The mousepads come wrapped in plastic packages so they are well protected during shipping. The color of the pads is green, light green, grey, and black which are the Mionix main colors. The 400 pad can be compared vs a XXL pad from Qpad which means it is very big, while the 320 is more of a normal size.

The top coat is made out of cloth while the bottom is a rubber pad which really keeps it in place on the table. I am not able to push it around at all which means it won’t move around when you play games. The cloth coating has some kind of plastic under it and when the pad is cut out it has left sharp edges which hurts the wrist when you use the mouse.

    Great review! Maybe it will be easier to align the monitors if the both are the same model.
