelseries are a leader in their field - the S&S is a great example of their quality and how with the assistance of a squad of gamers they can tailor their products to suiting the needs of a specific audience. The S&S is the gamer's choice, in every game that I tested it with it didn't let me down and I felt at ease whilst using it."
"The SteelPad S&S Mousing Surface is a great choice for gamers and non-gamers alike, it offers excellent tracking, easy gliding and a thin profile that won't stress your wrist after long periods of use."
"S&S stands for Steel and SK. The reason is that Schroet Kommando (SK), one of the world's most well known Counter-Strike teams, designed it. When you have prize purses worth over $25,000 to be won, you cannot afford to have inadequate hardware."
"If I needed that extra edge or responsiveness out of my mouse with a huge surface, this pad would definitely be at the top of my shopping list. We rate it as the top mouse pad we have seen"
"I'd also have to give the crown to the S&S if you want to spend more to the tune of $40 as opposed to almost $50. It may seem like a lot for a mousepad, but it's worth it, rest assured."
"I have finally found the mousepad I have been looking for since I started gaming. I honestly can not think of any improvements that would make this product any better. It has excellent wear characteristics, excellent tactile feel, is planted firmly on the desk with no movement, and has plenty of space for any kind of mouse movement."
"The rule of thumb is that you get what you pay for, and the S&S is worth every cent. It performs strongly amongst the SteelPad range and easily outshines the rest of the competition."
On the top of the S&S there is a plastic coating that ensures minimal friction, for a smooth glide. This enhances your reaction when aiming in FPS games or moving fast in PVP (player versus player). This is the the edge you need for winning.
The S&S is the most popular hard plastic gaming mouse pad in the world. If you have ever tried it before, you know why.
The responsive plastic compound makes S&S incredibly consistent in any environment. Whether it’s cold, hot, humid or dry, the S&S retains the same shape and texture.
Engineered to be thin, flexible and firm, the S&S is easy to transport loved by gamers who travel to LANs, internet cafés, and competitions.
SteelSeries S&S is created for both laser and optical mice, which makes it versatile for every situation.
The backside of the SteelSeries S&S is made of rubber elements to ensure that the surface hasa steady and firm grip at all times. You never have to worry about missing that headshot due to a moving surface.
The S&S mousepad was our first product to ever be developed alongside a professional gaming team, being SK Gaming.
Among heaps of different custom mousepads, the SteelSeries S&S SK Edition was our first co-branded product to ever be available for purchase.
In spite of being released way back in 2003, the SteelSeries S&S remains the preferred gaming surface of many professional players to date, SK Gaming’s Robert “RobbaN” Dahlström being one.
The legendary SK Gaming lineup of 2003, who cashed in over $150,000 in tournament winnings that year, were all using the SteelSeries S&S.
