Lefties looking for the perfect PC partner: you've come to the right place. Welcome to our guide to the best mouse for left-handers in 2019. There's one major draw for PC users that has remained with computers since it first appeared and is still well used today – the mouse.
This humble omnidirectional controller is perfect for navigating the virtual world, but can often be specialised for right hand users only. That's why it's important to know there are plenty of great mouses for left-handed people too.
Left-handed mice are available from lots of big-name manufacturers, from Logitech to Razer, and they've got plenty of special features between them – you just need to decide what it is you're looking for. From the number of buttons to the DPI, wireless capabilities to ergonomics, there's a lot to consider. We've done the work for you and narrowed down some of the best into groups so you can find the best left handed mouse for you.

The Logitech G903 is a wireless gaming mouse that does it all. Thanks to 11 programmable buttons and up to 12,000 DPI of accuracy, this left-handed mouse offers more than most could even use. The mechanical button tensioning lets you personalise it exactly, while the five profiles enable you switch between uses easily. Wireless charging using the PowerPlay mat is another great feature that makes that 32-hour battery life even less of a worry. You can leave the lighting on, lowering battery to 24-hours of use, without worry.
The Razer DeathAdder is the affordable part of this gaming mouse family. Years of experience (dating from the line's launch in 2006) have all filtered down into an great left handed mouse for a great price. You get an ergonomic grip, buttons with perfectly balanced bounceback and a gaming-grade tactile scroll wheel, all of which is said to last 10 million clicks. Plus, the five buttons are programmable.
The SteelSeries Sensei 310 is what the company claims is the world's first to have a true esports sensor. That and the ergonomic ambidextrous design combine with eight programmable buttons with 50 million-click-capable split-trigger buttons. Thanks to an ARM 32-bit processor onboard, low-latency performance guaranteed for that 12,000 DPI and 50G of acceleration. The dual RGB lighting feature is just a bonus.
The Mad Catz Rat 1 is a wired mouse that's impressive to look at but somehow remains low in price. The quirky aesthetic is functional too, as the design means the mouse can be adjusted to fit any hand for perfect ergonomic comfort. There are only three buttons but that keeps this light for travel (it can even be split to make it more compact). With multiple colour options and a very low price, this is a tough mouse to beat.
The Evoluent VerticalMouse 4 has gone through many generations since it first appeared in 2002, and it's still going strong. The ergonomic design keeps your wrist from twisting thereby creating maximum comfort and promising long-term wrist health. The optical sensor and pointer are adjustable and buttons are available for fingers and thumbs (there are six in total). This isn't cheap but as a designer it's worth shelling out a bit more if it means keeping your wrist and hands happy.
