Best Budget RGB Gaming Mousepads Under $30

RGB mouse pads are becoming very popular I see it a lot on my setup or show and eventually I feel like everything is gonna be RGB we have RGB faucets hell even our toilets are becoming RGB but you know what not everybody has 60 dollars to spend on a premium ruv mousepad so I went on Amazon and looked over a bunch of RGB mouse pads under $30 and I bought the ones with the most reviews and the highest ratings with the exception of the extended mouse pad which was only two dollars over the budget because of the size so I'm gonna go over them until you guys what I like and don't like from each one starting with the blade hocks so I picked this up for $27 and it's a regular-sized mouse pad with a hard surface however it does have a micro textured finish which is nice I do prefer this texture over aluminum because it's not too cold to the touch and it doesn't hurt your hand when dragging it around there are no drivers for these mouse pads so you control the lighting with the buttons on the actual pad itself so the power button does two things you can either control the three-level brightness via short press or turn off the lighting via long press the other button controls the lighting you get seven static colors one RGB rainbow effect and one full sating effect that goes through all seven colors it's built really well and you get four rubber feet on the bottom to help keep it in place now the cable that comes with the mousepad is braided and it's the ugliest cable I have seen I have no idea what the design team was thinking going with this color for an RGB mousepad something so small and dumb like this can be a deal-breaker for some people now there is a fix to this if the cable messes up with your color scheme I recommend positioning the mousepad sideways and running the cable underneath your keyboard or you can always drill a hole in the desk and route it that way if it bothers you that much the lighting on the mousepad isn't the best either you can clearly see hot spots throughout the main source of light is directly in the center of each side and you can kind of see the light slowly fade towards the sides it's not as noticeable if you keep the RGB lighting effect on the lighting also doesn't go all around the mousepad it kind of stops near the top on both sides one thing I like about the mousepad is that water resistant so if you spill any liquid on it you can easily wipe it off and for the most part cleaning it is also very easy using a cloth just make sure you use a lint roller afterwards to get the fabric pieces off of it you know if it wasn't for the obvious hot spots on here not to mention this ugly green braided cable I would have given it a 4.5 but this is a solid four out of five for me next mousepad is from enhance and this one costs $30.00 it has a smooth aluminum surface there is no friction like the last mousepad and because of this it's really easy to slide the mouse around making it great for those fast-paced games now the mousepad does have a design on the surface which also lights up and this could be a deal-breaker for some people who prefer a cleaner look the pad is slightly thinner than the previous one but it doesn't really affect the build quality I do like that they cover the entire back with a rubber mat instead of just putting rubber feet in the corners and in the center the buttons are also right on the mousepad itself now it does the same thing like the previous one and it has the exact same colors and effects with hot spots in the same places as well unfortunately the lights don't get that bright but if you're playing in low lights most of the time then it shouldn't matter one thing I do like about this mousepad is the cable they stuck with neutral colors but it's also detachable so you can use any other micro USB cable out there it doesn't say if the mousepad is water-resistant but if you spill stuff on it you should be fine it's also very easy to clean the surface because it's aluminum the lighting might be weak on here and the design might be a turn-off a lot of people but other than that there isn't much I dislike about this I give it a solid 4 out of 5 next up we have the cheapest argued mousepad on the list coming in at just $20 and for good reason the build quality is surprisingly pretty good despite the price now the surface is hard but it's not aluminium it kinda has this texture to it so it's not as smooth dragging the mouse around it does have some rubber feet in the back and the only way you control the lighting is from the single touch sensitive button you only get six colors this time but you do get three lighting effects the hot spots on this mousepad are very bad and not only that but the lighting is very weak and it's hardly noticeable in a well-lit room unless you're someone who's gaming at night only this is probably a deal-breaker for you the mousepad also scratches easily so I would avoid putting sharp things next to it it is water-resistant and since the surface is hard cleaning it should be really easy you know they definitely cut a lot of corners to bring the price down to $20 and it definitely shows I give this mousepad a solid two out of five now this next mousepad from red dragon plus the previous one to shame this one goes for $22 but I feel like it does most of the things right the build quality is really good we got rubber feet in the back and a hard polymer surface with the texture just like the previous mousepad however this one doesn't bother my hand as much when sliding the mouse around the cable is detachable and braided which is great and for the most part it's a clean-looking mousepad with a transparent logo in the corner what I love about this mousepad is the lighting I feel like red dragon does it the best the hot spots aren't that noticeable and the lighting is spread out more evenly compared to the previous mouse pads they also get really bright with four different levels the downside is you only get three solid color options either red green or blue however you do get breathing options for the rest of the colors like purple teal and white and finally you get two color cycle effects the mousepad surface is waterproof and it's easy to clean however can get scratched because of the texture so be careful with that I'm pretty impressed for twenty dollars this is a solid RGB Gaming Mouse I just wish they had more solid color options other than blue green and red all the other colors are pulsating which makes no sense but because of that I can't give it a solid five however I can give it a four point five so this next mousepad is a straight copy of the enhanced mousepad with two key differences first of all it has a different design obviously and the detachable cable has a female USB port so you can actually hook up a mouse or a headset to it your hard to be lighting the surface material build quality I mean everything else is practically identical however this one cost one dollar more I give this mousepad the same rating as the other one at four out of five this third mousepad from enhanced are for those who prefer a more minimalistic design so the surface is pure aluminum so it's always gonna be cold to the touch so if you're someone who always has warm or sweaty hands then this can help cool you down the downside to this mousepad is that it can scratch the rubber feet underneath your mouse and it doesn't really offer a smooth traction compared to the their surfaces also there are no buttons on the mousepad so you can't control the RGB lighting you only get the default rainbow effect this is kind of a hit or miss for some people out there depending on what Mouse they're using and honestly for $30 I kind of expected something more especially for something that you can't even control the RGB lighting on last not least we have an extended soft RGB mousepad due to the size it's gonna cost you a few dollars more so I picked this up for $32 the build quality is really good the stitching on the sides seemed to hold up very well so far and it has a detachable braided cable I don't like the placement of the cable though I wish it was directly in the center so that I can route the cable with my keyboard it's also a short cable so depending on where you put your PC it might not reach it now the lighting is pretty good I was obviously expecting some hot spots due to the length of the mousepad you can see that the corners are the brightest areas but it does spread evenly as it travels across the sides it's nothing too distracting as far as the lighting you get seven solid color choices and three effects the one downside is that you don't get to control the brightness but they are very bright even in a well-lit room you can also turn off the lights if you want now the surface just like any other cloth mousepad gets dirty easily especially from dead skin cells however they are really easy to clean with some hot water and soap I think there were two or three large RGB mouse pads and this is the only one with the most reviews and the highest ratings so you guys are looking for a large soft hard mousepad then this is the best one you can get right now on Amazon I give it a solid 4.5 and that does it for my list of the best RGB mouse pads on there $30 I drop a link to everything mentioned in this video and
