Cool. Thanks mate. Looks interesting. I did actually check out the Logitech site earlier but I must have missed that one. Can't believe no-one makes left-handed mice. And alot of newer mice now have buttons on the side and all over the place, which makes it obscure for left handed ppl.

Whatever you do NO NOT get that Logitec mouse!!! It'll save you a LOT of trouble with maya..

I have the Optical Cordless Freedom from Logitech and the middle mouse button works whenever it wants to... and I'm not kidding...

I have to restart a few times so it works... I've tried everything but it's not compatible I guess...

Other than that, it's great!!

oh, i have also a logitech... i don't know the exact name (it is optical cordless and has a thumb-button)... the middle button i have on this thumb-button, but it's not sure that in maya this is the same button, sometimes the wheel-button is the middle one.

i know it sounds strange and YES it is strange! perhaps its just the wrong driver....

I have the logitech dual optical usb mouse and no problems whatsoever. The wheel works fine. I have the 4th button as Enter. Quite handy in many places. Don't know if there is a left handed version of it...
