Need Help Finding a Wireless Mouse

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Okay this gets a bit tricky here.

The mouse I've currently been using since 2008, the Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 5000 is starting to show it's age and is needing replacing.

It's had a good run. Picked this mouse after much searching a few years ago because it fit the criteria I need in a mouse.

Now after much searching for a replacement the best I can find is the newer version of this same mouse??

What I need in a mouse:

Wireless

At least five buttons

Wheel that scrolls and tilts

Has at least 5 foot wireless range

Can be used with both hands comfortably

If the mouse can't do ALL of the above I won't buy it.

I am left handed so I game with the mouse in my left had.

However I switch hands on the mouse all the time doing just about everything else on my pc.

Depends also how I'm sitting at my desk what had I use on the mouse.

So a right handed mouse isn't out of the question, but I need to be able to use it with my left too. And vice versa.

I've been happy with this mouse in just about all ways, and it doesn't bother me to buy an updated version.

I guess I am just shocked at how now four years later here I am back searching for a mouse again with the same criteria as before and

the best I can find is the newer version of this same mouse.

Hard to believe.

I guess the only one (I can think of) that comes close to what you need is the Razer Orochi, although it has no Tilt Wheel and I don't know about it's wireless range.

Edit: Oh yeah and the Roccat Pyra
