I tried removing four links, and adjusting the clasp, but it was too tight. I ended up removing three links, and adjusting the clasp all the way in to make it comfortable. Is having the band offset and longer on one side a big deal to anyone here?

Sometimes you've just got to do it, as you've found out :) has never bothered me tbh, though a difference of more than one on each side would probably be bothersome.

It wouldn't bother me as long as it looks alright, and it's definitely preferable to having it too tight. I've always managed to juggle between the clasp and links to keep them even, but if only removing 2 links and fully adjusting the clasp leaves it too loose, it was your only option.

On my MTG910 I've got 4 links on one side and 5 links on the other side. I go for good balance and comfortable feel, and it works for me on this watch.

I know there is a 'right' way to have unequal lengths, so that the watch sits well on the wrist - but I can't remember what it is. :-(

Mine sits comfortably, and the clasp is slightly offset on the inside of my wrist. One side has 3 full links and one 2/3 link while the other side has 5 whole links and the one small plain non-decorative link that sits under the clasp when it is latched. I'd rather it be this way than too tight. With the four links orignally taken out I couldn't fully bend my wrist.

I always take off the odd link on the 6 o'clock side. Seems to ride best there and looks decent.

I agree with JCRaw. I think it is best to make the bottom (6 o'clock) half of the strap significantly shorter, sometimes by more than one link. This brings the watch further down on your wrist and stops it hanging off the back of your wrist when you lift your wrist up.
