MODTHEBOX would like to thank Clare from Vantec for sending the Spectrum Mouse Pad for review.

Vantec Spectrum Mousepad


Mice pads remain popular with the gaming community used primarily as tools for tracking and movement. There is currently a wide selection of mice pads available from different manufacturers offering unique designs, performance and features. As part of its expanding product line, Vantec has added a brand new mouse pad to its Spectrum line of computer peripherals. The Spectrum Mouse Pad offers sleek looks combined with blue cold cathode lamps and is powered through the USB port with the included custom USB power adapter. Today in the MTB Labs, we will be evaluating the Spectrum Mouse Pad, a mousing surface that combines aesthetic looks with good tracking performance.


The Vantec Spectrum Mouse Pad is currently the only available mouse surface offered by Vantec and rivals other gaming pads that are readily available online. The Spectrum Mouse Pad is designed to bring an enhanced precision mouse surface for both optical and traditional ball mice for a variety of different computing environments. Here are some specifications taken directly from the Vantec website:

The Vantec Spectrum Mouse Pad arrived in a formed oval blister display package with specifications and dimensions printed on a divider board. On the opposite side of the package, consumers can get a good look at the included USB power cable coiled in its own compartment.

The Vantec Spectrum Mouse Pad is made from a blue PVC plastic which consists up a upper and clear bottom shell screwed together in different five areas. On top of the mouse pad is a black round PVC mousing surface that measures approximately 18 cm in diameter. At the top of the lower arch is the familiar white Vantec logo, which appears to have been silk screened onto the surface of the unit.
