Awesome mousepad May 26, 2011
The picture is totally misleading. I got two first impressions from that top picture that ended up being false, but went with it anyways when I saw so many (+) reviews:
1. This product does NOT have huge bumps all over it, this is just a stylistic graphic.
2. This product is NOT clear, but is opaque so you can put it over a glass surface like what I did
Overall, I would describe this mousepad as:
1. Thin, and stiff, but overall still bend-able. It is NOT made of foam, which helps give the mouse good feedback.
2. Finely granular surface that I find appealing
3. Low friction to allow easy mouse movement
4. Adhesive backing that prevents mousepad movement. If you forget about this adhesive backing, and leave the sticker on it like I did, the mousepad will move all over the place because it is so low friction.

Thin, and stays put, but texture takes getting used to Mar 30, 2011
By Edward Barnett
Most mouse pads suffer one of two problems. The old-fashioned neoprene mouse pads (the ones that are about 1/4" thick) are too thick to be ergonomically comfortable. The newer "flat" mouse pads (which are basically just a thin piece of plastic) tend to slip and slide around the desktop.
This 3M mouse pad tries to find a compromise. It's very thin, but has post-it adhesive on the back to keep it from sliding around your desk. Clever design. I've never had a problem with post-its leaving residue on my desk, so I'm not worried about that. On the other hand, I also suspect that the post-it adhesive will become non sticky pretty quickly if you travel with this mouse pad and are constantly putting it down on new surfaces with a bit of dust on them. Time will tell.
The reason for my "OK but not great" star rating is that the surface of the mouse pad is strange. It's very grainy/pebbly. Presumably this is what lets optical mice use less battery power, but it feels odd. It's noisy compared to a regular mouse pad -- it's makes a sort of sawing sound as you run the mouse over it. I haven't suffered "thumb abrasion" (as one other reviewer called it), but I'm also not a really heavy mouse user.
Bottom line: Intriguing idea, but this is one product that I'd suggest you find an opportunity to try in person at a retail store before buying.

Awesome product Mar 24, 2010
By S. Chang
It's super thin, so it's ergonomic for your wrists. It has repositionable adhesive, so it won't move around and drive you crazy. The surface is designed for Optical Mouse. (It even saves the battery for wireless mouse).
I use it with my Magic Mouse. It's just awesome.
Best mouse pad ever

Great design--thin, no slide, and excellent tracking Oct 30, 2010
By Paul J. Ste Marie
I've owned a number of 3M's "mousing surface"s over the years, and this is the best yet. It's very thin--1/32" or less, and doesn't get in the way of keyboards, your wrist, coffee cups, etc. The back has a low-tack adhesive, like a Post-It note, so it stays perfectly flat and doesn't slide around, but you can easily lift it up and move it around.
The surface texture is less aggressive than the older versions, but optical mice track perfectly and I imagine a mechanical one would, too. The size is nice, although it might be a bit better if it was arced a bit and not a rectangle. Overall, it's just about perfect.

Size???? Apr 26, 2010
Product description states it is 8.1 in x 9.2 in. That is the size of the packaging. The mouse pad is 7 in x 8.5 in. I was hopping for some larger.
