Good day.

I've been using the Logitech MX310 Optical Mouse for a number of years now. I liked the product so much that I purchased several to keep around in case they break.

Regrettably, I am fresh out copies, as my last one is having issues registering clicks or holding a click. I am having difficultly locating a vendor who still sells them though. Because of this, I need to locate a suitable replacement.

I am on the hunt for a simple, elegant, yet sturdy wired mouse. It doesn't need a bazillion buttons on it, as four has suited me just fine for a number of years, so if I can find one similar that would be swell. Somewhere in the price range of $20-40 would be preferable.

Any and all recommendations would be most helpful.

Thank you for your time.

This one looks similar to your MX310, the buttons are in more or less the same place. It's also only 25$ CAD (will be about the same US).

This, unless your hands tend to sweat.

The plastic they used to create this mouse is, forgive me, ****. If your hands sweat, more or less, the surface of the mouse will become really uncomfortable and will need a wipe every now and then.

I have used my MX500 for almost 9 years now, its pretty decent. Mine eve has a visible red laser under it.

But I got a new G500 or something for my second laptop. It is also good.

If you decided to splash out... try the Logitech G9 - best mouse I've ever owned.

Happy user of the Razer Deathadder, good comfort and good price point tooSmile

I'm still running on my Logitech M-UV98 ... well after it had some corrective surgery after it got sick Laughing
Personally, for an el cheapo, simple no fuss mouse, I'd recommend sticking to Logitechs.

The Logitech internals & mechanical functions are generally a lot more solid and better designed than the avg.
I've opened several mices over the years, and Logitechs are still my favourite.

Using a Logitech g500 here, absolutely no complaints. Tried the g9 for a short time but i couldn't really handle the slightly different shape... Guess i just got too used to the mx500 i had before the g500.

I've used for years. It refuses to show any wear at all, it's magnificent. This mouse has CCP Soundwaves stamp of approval. If I could marry a mouse, this would be it.

Yeah I too once got it in to my head that paying $50 for a farking mouse was somehow a good idea.

It was iirc a Microsoft Habu.

It was shyte.

I now use whatever I get free from the medical rep. They generally (suprisingly) make the pointer move around the screen and ****z.

Joining the "MX5xx is the best mouse ever, it just works, never dies, fits very well in my hand and who needs new gimmicks anyway" crew. Had MX500, replaced with MX518 (500 wasn't dead yet nor needed replacing, I was just worried I'd never be able to find a new one later on).

Would recommend the Logitech MX Performance.

Also the guarantees on Logitech products is great. Recently had the MX Revolution for around 2years (used daily), one of the buttons on the left started to stop working now and then, told them and theyre now sending me the MX Performance mouse as a free replacement. And still keeping the original one.

So yeah, even if you dont get one of the ones above, would still strongly suggest Logitech from my experience.

LOVE my Logitech G500, and the G5 I had before that. Have thought about the G9, but decided not to risk it.
