The top surface feels just like the double sided ROCCAT Alumic’s Speed side, giving you the favorable gliding experience with your gaming mice. While not being as rigid at the Alumic, the middle support plate still provide certain level of support for not flipping over even being held by the corner.
We’ve tested the ROCCAT RAIVO with a Steelseries Xai and CM Storm Mizar on our daily routine and gaming session for several days. We have mixed feelings towards the ROCCAT RAIVO after the test, consists both pros and cons which will be further explained later on.
As for the cons, the ROCCAT RAIVO is sharp by the corner which will somewhat affect user’s experience because whenever our gaming mice gets slightly off the edge, the sharp corner is holding the mice by its feet. This will causes a slight delay for users to recover from it and any delay is fatal for any professional gamers. It requires time to get used to the size and keeping control of the area of movement to the center area, but the sharp corners has somewhat causes discomfort to sensitive users overtime.
To sum things up, the ROCCAT RAIVO is a pretty decent gaming mousepad for those who requires less movement and we would recommend it for those who seeks for a lower cost alternative of the Speed side of the ROCCAT Alumic, 95 Malaysian Ringgit – pretty much half of the price of the ROCCAT Alumic which the SRP is 155 Malaysian Ringgit.
