How to choose a gaming mouse for left-handed gamers

The gaming mouse is one of the most important peripherals for gaming and left-handed gamers have ergonomic and comfortable models to choose from.

The choice of a gaming mouse specifically for left-handed gamers can be quite complicated, especially because perfectly symmetrical mice are hard to find. One of the main characteristics of left-handed mice is, in fact, on the hardware side, the absolute symmetry between the right and the left side. In addition, on the software side, it is necessary that the device is programmed to do so.

In this article we wanted to dedicate ourselves to left-handed gamers by selecting the best gaming mice currently on the market. These are basically ambidextrous solutions, as the models purely dedicated to left-handed people are not of great quality. Let's start, however, from some general considerations.

Left-handed gaming mouse: what to evaluate before buying

Before choosing a peripheral of this type, it is necessary to evaluate some aspects of particular importance. Usually, a mouse can be composed of an optical sensor or a laser sensor. Although these categories have different advantages and are appreciated by many people, one wins over the other when it comes to online gaming. We are talking about the optical mouse, which is ideal for more opaque surfaces and is the one that is used by most gamers. On the other hand, the laser mouse, which is suitable for shinier surfaces and features a higher Dpi number, is the least recommended for those who want to play computer games.

You're unlikely to need a high Dpi number (high sensitivity) when playing online games. However, ambidextrous gaming mice allow you to change the Dpi number to suit your needs. An ambidextrous gaming mouse should also have good ergonomics so that your hand doesn't get tired after hours of gaming. Finally, among the additional features of a mouse for left-handed gamers, there must be the ability to program the buttons to your liking, there must be the inclusion of an internal memory to save profiles and, perhaps, an RGB backlight. Having reached this point, it's time to find out which are the 5 most popular left-handed gaming mice of the moment.
