Microsoft makes high-end, high-quality peripherals
Since my high school days, I'd been using Microsoft wireless mice. My favorite has been the Wireless Laser Mouse 8000, which I have two till this day. After over a decade, they still work well (even though my primary mouse is now a more modern model from Logitech).
