    How is it ambidextrous if the buttons are only on one side?
    I have an ambi Roccat Kova [+] under my hand right now and the off-side buttons intended for lefties really get in the way of a righty... and vice versa. Surely this would just hack off the lefties?

    Also, for £24 I got a lot more mouse for my money with CM's Inferno mouse...

    If it has that RGB nonsense then it's not for me!

    this mouse is not ambidextrous!!! its only for right handed people not for lefties.. its need to have the same buttons on both sides of the mouse to be ambidextrous mouse..

    Re: Cooler Master CM310 is "the gaming mouse for everyone"

    I had a microsoft mouse which was ambidextrous and had a button either side (usually mapped to back and forward on webpages). I kept that for a bit and then got a Logitech MX Revolution which cost about £70 and I still have. It's a stupendously good mouse but is definitly not for the cackhanded. I'm amazed given the high margin, lowish volume nature of a £70 mouse that they didn't make a lefty version. They could certainly reuse a lot of parts and inverting the design / CAD stuff on modern design software would surely be dead easy? Surely they just need to produce a different set of moulds for the plastic parts and the PCBs, etc could be easily cut to a different shape and so on.

    Am I just being simple?

    Thing is, if you take a product that's already low volume, then make a left-handed (not cack-handed) version, volumes for that are going to be even lower still. Left-handed versions of things will always be a niche, given that only 10% of us are left-handers.

    Happily for me, although I write left-handed, I've always used a mouse right-handed. No idea why, but I really do look cack-handed when I try and use a mouse with my left hand...

    Is it only 10%? I thought it was higher for some reason. Dunno why I had more in my head. In that case yeh, my argument is utter cack. Feel free to ridicule it.

    I've had enough RGB nonsense. It's not just the cost of the LEDs on the product but they spend money developing software so you can make it do stupid things like flash and throb. These are words I would expect in 'allo 'allo.

    I have a backlit keyboard but that's one colour, I don't care about the colour as long as I can see it. I like to work in the dark as I enjoy the occasional pint of blood and so I like a backlit keyboard.... even though I touchtype and hardly look at it. But hey. Oh and the software is so bad that, until I fixed it, I actually had to have TWO keyboards on my desk as the Razor one would occasionally decide to work and occasionally not so I needed a backup. Utterly disgraceful for over £100 of keyboard.

    Some mice are made in right and left handed versions though but, most manufacturers just don't bother. I use an Evoluent vertical mouse, already a niche product and that is available in right and left handed versions.
