Scroll Wheel mouse recommendation

Can anyone recommend a two button, scroll wheel mouse that works well with MacOS Monterey?

At the back end of last year I purchased a [Logitech M220] ( wireless mouse, but it just doesn’t work. It’s fine to start with, but after a little while starts randomly jumping around the screen. Turning the mouse off and on or pulling the USB nub receiver makes it work again (for a while), so my guess is that its a software issue. As far as I know I have the latest drivers, but it’s driving me nuts.

The mouse was fairly cheap, so rather than waste more time on it I’m on the look out for a similar L/R button + scroll wheel mouse and hopped someone might have a recommendation.

By the way, I have an Apple Magic Mouse already …


I’ve been using Logitech M535’s with my MacBook Air and iPad Pro. Good basic design. (But, FWIW, I do not install any Logitech software on my Mac.) It’s a compact mouse so YMMV.

Logitech MX Master 3

I have been using this mouse for the past 2 years since having to work from home and absolutely love it. It has a regular and thumb scroll wheel, all of the buttons can be set to perform custom functions for different apps, and it is super comfy in your hand. I was starting to get carpal tunnel from using a tiny mouse, and that has resolved since switching because I can rest my entire hand on it and set it to be sensitive enough to require minimal movement. It’s pricey but IMO worth every cent. I use it every day with the MX Keys keyboard, and if I do have to go into the office, I will bring them along!


I have a Logitech MX Master 3 mouse that I use occasionally with my Mac, but mostly with my work Windows laptop. I’m quite happy with it.

I suggest not buying the ‘Mac’ version, as it tis the same as the non Mac version, but does not include the USB wireless receiver.

(And it seems that @BeckyS beat me too it!)

I’ve read good things about the MX Master 3. Back in the day one of those might have helped when I started having elbow pain. My solution was to mix things up by using both a mouse and a trackpad during the day, and switching from my right hand to my left if I felt any strain.

Now it’s rare when I use a mouse more than a hour a week.

Logitech G604 here. I’m a big fan of the advanced macro abilities and plethora of extra buttons on gaming mice. And I would doubly recommend a gaming mouse, with a good optical sensor, if you are after smooth mousing.

Thanks for the advice. I’m not sure I’d know what a gaming mouse is if one ran across my desk, so I’ve ordered the MX Master 3; should be here on Thursday!

You’d know. It would look like someone designed a mouse after a Lamborghini.

I’m on my second Logitech B100. The first one died, but it took well over 10 years for that to happen.

This is a basic two-button, scrollwheel, ambidextrous, wired USB mouse intended for office (not gaming) use. I paid about $8 for the last one, but with Covid+inflation it’s now about $11.
