Replacing my WR512
I bought this WR422LE as a replacement for my WR512 that I have used for years. The 512 was perfect for my needs except that the fabric and gel were vulnerable to stains and "dents". I was always careful NOT to traumatize the support pad, but my family members were not. I had to replace the pad once before. When I tried to replace it again, it was unavailable and the WR422LE was apparently a replacement product. The WR422LE is acceptable but not ideal: PROS: Durable leatherette cover over the gel. Not as soft or cool, but definitely an improvement. Good mousing surface. CONS: The old WR512 was wider and perfectly rectangular. It fit my computer desk better. I decided to retire my old reliable extra wide Northgate keyboard in favor of a slightly less old Focus 2001 since it fit the 422 better. The 422LE has a curved front and is not height adjustable like the 512. A non slip surface for the keyboard would be a nice extra.
