I have a Mastermouse MM530 by Cooler Master at the moment, bought on the basis of its "sturdy" build, but the mouse wheel has been playing up for a while now, occasionally scrolling down when I'm in fact scrolling up.

I'm not even looking for a gaming mouse, just a decent mouse with a clickable scroll wheel. More buttons is nice, but not needed. Any tips?

I've heard good things about ploopy.

The real BIFL part about these is that the externals are 3d-printed with open-source files, so if they ever wear out you can easily print new components, and the trackballs are standard snooker balls, also easily replaceable. They're great.

That's an incredible name.

Very cool! Not easily available here in Europe, though... Or at least some very steep import costs. Bit too much for me, at least.

Shame, this is the suggestion I'm most enthused by.
