  1. Hey there!!

    I need some advice in buying a Gaming mouse... I am a LEFT HANDED USER and i was wondering which mouse will be suitable for me..

    I need a mouse in the range of 1000-2000 dpi..

    I was thinking of a Death Adder BUT its design is such that it is suitable to only Right Handed users.. Unless a Left Handed Death Adder is available its a different issue.. Oh and yeah, please let me know if special Left Handed user mice are available also...

    I guess the Copperhead, Diamondback, Death Adder, Logitech MX518 and the G5 are the best but i wanna know which one will be best for MY NEEDS...

    Thanks!

    P.S. You can suggest other mice also.. Like any Microsoft mice or w/e...

    P.P.S I am a LEFT HANDED USER.

    Have you considered Razr's Lachesis?

    I haven't used it personally, but the design is indifferent to handedness. Apparently some find it comfortable while others do not though, so given the cost ($70 or so), you might want to put your hands on it first and see if it works for you.

    Sadly (and shockingly), it seems like virtually all gaming mice are RH only. I'm sure there are some good non-gaming mice though that are just as suitable for people who are but the hardest of hard core gamers. I just don't have much in the way of suggestions.

    Well the Lachesis is like 4000dpi, and thats way to sensitive for me... I have considered it but i figured it isn't the right one for me...

    Are there any good Microsoft mice also? I've seen the Habu, but then again, its more right-hand oriented :(

    I'm a lefty. Logitech seem to do the best mice around, but they do bugger all for lefties (tunnel-visioned eejits).
    I have the Trust 'Predator' http://www.pcrus.co.uk/acatalog/info_4676.html

    It operates at 800/1600dpi, but i've used it for 2 years now with all the latest fps games and think its great.
    Dirt cheap as well. :)

    Hope it helps.

    Unless I'm mistaken, dpi affects accuracy/responsiveness not sensitivity.
