I’m pretty selective about the stuff I use. For mice I prefer:
- Wired, not wireless. I don’t like the extra weight/inertia of batteries. I don’t really see a benefit for my usage, and it seems like a hassle to have to charge or replace batteries.
- Optical. Cleaning gunk out of a mouse wheel is tiring. Do they even make mice with balls anymore? I guess probably the males.
- Reasonably high refresh rate.
- I’ve never gotten into the habit of side/thumb buttons, and I tend to click them on accident more than on purpose.
I’ve been using a Razer Salmosa for the past few weeks and I’m happy with it. For some reason the Razer company makes some really expensive mice. I don’t know what would justify a $129 mouse. Maybe it solves world hunger one click at a time.
