I use a 3DConnexion CADMouse pro wireless: https://3dconnexion.com/uk/cadmouse/ and I really like it. It fits my hand well and works in wired, bluetooth , or with a wireless usb transmitter. It's got a huge middle mouse button which was the main draw for me.

The downsides are that it seems to have a unique bluetooth firmware that crashes bluetoothd on Linux . I haven't been able to figure it out. It also has this fake "inertial" scrolling which I hated at first but now I quite like it.

On a similar note, I picked up a Contour Unimouse (5 buttons) but it's
not working correctly in Plan 9. I'm not sure if it's related to the
wireless USB receiver or the extra buttons. When I move the mouse left
and right, the cursor moves up and down, and moving the mouse up and
down has no effect on the cursor. Pressing buttons moves the cursor to
the right. Does anyone have experience fixing an issue like this?
