Any decent modern mouse suggestions?
My computer mouse has begun to go to crap so I bought a new Logitech m510 today to replace it. My original mouse was a small Logitech that I loved, but this new one is horrible. The biggest issue I have with it is the location of its optic/laser on the bottom. If you're looking at the optic, it's on the left hand side of the mouse. My old one's was on the right, and I can already tell that when dragging the mouse downward it makes a huge difference in the range you'll get (although the left to right movement has remained very similar).
I'm looking for a decent modern mouse that has its optic on the right hand side if you're looking down at the optic (when the mouse is belly side up). I do game some, but I don't need anything fancy. Must be a wireless, too.

When I was a young'n, all the way back in the day.... we didn't have none of them newfangled opticy mouse whazzits... our mice either had 4 legs and scurried around, or had a rollerball on the bottom.....
j/k, in all seriousness, just get the cheapest logitech optical, with the optic in the center of the mouse (where they should be by default.... stupid designers).

Have you thought of a trackball? I have been using this one since 2004....

I have the M510, I liked it so much I bought one for work. I love the programable buttons and it fits my hand really well and the batteries last a really long time.

Just got the cheaper, slightly smaller M317. It's a million times better than its big brother! And it's optic is on the proper side, too ;)

Gave up on mice years ago. I use one of these:
Wacom Volito 2. Dirt cheap (I got mine off Ebay for about £20) &, once you have the know of it, a breeze to use for everything from Photoshop to WP/DTP. A5 working area that maps to your screen.
The larger versions (like the A4-sized Intuos) come with a mouse as well a a pen (& a heftier price tag).

The problem with the wacom tablet mice is that the buttons are extremely cheap. I've been through 2 graphire tablets in the last 6 years. Incredibly nice to have a tablet, but those mice just don't last, and cost a fortune to replace (if they still make your model of mouse by the time it dies). I'd love to stop using the wireless kb/mouse combo, but my tablet mouse died and don't feel like dropping $100+ on a wacom bamboo. Intuous is out of my price range, even off the 'bay.

Oh...you said MODERN mouse suggestions.

I use an MX 518, used a similar model before it, don't like regular mouse shapes now!
Trackball user were as well. I had a brush with carpal tunnel way back whenI was a head down coder. Used the ball ever since. It is much better for you ergonomically IF you are on the machine for long periods of time - like at work...
I have the Expert from Kensington and Marble from Logitech at work (3 workstaions at work). I use the Marble mouse in my studio rig. If it ever dies I'll go with the Expert as I like the extra resolution and larger ball.
