FREMONT, California — October 25, 2012 — Corsair®, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced a new range of gaming mouse mats, designed with durable, gaming-grade surfaces designed to maximize the performance of high-quality gaming mice like the Vengeance® Series laser gaming mice.
"Just as performance sports cars needs premium-quality tires in order to maximize performance on the road, a high-quality gaming mouse mat is essential to maximize the performance of gaming mice like the Vengeance laser gaming mice”, said Ruben Mookerjee, Vice President and General Manager of the Components Business Unit at Corsair. "Corsair gaming mouse mats are engineered from the ground-up to deliver the consistent performance that gamers demand, so they can focus on winning."
Two model ranges will launch initially: the Vengeance MM200, and Vengeance MM400.
The Vengeance MM200 mouse pad features a glide-optimized textile surface that has been carefully screened to ensure consistent tracking with any gaming mouse sensor. Features of the MM200 include fray-resistant edges, and a non-slip rubber base to prevent bunching or slipping during intense gameplay. The MM200 is available in four sizes, including extra large and wide formats, to suit different playing styles.
The Vengeance MM400 mouse mat features a tuned, low-friction polymer surface that has been engineered to provide outstanding glide and precise control, for pixel-accurate aiming. The surface is particularly effective when used with performance laser gaming mice, such as the Corsair Vengeance Series mice. The MM400 is available in a single, over-sized format with 957 cm2 of available gaming surface, to ensure you won’t run your mouse off the edge in a critical moment.
Pricing and Availability
The Corsair Vengeance MM200 and M400 mouse pads are backed by a 1-year limited warranty, and are available now from Corsair's worldwide network of authorized retailers and distributors. The suggested US retail prices are listed below.
MM200: Small $12.99; Medium/Large $14.99, Extra Large $24.99, Wide $16.99 MM400: $29.99.

The touch mouse is a species very different from gaming mice, eschewing total size as well as the number of buttons to provide a very mobile but still functional mouse. The main solution that these mice use is to incorporate the functionality of a touch pad, like those found on laptops, directly onto the mouse. TechSpot grabbed three of the main contenders, Microsoft’s Arc Touch, Mad Catz's Eclipse, and SpeedLink’s Cue Wireless Multitouch to see how well these mice do the job.
"When it comes to input peripherals and more specifically pointing devices, the options available to the end user are near limitless. Our most recent mouse reviews and roundups have had a heavy focus on gamers and enthusiasts, but it’s important to remember that not everyone falls into these particular demographics.
Today we'll be looking at three mice that aren’t necessarily as high-end or feature-packed as some we have previously tested. These wireless mice are smaller and simpler in what they entail, yet they all feature one distinct characteristic – touch sensitivity."
