My former vermin (Logitech M555b) has squeaked its last I'm afraid.


The deceased:




I'm currently using a very worn Logitech NX80 which was kind of a precursor to the M555b:




I'm looking for a suitable replacement please in the <= £45 bracket?


I'm after something symmetrical, wireless (propriety or Bluetooth), decent build quality, preferably with a middle mouse button and not too large (as I have quite stubby fingers). The NX80 (above) is very prone to signal issues as it's an early 2.4Ghz design, no Unify etc. so it's not something I plan to keep using longer than I have to.


I've tried a Logitech M557 (successor to the M555b) but found it to be far to light and shares too many similar design characteristics (and likely flaws too).


Advice is much appreciated.

I'm using several different kinds of mice, M305, M315, as well as M235. I find them quite nice.
