Good bluetooth mouse with programmable buttons?


Well-Known Member
I'd like to find a decent Bluetooth mouse with programmable thumb buttons. Have seen some with thumb buttons but the buttons were not programmable.

Any suggestions?
I've seen a few on eBay that look good although I'm not a fan of shopping on eBay - have had identity theft problems before. Here is a Dell mouse:

There's a good overview of the button programming here [video=youtube;m6nKgGFQrzM]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m6nKgGFQrzM[/video]

I have just ordered one.
I'm not interested in the programmable buttons, but I'm one the quest for my perfect BT mouse.

My Buffalo BT mouse that works well on my Dell V131 does not work well with my Surface Pro (it keeps going to sleep, sometimes even after 5 seconds of inactivity, and needs to be shaken for about 2 seconds to wake up - it doesn't do this on the Dell)

I bought a MS Bluetooth Notebook 5000 mouse, but the wheel button is really sensitive and I keep accidentally clicking it - something that I have not had a problem with in the past, and I've probably used 20 mice over the last 15-20 years.
