Left-Handed? Good news, this is for you! Help spread the word.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP
Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan opened a Facebook group to get another Left-Handed Edition of the Razer Naga going.
 
Quote

All,

After extensive discussions internally, we've decided to pool together some additional funds to make an updated LH Naga for the community - For Gamers. By Gamers.

This is something we will immediately be starting work on, and we will update this group in terms of the progress.

However, every LH Naga we make - we lose money. Essentially, this is a loss-making endeavor and the reason why we're the ONLY company in the world to make LH gaming mice is because we want to do right by you guys. And the videos, posts (not the ones hating on me) that you guys made really were critical in making us arrive at this final decision.

However, to avoid the situation where this happens again, we need you guys to give us ideas how we can get more sales for the LH Naga, ideas on getting the word out, ideas on how we can get the LH Naga as a sustainable product and not something we need to revisit every year. Otherwise, this will be the last LH Naga we will ever make.

I'm not going to be CEO forever at Razer (I hope I will be but who knows) and the community team may change and the management will have different ideas. And the only way to continue sustaining LH Nagas is to make sure we at least break even and not lose crazy amounts of money.

Again, please keep this confidential for now - but I would love to hear your ideas on how we can really get the word out and get more attention for the LH Naga when we launch so it won't be the last one that we make.

For Gamers. By Gamers.

Min - CEO Razer

 

Razer also made a video about it: Official Razer Left-Handed Naga YouTube Video

PC Gamer covered this story as well: PC Gamer

Are you in need of a left-handed mouse, for gaming or any sort of productivity? Razer will have you covered, a 12 side button mouse made for us left-handed people.
Sadly this will be the last attempt for Razer to deliver on a left-handed mouse, unless the demand gets way up. So please join the Left Handed Naga Group and declare your interest. Also tell your friends, or anyone really, the word needs to get around.
There are 800 million left-handed people on this planet, more then enough to turn a profit, a lot of profit, but most left-handed people don't know that this product exists, so please help us spread the word.

I'm left-handed but not for mouses. Still a good thing for everyone to have. It likely won't sell much, but at least they chose a popular mouse to start with.

Good day ;) You've now met the first person who does indeed use a mouse with their left hand. Yes, it can be a pain sometimes, especially for games that don't let me remap my keys to the numpad.

I use the mouse in my left hand, I also know some other left-handed people who use the mouse in their left hand. Apart from "normal" left handed folks, there are also people who have no motor controls in their right hand, an under developed right hand or don't have a right hand to begin with, so this is also good for accessibility reasons, not only for the "normal" left-handed person.

 

Also in some situations I find being left-handed actually better, playing with the right hand on the numpad for gaming, resting the right hand near the enter and delete button for work, binding copy/past via macros to the mouse side buttons. The keyboard is right in the middle instead of offset to the left. It has pros and cons, the biggest con is the lack of available hardware.

How about appreciating a company doing something good instead of bashing it right away? You might not like 12 side buttons or the brand, but the actual thing they do is good and should be appreciated regardless of brand association. Frankly I would love to see other brands doing this as well, Logitech, Corsair you name it, but for now there is only one.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

This wouldn't be a problem with the Logitech g903 since you can just move the buttons on the left to the right ?

Heck you can even have buttons at both sides, maybe Razer should just copy Logitech, nvm just Logitech think even Corsair has interchangeable buttons that can be moved from right to left etc via magnets.

It's for MMO or shooters with plenty of mapping. It's even good for those that do CAD work thanks to the infinite number of tools to use.

I don't owe Razer anything, I'm under no sort of obligation to grovel at their feet. Besides, I was commenting on the mouse, not the fact that they're offering a southpawed mouse -- that mouse is HIDEOUS left-handed AND right-handed!

At work, there is occasional need for me to switch hands depending on what I'm doing and what else happens to be on the table. Often, it's easier and less time consuming to just use my left than to rearrange things to accommodate, and I still run the maximum sensitivity settings just fine. Typical office mice tend to be better suited for ambidextrous use than shaped gaming mice.

 

One of the computers here used for product testing has all the peripherals be left side, so I go leftie exclusively when using that PC.

A seperate nums pad on the left with a small keyboard and mouse on the right would probably prove sufficient, albeit, expensive for righties. I wonder if a full-size keyboard would better serve ergonomics by moving the nums pad to the left?

Same.

 

Its just too far gone for me at this point. But I do use Nagas for at home and work. They are absolutely fantastic productivity mice.

I am in a similar boat to others here, I write left handed but have always used a mouse with my right hand to the point where I don’t know if I could ever switch back.

I'm left-handed and wouldn't mind a left-handed mouse to complement my right-handed one. 

However I do have standards with regards to quality, so I will never buy a Razer product again.

Thought them having things that break easily was only something they did years ago. Haven't heard anything about it lately.
