Never found a mouse I was happy with, they all have wheels with stupid incremental notches which are designed for scrolling spreadsheets. Supposedly there are some Logitech mice out there with so called “hyper scroll“ free spinning wheels but they always seep, to be weird awkward right handed things.
The other issue is of using a mouse with a fullsized keyboard, the ergonomics just don’t feel right, the mouse and hand is too far away from the keyboard.
I used a Sensei Raw mouse, it is ambidexdrous, but was annoying with all these buttons made for gamers, (annoying is everything is made for gamers now). I physically removed all the side buttons, it felt ok, but the left and right buttons feel bad and not always positive had to click many times twice to work, no gestures, bad scroll wheel, argh.
I gave up on the mouse idea and started thinking about on solution based on experience with MacBook Pro 2010 trackpad.
In the end I decided on a Magic Keyboard and Magic Trackpad mounted in a moulded housing called the eXpress Keyboard Platform.

It’s not perfect, I actually hate the feel of the keyboard, probably the worst feeling Apple keyboard I’ve used, and hate the full sized left/right arrow keys, make way to many mistakes on it. The Trackpad is in my experience obnoxiously large, it really is way way bigger than it needs to be.
These are the compromises over the mouse solution. The benefit is the trackpad has silky smooth scrolling and feels beautiful, it has all the nice gestures is nice ergonomically, much nicer than mouse with full sized keyboard. Although the extra obscenely sized Trackpad is not as ergonomic as my 2010 17” MacBook Pro, and the MBP keyboard feels so so much softer and nicer than that hard and brutal feeling keys on Magic Keyboard.
This could be improved, the size of the Magic Trackpad 2 would be better suited to a full sized Keyboard moulded in the eXpress Keyboard Platform. If only the Keyboard was the same as the ones form 10 years ago, full sized wired keyboard but with LED backlit, this would be closest to perfect solution for me.
On my Mac Pro 4.1-5.1 I use a many year old cheap Logitech usb mouse , on my HP z2 ,I use the generic mouse that it came with , on my MBP's I use a Logitech v470 bluetooth mouse . All 3 fit my hand comfortably , work reliably ; unlike the horrid Magic Mouse that I wasted money on . It looks great , but is an ergonomic nightmare if you have big hands and a touch of arthritis in your fingers . Apple would do well to subcontract their mouse (mice)(and keyboards) to Logitech . Just ship a basic $20 wired mouse (and wired keyboard) with their systems that folks can use rather than an unusable work of art .
