Looking for a wireless mouse with centered sensor

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I'm looking for a decent wireless mouse to take around with my laptop. Unfortunately, most mice that meet the criteria I like to have for my mouse often seem to have off centered sensors, and given the strange way I tend move my mouse (I think almost entirely with my wrist) it's been incredibly aggravating for me to use an off centered mouse. I'm currently using Anywhere Mouse MX, which satisfies most of requirements but has a Darkfield sensor, which I don't need any of the extra features but is a major battery hog. It does NOT need to be great gaming mouse. I may occasionally do some casual gaming on it but that will not be it's main purpose.

A couple of the things I'm looking for are:
  • Centered sensor
  • (Wireless)
  • Front and back thumb buttons
  • Notched scroll wheel
  • Preferably, but not required, one of those small or "nano" receivers that I can keep in my laptop
  • No extra gaming features or sensors that will affect battery life
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks a lot!

Sorry! I think I posted this in the wrong section by accident. Could a mod move the thread?

The Performance Mouse MX is a great mouse, but it has an off centered sensor as well =/ (in addition to DF, which does eat through the battery).

I've tried the G700 as well, and all the extra gaming features take a toll on the battery life even more quickly than DF.

Are there any other options I'm not aware of that fit my criteria? Otherwise I guess I'm sticking with Anywhere mouse MX...

Thanks for the help though.

Where is the micro-switch for the clicker located on the G700, is it around the center of the clicking are or like Razer's style which is located closer to the main body of the mouse?
