Just when you thought that all mousepads were more or less the same — to provide an adequate and decent gaming surface for the masses where every single flick of the mouse will see the cursor or crosshair go where it is intended to go, here comes SteelSeries to upset the proverbial apple cart. The QcK Prism gaming mousepad from SteelSeries is truly something that is different from the rest, where it has been built with the purpose of delivering far more than performance as it boasts of the aesthetics of illumination while gaming on your PC.
This particular new mousepad will come with dual-sided premium surfaces, making it the first of its kind in the world. There will be 360 degrees of continuous illumination across 12 separate zones, as well as interference-free USB cable placement for a truly unique gaming experience. Since this is the first mousepad of its kind in the world, boasting of a premium micro-textured cloth which will add friction for more deliberate movements as well as a hard polymer surface for a fast-paced glide on the other side, it really depends on the genre of the game that you are playing.
As for the aforementioned 360-degree, 12-zone Prism RGB illumination with advanced lighting effects? It will feature support for the SteelSeries GameSense, as it delivers reactive illumination to in-game events — letting you know that you are running low on ammunition, or to keep a lookout for the health bar, number of kills, cooldown timers, among others. SteelSeries Prism Sync is also thrown into the mix, allowing gamers to enjoy dynamic multi-color lighting effects between the QcK Prism and all other Prism-enabled gear, such as the Arctis 5 headset, Rival 700 mouse and Apex M800 keyboard. Certainly this is one of the cooler mousepads that you can carry to any BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) events. Nice to see that SteelSeries has also ensured the cable housing remains out of the way on the left side, where it will not interfere with a gamer’s mouse cable.
