I have the very basic Microsoft optical mouse, its not expensive yet its comfortable on my wrist etc due to its ergonomics.

Thats the exact one I have. Very basic, but does the job required.

The decision is yours. Both Mice look reliable. Depends on your requirements whether you go wireless of not.

Don't get wireless. It will kill your wrist even more.

The mouse suggested by Catbert looks like it makes a lot of noise and is hard to push the buttons.

And having to push buttons harder and move a heavier mouse will lead to an increased chance of getting Repetitive Strain Injury.
