I've always been using my table. However, I've been playing with my tablet for the last couple of years now so that doesn't matter any longer.
I personally used laminated table, but because I started traveling a lot (with laptop), the table surface varies a lot and I had to get adjusted to that most of time. I also sometimes had to use newspaper as well. Not really a good experience, in which I learned that I really need a mousepad.Grippy it may be, but the Control version actually has less static and kinetic friction than the Speed edition. At least for Teflon mouse skates.
So I had to borrow Razer Goliathus Omega (Control Edition) from my brother once in a while, which is not really bad. I was thinking that I might get my own mousepad, and I'm considering Razer Goliathus Omega (Speed Edition) or anything similar because I prefer the smooth surface over the gripping surface from the Control Edition.
I started to get myself hooked with Steelseries QcK Mini. So far so good.I'm planning to buy QcK Mini since my standard QcK is tearing up and I don't like my Goliathus... I guess the mini version is great since I do less effort in reaching my tablet, therefore more comfort while playing tablet.
