Compared to a standard mouse pad that just acts as a thin base, XPG Battleground XL Prime is different. The challenge is to set this on a small table. Not every gamer has wide desk space, like me who sits on a standard desk with a platform enough to keep the keyboard and mouse side by side. With some adjustment, I was able to fit XPG Battleground XL Prime with my build. Due to its large size keyboard and mouse both sit well on it. And if your desk space is low, it will hang on the edges.
