Mouse w/ thumb scroll

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm searching for a mouse that has a thumb scroll. It's not for gaming, but for work stuff like spreadsheet and engineering program. I want easier access for horizontal scrolling.

Something like this:

http://www.logitech.com/en-us/keyboards/keyboard-mice-combos/devices/3481

Sadly, It's keyboard + mouse bundle, I just want the mouse. And the keyboard is wireless, I'm afraid of its responsiveness and battery life.

Could you please recommend me a mouse like this? I preferred wired, but wireless is ok if it needs to.

EDIT: No R.A.T series please...

You're looking at the MX revolution:

It was discounted back in 2009, but if you hit up places like ebay, you can find one as low as $35.

Thx you two.. But I think I should go with the bundle and selling my lycosa instead, as I don't do games often now.
The mice is discontinued and I don't like buying a used product..

It's sad though that logitech decided to sell this mouse in keyboard+mouse bundle only.. The mouse is really great for working (at least in my job). I feel that I really need that ergonomic and thumb scroll of this mouse.

That is unique looking mouse.. But 110$ eek.gif for a mouse that is not a gaming mouse is just too much..

I've got an MX Revolution if you wanna trade.
It's yours if you get me a used Naos 3200. thumb.gif


Edit: I want to mention though. The thumb wheel is a "Slide" wheel that returns to it's original position. It's not a literal scroll "Wheel"

Though it does feel quite nice. And this is one darn rugged mouse as well. Mines going on 3 years without even a scratch. Just a tiny bit of unnoticeable wear on the thumbrest.
