Oh and I'd like it to be WIRED! It's for a desktop and never leaves the mouse pad. The cord doesn't bother me and I don't like worrying about batteries.

Why not just get another Dell like the one you had? They seem to be available still.

@pitamuffin: @moondrake: I don't know. I guess I'm just looking for something with a higher quality/heavy feel. Don't know if either of you have held/used an $80 mouse before. But they have a wonderful heavy/sturdy/metal feel about them. When holding the cheap dell mouse, though comfortable shape, you know it was given away for free and costs 2 cents to make.

I like trackball mice that you navigate with your thumb and don't move around at all, so I am not conscious of my mouse's weight. My wrist does not enjoy driving a mouse around all day, but my thumb doesn't mind. I love the Logitech one I have at work, it's a perfect fit to my hand and when I am doing mouse work it's a very comfortable and ergonomic rest. What I use at home is a tiny Logitech remote mouse which operates the computer hooked to my TV across the room, and the built in mouse panels on my laptops.

@moondrake: Ahhh. I was never able to get use to the trackball. But those who have always rave about them.

@firebirdude: Sounds as if you need to hit some B&M stores and actually field test as many mice as you can find.

I dearly love my Logitech Performance MX, which fits my hand perfectly, but evidently neither it nor any of the other dozen or mice we have around here would suit you.

@firebirdude: I actually use that Naga Epic Gaming mouse to work in Microstation, and yes I use 11 of the 15 buttons. Its comfy and its wired or wireless. It also comes with adjustable side plates to better fit your hand.

@firebirdude: I still have to recommend this one - even though it's wireless:

Logitech M310 - Refurbished

It's got the right shape. Battery lasts well over a year on normal usage, so it's worth considering.

Wow - that's a pretty good deal. I think I'll post it on the deals side.

I've worn out several Logitech MX310's. It's been long d/c'd I guess; I order them from Korea on ebay. The perfect mouse for me, if it only had a couple more buttons to program.

I like wireless mouse. But this dell is perfect.
