My Zowie EC2 eVo mouse is acting really weird. Using it on an Artisan red clothpad, but it is skipping all over the place. Not sure if it is a dodgy sensor, a bad combination with the pad or something else...

Anyone had a similiar issue? If not, can you tell me what the best budget mice are to buy these days?

If I have to buy a new one, I don't want to spend a lot. Are there no-name brands which perform well now? I am a bit out of the loop.

Thanks for any help.
