You may have come across many problems while using a mouse if you are a born left-hander. Some people get used to it, but with a relatively slower workflow. But when it comes to scenarios where quick actions are required by your hands, like Gaming, you definitely need a better option than to rely on your luck. Ambidextrous mice are not a dream anymore and many of the big names have released their versions of gaming mice with equal controls provided to the left-handers.
Although ASUS is already into the business of making ambidextrous mice but the latest offering of the company, the ‘Pugio’ is something worth having a try. It’s not only for the left-handers but also the right-handers can do equally well by using it. Pugio is not a regular mouse built for left-handers, rather it aims at providing a high-quality gaming experience to the game freaks at least as far as their mouse is concerned.
The Changes Made
What makes Pugio stand out in the race of left-handed mice are the highly customizable side buttons which can be attached magnetically. If you fear accidentally clicking them in situations where you definitely don’t want to hit them, simply remove them! If they stop working, you can get a new pair of buttons instead of replacing the whole mouse. If you have the knowledge of currently available mice that can be counted as the rival of Pugio, your mind might come across the Logitech G900 which is available for a retail price of £119.99. Pugio is a much better option with a price tag as minimal as you would want, £70.
Following are the detailed specifications of Pugio:
- A 7,200 DPI optical sensor
- Chinese Omron D2FC-F-K switches to bear up to 50 million clicks
- Japanese Omron D2F-01F switches as spares
If you are still not satisfied by the spare switches (Packed inside the mouse which you can get by unscrewing the back of the mouse), you have the option of looking into other options available in the market.
Although there is a downside to it too as it still retains just two preset sensitivity levels, it boasts a separate button to lower the actuation force and travel distance of each click.
