If you want a good work mouse, get either a logitech mx master, or a Elecom DEFT mdt2dr
I believe that mice are like shoes, you have to try them on to get a perfect fit.
There are a bunch of great recommendations but I find it best to go into a few stores and open the boxes to try the mouse in my hand.
Does it fit my grip style? Does the surface feel cheap or lightweight or plasticy? How do the buttons feel > click and placement?
I Use a Mionix Naos 7000 and its super comfortable. Has a couple extra buttons and other than some basic RGB (which can be turned off) it’s pretty discrete looking.
Zowie all the way
3dconnexion cadmouse is the best non-gaming mouse out there imo.
I recommend getting the matching mousepad. In my experience, mousepad is a larger performance variable than the mouse itself and while there are many good options, the best one is most likely the mousepad that the mouse was designed for.

So in the end I went for a Mionix Naos 7000
I know it is sold as a gaming mouse but it is one of the least offensive looking ones I could find.
Looks fine once the LED is turned off. I don’t have freakishly large or small hands for a man of my size (5ft 11" / 180 cm) but it is a large mouse. Any bigger and it would be to big.
I can get the mouse setup the way I like in Windows and then those settings are held in the the mouses own memory so I never have to think about it in Linux.
Thank you all for your input. I learnt about several new companies / brands I did not know about.
Maybe we should just start a awesome (preferably non-gaming) input device thread to keep up with the mechanical keyboard thread. I absolutely hate track pads, and detest touch screens. MX Master is definitely my main ride. But damn, I need some new wheels. Let us know how that Mionix Naos goes, looks good to me.
The Mionix Naos 7000 is an awesome mouse, recently tho mine have been pretty bad at middle mouse clicking though (I scroll a lot using middle mouse and open new tabs using it as well), so I’m probably gonna try out the https://mionix.io/products/castor-black this time around while the Naos 7000 is quite large so you can comfortably rest your entire hand on it, it also isn’t the lightest mouse on the block
Hell I’m probably just gonna bring it to work with me for use on a macbook air, I barely use middle mouse click there anyway
