Razer is back with a Version 2 (v2) of their Razer Gigantus mouse mat that we reviewed here previously on Ragequitters so we were keen to get our hands on the follow-up version for review.
I’ll be frank and say mouse mats reviews aren’t exactly the most sexy PC ‘peripheral’ you can review but for me it falls into the same category as a decent PSU for your rig – the devil is in the detail and ignoring it will penalise your overall gaming experience.
With those mandatory words of wisdom out of the way, let’s have a quick overview of what we are reviewing today.
Firstly, it’s great that Razer have simplified your purchasing decision into something no more complex this time than selecting a t-shirt size (no ‘elite’, ‘black’ or ‘team razer’ terminology this time); the Razer Gigantus v2 comes in M, L. XXL and 3XL sizes.
|Medium||360 mm / 14.17 in||275 mm / 10.83 in||3 mm / 0.12 in|
|Large||450 mm / 17.72 in||400 mm / 15.75 in||3 mm / 0.12 in|
|XXL||940 mm / 37 in||410 mm / 16.14 in||4 mm / 0.15 in|
|3XL||1200 mm / 47.24 in||550 mm / 21.65 in||4 mm / 0.15 in|
