  1. Razer has announced the arrival of its first gaming mouse designed specifically for left-handed users, the Razer DeathAdder Left Hand Edition. Crafted with professional left-handed gamers in mind, the new mouse combines an ergonomic form factor with a 3.5G infrared sensor, offering lefties a competitive edge compared to existing ambidextrous or right-handed mice.

    I'm lefty and I'm glad that such a good gaming mouse like Razer is made for lefty. I will buy it for sure and test it.

    Do the lasers/sensors in these high-end mice last any longer than your typical $35.00 Microsoft or Logitech mouse? Or are you just paying for DPI, looks, and more buttons?

    I'm a leftie and play TF2 all the time! Finally can press more buttons on the mouse! Ordering one of these on friday!

    And you pay for slightly quicker responses and they last just as long if not longer than your standard due to being well made. Although a portion of the money does go to looks and brand name.

    I still have a fully working MX500, which has taken so much abuse.....The mice feet have worn down pretty bad, so I replaced it with a G5, and the MX500 is now on another comp.

    However, I did have an optical Logitech mouse bought around the time they first released optical mice which just died last year. For sentimental reasons I then tried to fix it, and it seems to be a cable problem: apparently over the years I managed to twist the cable so bad that it disconnected from within the mouse....

    Pretty nice for a left hander, although my G5 right hander is holding up nicely.

    I have a razor mamba wireless. I have been extremely happy with its performance although you pay more for a razer mouse the performance is great and sometimes its just good to have something that looks kick ***.

    I'm not much of an enthusiast mouse person. I've used razer mouses and G5's and wahtnot, but a relatively standard $25 Logitech mouse will perform just as well with maybe a few less useless buttons.

    Great to see an enthusiast company like Razer doing something for all the lefties. Always like the look of the Deathadder, maybe I'll look at getting a Razer mouse when my Sidewinder X8 dies if MS don't release an updated model of the X8.

    I personally know 2 people that are discouraged from PC games because they can't seem to find the right mouse (left mouse?) that suites them. I'm going to have to introduce the DeathAdder to them.

    Gotta love a company that is willing to go out on a limb and bring a product to a market that nobody really cares about or even notices, go Razer!

    Looks like a nice mouse too, good luck lefties.

    Passing this on to my left-handed friends who have been howling for years about not having a gaming mouse for them.

    I think Robert Krakoff (RAZOR president) is left-handed, because he made a special mouse for left-handed gamers (taking the fact that there are not so much left-handed gamers)

    That's good for the lefties, nothing new though tech wise.
    Good idea from Razer again.

    This is a great product for a niche market sorely missing viable alternatives. Lefties have been long ignored by most mouse manufacturers for quite some time.

    I have one of the 3.5G Deathadders (for righties) and I recommend for any lefty that needs a new mouse. Haven't had any issues with it whatsoever.. although it did take some adjusting as I upgraded from a MX510. The extra ~2k DPI really helps too :)
