Windows 7: Mouse Suggestions?

Mouse Suggestions?

I recently installed an SSD and have everything working great.

My only area to improve is the mouse.

I purchased 2 Microsoft Wireless Mobile 4000s and they both have lost the middle click ability to use Universal Scroll (Both less than 2 mos. old)

Microsoft, in their infinite wisdom, wants me to pay to send it to them (unlike most cos. that provide a shipping label) and it is not worth the trouble.

I also have a Maxell Amazon.com: Customer Reviews: Maxell 191051 Ergomotion Optical Mouse.

This works, but is uncomfortable.

I'm not a gamer, so all I'm really interested in is smooth operation and reliability.

Like to spend in the $50 range.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Paul

I've never had good luck before with Logitech, but I'll check out their new ones.

If the mouse worked before you installed your SSD it's not the mouse. It's probably the mouse program. Make sure you have all the Windows Up Dates. Microsoft will give you the option to update the mouse driver on their own mouse and keyboard if their is one. Go to your mouse program and set it to default. Now if you have a program like for gaming that changes the default setting you will have to go through that program and check the settings.

Microsoft did a remote on my computer and told me the middle click had failed.

Sorry, after the recent experience with Microsoft, I won't buy another one of their mice.

Thanks for reply.

Don't know why you would spend $50 for a mouse.
I've found these indestructable.
Logitech Cordless Desktop Keyboard and Mouse - Walmart.com

You can throw away the keyboard, but I use that too.
And I game with them too.
In the end, hand comfort - "feel" - rules, so you might not like it.
I've always had good luck with Logitech.

I have used Logitech mice exclusively and never had the first problem with them. Wore out the left click and bottom pads on one once though....but was good until the end! I got a Logitech M500 a few years ago and it has just enough buttons on it for me, and is very comfortable. On the left curved side, it has 2 buttons(back/forward), clickable middle wheel that also tilts if you want it to, and a button that "unlocks" the scroll wheel for extreme scrolling. I didn't think I would ever use that feature, but when going through documents with quite a few pages, it is a fantastic. Good software as well.......can reprogram all of the buttons, and customize it quite a bit. All that said, it doesn't have too much stuff on it, you can game with it, but it's not a gaming mouse in my opinion. I think they run about $30-40 now.......I think it was about $60 when I got mine.
