[Amazon.ca] AmazonBasics Full-Size Ergonomic Wireless PC Mouse with Fast Scrolling [$28.75]

Edit: Price dropped a few cents to $28.75 from $28.97

Amazon has a branded Logitech Performance MX knock-off for $28.97.
I was watching this on 3xCamels and it's at the lowest price again. I already bought the Costco $40 so I will not be buying this one to share the differences.

Features:
Amazon.ca wrote:
  • Full-size wireless mouse with fast-scrolling, clickable wheel and forward/back thumb buttons for fast, easy navigating through large documents and web pages
  • Ergonomically designed for right-handed users; smooth, gently curved profile fits perfectly in the palm of the hand for enhanced comfort
  • 2.4 GHz wireless connection; uses a small USB receiver that can stay plugged into your computer without obstructing other ports
  • Optical sensor (1600 DPI resolution) works on most surfaces; uses 2 AA batteries (included); battery LED light and on/off switch for extended battery life
  • Compatible with Windows 7, 8, and 10; backed by an AmazonBasics 1-year limited warranty
AmazonBasics - No Dark Field, design seems to be a mix between MX Revolution and Performance MX

Updated the OP with features:
Seems to be the same as Logitech small USB receiver on 2.4GHz.

2.4 GHz wireless connection; uses a small USB receiver that can stay plugged into your computer without obstructing other ports

Nice. Didn't know this existed. Was trying to replace my partner's MX Performance that started to fail recently and this looks like it should do the trick.

Looks like it ONLY has a fast-scrolling wheel which cannot be set to do click-by-click scrolling? The Performance MX has a toggle right beneath the scroll wheel which lets you toggle between both. Doesn't look like this one has the same thing.
There's a sucker born every minute.

True, fast scrolling can be quite annoying, to be honest. Mine is always on click-by-click.

I've got the MX and it's been my mouse style for over a decade, I have no idea why more mice aren't made like this. They make all new mice tiny and useless. That said this is a third the price of a Logitech, at very least it's a great backup, also I've never used the click, I find it irksome, so I'd say that's totally personal preference. If I didn't already have a backup I'd be all over this. And I've added it to cart to recall is when/if I do need it.

Why not just the original ones from Logitech (perhaps not the same MX equivalent, which doesnt seem to be either from specs perspective). M720 is routinely $39 bucks with 2 year warranty.

Mainly do to the ergonomic's of the mouse but it's personal preference.

Here's another one that is a copy cat of the mx performance from verbatim (28.99) if your interested. I got it for work, but found it too light feeling for me.

Haha, we must have bought it at the same time. I've had it since 2012. Best mouse ever. I used to play a lot back then.
The MX has the rechargeable station ...this amazon has batteries.

Too bad they didn’t release this as BT. BT gives more freedom in the sense you won’t need to waste a USB port (or in some cases don’t have a USB port). Looks like a good deal still...
