Title: Left-handed or ambidextrous wireless mouse?
Post by: iri on Sat, 30 January 2021, 06:41:36
Hello everyone,

I'm looking for a good wireless mouse to use with my left hand. I don't need more than two buttons and the scrolling wheel. I think it'd be best if the buttons and the wheel are quiet and lightweight. (EDIT: the mouse is not for gaming).

Searching GH, it seems like the natural choice for a mouse like this (that is currently available) is Logitech G900/G903. But those seem a bit overkill since I don't need all the extra buttons. Any other mice I might look at?


Thanks

The 900/903 has block offs to remove side buttons you don't need. As for the rest, the big middle  nub is actually scroll release, not a button for function, the two below are the only other extras. Compared to many mice (I had a G700 prior), it's rather minimalistic. I call it the most boring expensive mouse you can buy, but I do agree it's overkill for "just a mouse".

On the other hand you can find 900's new in box for about the price or a refurbished 903 (under $90) and it is a great mouse with relatively easy Omron switch replacement (unlike many other Logitech) so it may still be your best bet in the long run if you burn through switches like I do.

Unfortunately, I can't find a new G900 here in the UK for less than 99 :(

If it's not for gaming and you can live with tacticle switches then the Logitech M350 Pebble would do just fine.

Thanks TalkingTree. Yeah, the mouse is not for gaming.
