    I got the medium non-stiched one. It was 9 bucks on amazon and i had some amazon cash to use. I read that the edges might start peeling up, however If i liked the pad enough, i would switch to stiched when that happened. My G402 was starting to wear down to the white polymer/plastic that sits underneath the black hard surface and it was seriously messing with my aim because the lazer would be tracking, pause a bit, and then continue. It was awful.

    this one you mean? your link didnt work.

    This looks exactly like the much more expensive Steelseries QCK+

    Ive never used cloth pads before for fear of losing my twitch ability in FPS games, but this far exceeded my expectations. I had to tune my mouse a bit, but its perfect now.

    3 days of A9s. I know they're relatively safe, but TO reports just enough rejects to keep me up at night.

    If you aren't doing them in IE you are fine.

    A9s rejected a ton of people that did hits in IE on bounding box hits. Apparently it gave them blank data or some :emoji_poop:.

    Some people who turk at work are stuck using it. If you somehow managed to bumble your way into working on mturk while using IE for a home-based account, I don't even know what to say. It seems kinda like it should be impossible, though given the way some people turk, I wouldn't doubt it.
