Logitech G604 Mouse. Protruded buttons for the thumb. These are excellent design. You can feel which button's which. The two on bottom row front have lower height, so it is more easy to distinguish them. Buy at amazon 1920×1304

I bought it on 2020-07-08. It is very nice. The ghub software to program the mouse is lousy, but if you are patent, you can program all the buttons into the onboard memory. Then, you can use the mouse on any machine and operating system without needing ghub present.

G-hub, Worst Software

The software to program the mouse, is worst on earth.

Very difficult to understand the user interface. You have to spend at least 1 hour trial and error to understand how to program the buttons for setting the onboard memory.

However, the ghub is capable to program the onboard memory for all the buttons.

For detail why ghub is so bad, see Logitech G-Hub is the Worst Software

Tips:

In the onboard memory screen, when you make a change to the profile, it'll take about 10 seconds for the software to send the signal wirelessly to set the firmware in the mouse. During this time, don't move your mouse too much.

If you screwed up, and the ghub gets stuck on its flash screen or blank screen etc, the solution is delete the ghub and reinstall it.
