An ambidextrous mouse with good software will let you set a left- and right- handed profile and swap between them with a button press (like changing DPI).

So my corded deathadder elite that I've had for a few years' wheel is getting squeaky and bounces around rather than scrolling smoothly now (wheel itself moves smoothly, it's in the sensor response). A little light research says I need to pry it apart and clean out the wheel assembly but I'm kind of unsatisfied with the mouse to begin with so I'm thinking it's time to replace. I'm looking for suggestions for a corded gaming / general use mouse in the realm of 60-70 bucks max.

On the deathadder, I like that it has a couple thumb buttons on the side and sensitivity adjustment buttons but I find that the left and right click trigger a little too easy. It's been a few years since I changed my mouse and I still feel like I accidentally right click WAY too often. The weight and size is about right, but the light click threshold drives me crazy and I'd like something with a heavier or maybe adjustable (is that a thing?) click threshold. Also not a huge fan of the woven cord since it drags on the edge of my computer desk more than a normal cable ever did. Any recommendations?

All I'm saying is that should be enough to arouse some suspicion is all.


Iím a big fan of my Logitech G502 mouse and I like to use a mouse bungee for my cord.

Well the thing is Iím right handed but Iíve learned to be ambimousetrous to give my right shoulder a break. Using a ambidextrous mouse means the buttons are wrong in my left hand for left and right click and Iím swapping between mice on the fly. Having a dedicated left handed mouse lets the buttons be correct on both mice. Itís just this vertical mouse I got for left handing mousing is not great.

The easy solution is to use at least one mouse that comes with its own management software. I use two Logitechs and I've swapped the buttons on the left mouse in SetPoint. The same works with a Lenove Legion mouse.

I have a logitech G502 as my main mouse with the control software. Would I have to open up the software each time I wanted to swap button assignments?

You could bind one of the keys to "switch profile" to cycle between the 2.

Simply buy a ambidextrous Logitech you like and configure it left-handed. That's what I did.

Go back and read. I came in asking for a left handed non ergo mouse, it was others who suggested ambidextrous mice. I figured I should have avoided the questions of why I wanted it for the goon (you) who would get upset when I didn't do things their way. Take a chill pill.

Unless mouse software has gotten smarter back when I was first doing this switching the buttons on one mouse affected the other mouse. Although that was through windows control panel and not the mouse's software. I'll look into it and see cuz I don't think that left handed mouse is gonna show.

What's the goon word on vertical ergonomic Bluetooth mice, preferably with rechargable batteries? I'm talking VERTICAL vertical, handshake grip. Seems like it's Evoluent or nothin'.

I've got nothing for "vertical vertical", but if you find anything in the process that doesn't compress the outside of your hand/wrist, let us know. A step up currently but by God not a big one.

Works fine with SetPoint. I have old MX620 as my right mouse and M560 as the left mouse with swapped buttons. I use the old SetPoint software because I don't think the newer Unifying support the MX620.

Thanks for this. Iíll check this out then. If I end up with an ambidextrous mouse Iíll let everyone know so you all can get a satisfactory ďtold you soĒ.

stop with the small talk




What's the goon consensus on best mouse for large hands with a decent amount of buttons? I do some gaming (most strenuous game these days is Deep Rock Galactic) and a decent bit of audio and video editing. I currently have a hand-me-down g502 from my partner and I've been finding that I subconsciously squeeze the mouse with my pinky to get a decent grip on it, giving me hand pain after a little while. Looking for something on the larger side that I can get a good palm grip on. Wired preferred as I have plenty of desk space to route the cable without it getting in the way.

Simple google search is making me lean toward the Corsair m65 ELITE, but the first few pages of the search are all garbage clickbait sites.

e: I guess what I'm looking for is a wider mouse? something the majority of my hand meat can rest on? The mouse nerds in this thread probably know what I need more than I do.

I use a g,602 for work and find it comfortably sized, though maybe bit heavy for Serious Gaming. The breadth of my mouse experience is pretty limited though.
