The Logitech G640 gaming mouse pad has been a personal favorite of mine ever since I first used the neoprene printer pads sold by Fry’s Electronics. It offers ample room for slow sensitivity with wide mouse movements, as well as catering to those who prefer high sensitivity gameplay.
Packaged in a Logitech hexagonal box, the mouse pad pleasantly surprised me by remaining flat without any issues upon unboxing. Its surface has a smooth texture, providing excellent control. Comparing it to the SteelSeries QCK Heavy, the G640 features a tighter weave and a slight shine. Throughout various tests, the mouse pad demonstrated consistent performance from edge to edge, with no changes in surface feel or mouse drag.
On the underside, the Logitech G640 boasts a Logitech Blue rubber grip that adheres securely to the table surface. Even during a week of intensive gameplay, I encountered no problems with the pad bunching up or shifting.
Comfort and Performance:
During gameplay, I rest my full arm on the table, with most of my forearm on the mouse pad. Surprisingly, the pad doesn’t trap arm hair, ensuring comfort during extended gaming sessions.
The Logitech G640 performed excellently with the Logitech G703 mouse, allowing smooth gliding and accurate sensor tracking without any snags. With the SteelSeries Rival 600 mouse, the movement felt slightly slower than the G703, but still smooth, providing better control for precise aiming adjustments. As for the Zowie EC2-A mouse, it glided fastest on the G640 surface, but produced some noise during movement, likely due to the combination of its hollow body, lighter weight, and possibly the material used for the mouse feet. Nevertheless, it did not significantly affect gameplay experience.
The Logitech G640 proved to be a pleasure to game on, leading me to replace my SteelSeries QCK Heavy as my primary mouse pad.
I plan to update this review shortly, comparing the Logitech G640 with my SteelSeries QCK Heavy, and potentially exploring the purchase of a BenQ Zowie G-SR mouse pad.
The Logitech G640 is undeniably a fantastic gaming mouse pad. Although it is marketed to work best with Logitech G Mice, it should work well with most mice without any issues. My only disappointment is that, considering the $40 price tag (which I find a bit overpriced), Logitech should have included stitched edges to prevent fraying over time and perhaps thrown in a few stickers.
For those looking for alternatives, the well-reviewed BenQ ZOWIE G-SR Mouse Pad is available for $30, or you can opt for the SteelSeries mouse pad, which is priced at $11.99.
