5 out of 5 eggsDoes the job right

Pros: I've been using this product for several years now, I've gone through several packs. Its a much cheaper alternative than going with more expensive mouse feet, and it does the job right. Changing them is easy, it leaves no sticky residue on your mouse.

Cons: They have to be replaced every few weeks depending on how many games you play or what not. Occasionally when peeling them off the backing they will roll up making it difficult to apply, i find it best to fold the backing back and remove them so they don't curl as much

Other Thoughts: I use an Icemat 2nd Edition black, with a Razer deathadder and 3 of these pads on my mouse, and it works like a dream. I replace every 2-3 weeks when they start to go thin.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: NONE

Cons: Too thin and too big. This is a terrible product. I had to use 2 layers of these to get it to slide decently. Whoever thought that this would be a good product obviously has never used it!

Other Thoughts: Waste of money. Can definetly find much better products for less money!

4 out of 5 eggsSlick and cheap

Pros: Works as advertised. Slick. Makes the mouse glide like it's on ice. Enough in a package to last a very long time.

Cons: Very thin and hard to work with.

Other Thoughts: I have had my Logitech MX1000 for almost four years and I have been using mouse skates on since I got it. My old mouse pad was hard plastic and ate through the ones I had previously. I recently purchased a SteelSeries cloth pad and these skates make a perfect combo. It's like a whole new mouse! I play a lot of FPS games and smooth mouse movement is critical. These skates do not disappoint.

1 out of 5 eggsWaste of Money

Pros: Not one

Cons: Microns thin. You will go through at least a couple of them trying to get them to not roll up on themselves. They lasted about a month and are completely useless now. There's a reason you get 36 of them and it's not because you have nine mice.

Other Thoughts: Pull all the feet off your mouse and go buy a WowPad. The plastic of the mouse gliding on the WowPad is 10x as slick as the MadDotz and even the original feet.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent

Pros: Basically got these because I have a Razer Mamba mouse and a Destructor mousepad. I had heard that the Destructor has problems with wearing down, so I bought these to try to extend its lifetime. I would've bought new feet, except I could not find any packages that would fit a Mamba.
I found them easy to peel from the backing, but fairly difficult to apply since they curl up on themselves. They are also very easy to cut to shape while they're still on the backing.

Cons: 1. Pretty difficult to apply correctly. They curl up on themselves, making it a bit tricky to get them to flatten out with no bubbles or anything.
2. As a perfectionist, I had to go through a lot of trial and error with cutting these. I didn't want any part of the dots to extend to the sides of my mouse, so I had to cut to the curvature of the outside. Also, my mouse has a fair amount of stuff on the underside which I didn't want to obstruct, so I had to cut around that as well. Finally, my mouse has one large foot in the back which is too long for one dot to cover, so I had to do some complicated cutting using a total of 3 dots to achieve near-100% coverage.
3. Did not notice any improvement in smoothness. This is probably largely due to the fact that I'm using a high-performance mouse and mousepad to begin with, though.
4. Started to slow down the mouse after a little over a week. Had to put on a new set

Other Thoughts: These are nice to reduce the wear on your mousepad, but think of them as consumable products. Their performance WILL degrade over time and you WILL need to replace them every week or so.
If this process is worth the trouble to you, then I would recommend these as they are pretty nifty when they're applied correctly and not yet peeling off.

3 out of 5 eggslame-ish

Pros: work

Cons: barely; very thin teflon tape circles. Tough to peel off, and are very peel-y (want to roll up on themselves).

Other Thoughts: I wish I had gotten some thicker teflon "bumps" that have more substance

1 out of 5 eggsWaste of Money and Time

Pros: - Slick
- Fit over existing mouse feet (Sometimes, dependent upon your mouse)

Cons: - Peal off easily.
- Don't fit over my existing mouse feet/glides. (Logitech G5)
- Hard to remove from the film. You will destroy a couple of dots removing them from the film.

Other Thoughts: I have several XTRAC pads which I really like, so I figured I'd give these a try. I put them on my Logitech G5 mouse and they pealed off within a couple of days. Waste of money IMO. I could have (and should have) bought replacement feet for the same price.

2 out of 5 eggsNot for heavy use

Pros: They are very slick and can be applied right over your old mouse feet.

Cons: THEY PEAL OFF!!!!!!! not right away mind you, but within a few weeks. Even if it doesn't peal off right away, if they are on long enough they loose their slickness and start to stick.

Other Thoughts: I use AutoCAD, and put my old logitech dual optical through heavy abuse daily. The old feet were worn out or MIA so I bought these to replace/enhance the feet that where left. These things don't stick very well and I find that I have to replace at least one on a weekly basis. Look for another option or get a new mouse.

4 out of 5 eggsworks but...

Pros: noticed easier mouse gliding though not as smooth as oil as i predicted. i used 2 for the left/right top on top and 3 overlapping dots at the bottom to cover the pads of my g3 logitech and that makes movement a little bit rough so i ended up just using two. last long when only used on a smooth surface.

Cons: have to be real slow to separate the film from the dots or they would easily stick together.. wasn't as thick as i expected. also didn't taste like fruit rollups.

Other Thoughts: buy fruit rollups before opening these or you would get the worst craving ever.

4 out of 5 eggsLovem So Far

Pros: Very smooth very slick

Cons: Not easy to remove for placement, I'm using a new MX Revolution mouse and a Razor Pro solutions mouse board, It's a awesome match !

Other Thoughts: They were actually harder to remove from the plastic, then before I cut them to match my mouse feet.
