We can’t deny that RGB is the current trend right now when it comes to PC components, accessories, and peripherals and it looks like it’s gonna stay for a while. A lot of manufacturers are focusing on implementing RGB lighting to almost every product possible, some even are committed to making a complete ecosystem for their products taking advantage of this trend.
While RGB lighting doesn’t really increase the performance of our system, some of us including myself just can’t help but include at least one or two RGB components on our system to make it even more interesting and pleasing to the eye.
There are a ton of available RGB peripherals out there but what we have here today, is a very simple yet appealing RGB mousepad from Tecware. It’s very appealing that after its release, people rushed and bought a ton and almost had the stocks ran out. Why you ask? Let’s find out!
MY EARLY BREAKDOWN
Pros: Super affordable, Decent quality
High-density smooth fabric surface
WHAT’S IN THE PACKAGE
Tecware Haste XL RGB Mousepad
Micro USB Cable
The packaging is quite simple, just a regular box and inside it is the Tecware Haste XL RGB Mousepad itself and the detachable micro USB cable. The mousepad is rolled inside the box which is a good sign that there would be no fold marks and that we can lay it properly flat on the surface.
Design and Features
The design is pretty straightforward, it’s a standard extended mousepad with RGB lining around it and a control box at the top-left part. The control box has a very subtle “Tecware” branding on the center and beside it, is the control button that has a clicky and tactile feedback.
Close up look at the materials used
At the back of the mousepad, we have, of course, the anti-slip rubber base to keep the mousepad stay in place. It has a standard 3mm thickness.
When it comes to the surface, the material used is high-density fabric which is very smooth while still offering a little bit of resistance. If you’re used to fast gliding and flicks, this is the mousepad for you, but if you prefer more control, you may need some adjustment when you decide to get this one.
Here’s a close up look at the surface so you can see exactly how the weaving is formed.
One of the selling points of the Tecware Haste XL RGB is, of course, its RGB lighting.
Unfortunately, there’s no software or remote to control the lighting modes. You can only change the lighting modes using the button on the top-left control box.
The brightness of the RGB lighting is decent, it’s not the brightest but for me, it’s very acceptable.
Now RGB is one thing but performance is another much more important factor, I’ve got the Tecware Haste XL RGB mousepad for a while now and for me personally, I have no problems with the traction. The smoothness of the surface is at just the right amount for me with a little bit of control. It’s slippier than what I’m used to but after a while playing with it and configuring my mouse settings, I was easily able to adjust.
The reason why the Tecware Haste XL RGB is very appealing is because of its price point like I said, it is only around 900 pesos, and for that price, you’ll be hard pressed to find a decent extended mousepad with RGB lighting on it. The lighting modes may be limited but that’s acceptable given the price and it’s still very capable with 7 different colors and a couple of color cycling modes. For sure it will suit most of the color scheme your thinking of implementing on your setup. The quality of the materials used is also good especially with the stitching and the high-density fabric. Overall, I am satisfied with this and will use it until I need to test another mousepad.
