Sadly, I don't think there is a version of the MS3.0 which has the mousewheel fixed. You'll have to mod it or live with not jumping with mousewheel. I'd avoid the glossy Chinese versions and just get regular one:

Either of those two are fine. I must note too that the side buttons are very loose.
The link to the mod is here in case your interested:

I opening the mouse is nothing to be scared of and is very easy.

To be honest, I wouldn't recommend buying the 3.0 respawn. The overall quality has gone down hill since they stopped producing the x06/x08 models back in 2006. Granted, the sensor is the same, the new model feels much much cheaper.

The 1.1 on the other hand feels like the classic.

Because I had an x08(2005) till it broke around 4 months ago. Granted, I bought both the respawn and legends editions, nothing felt as good as the original.

To rate: Any 3.0 prior to 2006 (SE/JP/CN/Normal)>Legends (2010)>Respawn (2007).

I'm currently using IMO1.1's I bought in bulk from china.

X06/x08 furthest away, Matte buttons, Respawn closest, Silver buttons.

It's not fixed yet, I can confirm this with a 2010 Legends.

Also, my older x08/2003 WMO tracked the same distance as the respawns. I don't know where the whole 450 DPI thing came from, Microsoft's spec sheet still states 400.

Glossy top, doesn't wear out as quick.

Matte rubberized side buttons feel slightly stiffer and less cheap. (They still don't compare to the original
