Mouse pad design by Motivatebox

The world’s first computer mouse was invented by Douglas Engelbart in the early 60’s. As the days went on, mouse pads were also invented for the smooth functioning of the mouse. The three important uses of the introduction of the mouse pad were higher speed, more precision, and comfort of the mouse by the user. Another benefit was keeping the surface of the table free from all the scratches worn by continuous hand and mouse rubbing motion. This also included the reduction of the collection of dirt under the mouse around the rolling balls, and that resulted in reduced jitter of the pointer on the display screen.

In Motivate Box, we have a great variety of mouse pads, made with many different textured surfaces, suitable for various types of mouse technologies.

Usually, Modern mouse pads are made of low-density rubber composites with a layer of fabric bonded to the upper surface. However, many other types of material have been used, such as fabric, plastics, leather, glass, cork, aluminum, stone and stainless steel. We also have some of the greatest high-quality gaming pads that are usually made from plastic, glass and high-tech fibers.

Apart from all of these differences, one can easily categorize the mouse pads into two types namely,

  • Hard mouse pad and
  • Soft mouse pad

But, you must be wondering about the difference between a soft mouse pad and a hard mouse pad. Each mouse pad has its own functionalities. Basically,.based on the work you do and where you do it, various pads are used. With an optical mouse a mouse pad isn’t really necessary, but still, there are people who prefer the surface of their favorite mouse pad than to surface of a desk.

Soft Mouse Pad

This one has a padded backing and mostly made of foam or rubber composite, with a layer of fabric cover over it. This textured surface will be ideal for the roller-ball mouse, to glide across. But still, it works well for the currently more popular optical mouse, that can also be used with a hard mouse pad. The only difference is that a soft mouse pad gives the user a bit of cushioning under the mouse.


Hard Mouse Pad

Generally, a hard mouse pad has a rubber backing and a smooth plastic surface. The plastic surface can be easily cleaned. Hard mouse pads work well with optical mice and laser mice and also gives one the advantage of precise mouse movements. As we have seen, optical mice work well with either hard or soft mouse pads, the laser mouse performs better on the hard mouse pads. Hard mouse pads are also often cheaper than soft pads.


What Works Best?

Now, for the final question. Which mouse pad worked best for the majority?. If you have an optical mouse, then both of the mouse pads should do the trick, but still one may feel better than the other because of every individual’s personal preference. However, if the mouse you use is designed for gaming or any other purpose like that, then a hard mouse pad will provide greater precision for quick and accurate movements.
