    Icemat Black 2nd Edition Review - The Icemat Cometh


    (Page 2 of 4 )

    The Icemat arrived wrapped in plain brown shipping paper.  This is good, since a lot of manufacturers slap a shipping label on their commercial packaging, giving everyone in the world a clear picture of exactly what it is sitting on your doorstep waiting for you to get home.  In the brown package, as far as anyone knows, it could be the next edition of "101 New Ways To Cook Roadkill."  This makes it more likely to be still sitting on your porch when you come home.

    Getting the box out of the paper it was shipped in, it's immediately clear that this is not your average mouse pad.  The key features are listed on the box, as follows:

    • Long-lasting
    • Solid and steady
    • Looks damn cool
    • Amazing accuracy
    • Very comfortable to use
    • Doesn't bend or lose shape
    • Dimension 250 x 300 mm - 10 x 12 inch

    The first thing that sticks out is the line that says "Looks damn cool."  Here's a company not afraid to show a little attitude about its products.  Some people appreciate this kind of candor in a company, myself being one of them.

    The other thing that caught my eye is the size: 10 x 12 inches.  Wow, this is a pretty large product.  Let's open the box already!

    Inside we find the Icemat 2nd Edition itself, as well as a couple extras.  In the above picture, I show the Icemat lying upside down so you can see the six soft rubber-like feet that it rests on.  Also in the box are what Icemat calls "Padsurfers."

    One thing I haven't mentioned yet about this product is that it is made of glass.  The bottom is smooth, as you would expect glass to be, but the actual mouse surface appears to be frosted, giving the Icemat a very cool and unique look.

    The photo above does not capture how cool this product really looks.
