    Mouse recommendation

    i have been using a gm-m6800 mouse for a 2.5 years now and the left click button has suffered a mechanical failure (only mouse i ever used to fail)
    now i am using your old basic dell mouse as a backup
    does anyone use a similar mouse
    * i want a forward/back button on the side
    * i don't want that sill high speed scroll wheel
    * i don't want crazy bright ascetic leds (unless i can open the mouse and change the resistor, see next point)
    * id like to have one that i can open to clean when it gets full of cat hair without removing glued on pads
    * I like wired mouses cause i don't like batteries
    * must have a 800dpi setting
    i mainly use 800dpi, i actually altered my mouse settings to 1/2 my speed so i could use 1600dpi, but i rarely changed it
    i don't want to spend over $10 USD on it, i have been waiting on my old mouse to go on sale, but maybe i can find one i like more

    I doubt this will work for you but I've been using a Logitech M705 wireless mouse for a while now and it seems perfectly functional for me.

    The mouse you mention looks to be a gaming mouse and I saw it priced at around 95 dollars. The mouse I use retails at around 50 bucks.

    I don't think you could get a wireless or wired mount with those specs for 10 bucks unless you get one used.

    Ah ok. I'd get that one tbh, especially at that price.

    I am using an HP 5 Button Optical Comfort Mouse which in this case is USB attached but also comes as wireless if you want, I believe.
    The extra buttons are set one on each side of the mouse and they worked as back/forward in browser and file manager with no configuration on my part. It is very accurate and smooth and I think it is absolutely worth the price I paid, which I believe was about £10 (British pounds).
