I am left handed. But when it comes to computers, like most other left-handed people I know, I use a right-hand mouse. It's just … how I was taught. So I've never seen the need for a mouse that tries to accommodate both normal humans and sinister mutants.
I mean, let's look at the situation here. This is a rating for a gaming mouse. Not a $ 10 Logitech mouse for your father's computer. A real, serious gaming mouse. That is, you are in the market for something of a certain quality, a certain comfort. How a mouse feels in your hand is of paramount importance.
That's why the best mice – I'm talking about things like the Razer DeathAdder and Naos 8200 – take ergonomics so seriously. How could a mouse that is halfway between the hands possibly offer the same level of comfort? And why bother when mice like the DeathAdder ship with special left-handed variants?
No idea. But hey, this category of market exists because people (internet cafe owners? Almost identical twins sharing a PC?) Still want that flexibility. So if you really need to sit on the fence, the Avior 8200 is a great way to do it.
Made by Mionix – they are famous for the Naos 8200, my favorite gaming mouse of all – it obviously lacks the bulk or custom ergonomics that a right-handed mouse offers.
Everything else I like about the Naos 8200 is here. It's just a little bit smaller.

The build quality is excellent, every button gives a strong, reassuring click. As with other Mionix mice, the soft, matte finish is extremely pleasant on the outside. It was fast, accurate and not once in my tests (Mirror & # 39; s Edge, Rome II, EUIV) has it stalled, slowed down, or failed.
In fact, it's good weight, surprisingly for a mouse that's on the small side.
READ: The full list of specifications can be found here. The basics are: 9 buttons, fully programmable 8200DPI, 72 MHz 32-bit processor, 3-level DPI adjustment in the game.
Perhaps the best part is that, like its bigger brother, the Naos, the Avior is the rarest animal, a fantastic gaming mouse that has a subtle design too. There are no giant logos, no flashy color schemes, no ridiculous angles, it's just a soft rubber mouse with a simple LED in the steering wheel and another in the Mionix logo on the palm (which isn't even visible while using it). However, it's not boring. The matte finish and the clean lines make this mouse a very attractive mouse.
Disadvantage? They are all associated with the ambidextrous design. There are buttons on both sides of the mouse (the Avior supports 5 profiles). Depending on which hand you use with any of these sets, it will be difficult to get to you. Ask them to either remove your ring finger from the top / wheel and slide it down, or to pull your pinky finger back from its resting place. It's a bit small too; I don't have a big hand, but while Mionix says the mouse can be used with either a claw or a palm grip, a lot of people will struggle to get a good buy with their palms.
So mostly problems with the concept, not exactly this mouse. That said, if you really need an ambidextrous mouse, this is awesome. Just don't expect the same level of convenience or ease of use as a dedicated right- (or left-handed!) Mouse.
The Avior 8200 is available now and costs around $ 90.
