I've been using mice like the below for a while, and am looking to upgrade to something with a higher build quality.
I really like the feel and the button layout, but within a year or two the wheel and the thumb buttons starts getting very dodgy. The thumbs frequently register both buttons when you only click one, the wheel scroll is 50/50 whether it will register in the direction you want, it gets harder to do a wheel click without also registering a scroll, and the latest one has left-right wheel controls that are now permanently stuck on.
While I could continue to work around issues in software and buying new copies of the same cheap mouse, I'd rather pay more for something that lasts longer.
However, it's hard to find something that doesn't immediately jump to way more complex and expensive than I need like the Logitech MX Master. Is there something available in between?
- Full-size ergonomic (~3 inch wide)
- No need for mat
- Lasts more then two years
Nice to have:
- Adjustable DPI
- 6-button (two thumb buttons)
- Clicking rather than smooth wheel scroll
