Best ambidextrous/left-handed mouse I've ever used, and I've gone through many brands of gaming mice.

Honestly, so far, the best ambidextrous/left-handed mouse I've used in years.
I've gone through Razer mice, and found both that the thumb buttons weren't quite in the right place for me, making them difficult to actually use in game, and lately, I have to say their quality/durability has fallen off. First Razer mouse I used, an original copperhead, is actually still functional but very worn and looks it. Last Razer mouse, Orochi, lasted less than 2 months before a main button stopped working.
After that, tried EVGA, just because the price was amazing. I got 2 Torx 3X Laser mice. Same problem with thumb button, needed to somewhat turn mouse to use thumb buttons, making them less than convenient and undependable in game. Also, very quickly, inside of 2 months, the rubber on the mouse wheel loosened, making the wheel close to completely non-functional. Also, for my hand, somewhat small, the whole mouse seemed somewhat long and flat.
I then tried the logitech G300 mouse, but found the mouse a strange shape, very high, with the left and right buttons 'grooved' so low it was impossible to hit those buttons and the middle mouse button/wheel at the same time, which I do for some games. I also could not use the 'thumb' buttons and right mouse button at the same time, as the 'thumb' buttons faced straight up and were designed to be pressed by the same finger that pressed the right mouse button - index finger in my case as I'm left-handed. Again, I use that combination of thumb and right mouse button in some games, so the Logitech mouse was a no-go for games.
Finally I tried this mouse, the SteelSeries Sensei 310 Gaming Mouse. It feels so good, just perfect in my hand. the thumb buttons are in the right place to use w/o twisting the mouse, and I may even be able to use the 2 buttons on the other side. As I am not pressing them accidently, I think I can leave them active and use them, a first for an ambidextrous mouse in my experience. The materials feel good, the switches seem solid so far, and the software is great once you get used to it. It even has a cloud feature, so I can keep the settings the same for the mouse I use /w my laptop, and the one I use /w my desktop.
The only other mouse I'd consider is the second newest Logitech wired/wireless one, G900, (I don't need Lightspeed charging of G903), but the G900 Still costs over $100, more than 2x the cost of the Sensei 310.
Again, for me, so far, 2 months in, this is best ambidextrous/left-handed mouse I've ever used - just great design overall.
