Glorious PC Gaming Race Model D Overview
So first off we received the matte black version of the Model D. Glorious offers the Model D in both white and black versions with either matte or glossy finished. The matte versions come in at 68g in weight, while the glossy versions are 69g. This is compared to the 67g of the Model O, and 58g of the newer Model 0-. Also for those interested the Cooler Master MM711 is 60g.
As I mentioned the Model D is a right-handed ergonomic mouse, so it sort of curves in to the right. The “hump” on the mouse is actually larger compared to the Model O as well. Here are some shots comparing the Model D to the Model O. The Model D is of course the black mouse.
Starting on the top of the mouse you of course have the cut-outs which help keep the weight of the mouse down. There are two main buttons, a smaller buttun in-between them (DPI change), and of course your scroll wheel. The scroll wheel is wrapped in rubber to make it comfortable and easy to use. The Model D slopes to the right being that it is a right-handed mouse.
On the left side of the mouse there are two thumb buttons and the Glorious PC Gaming Race logo. On the opposite side there are no buttons at all.
Flipping the mouse over to the bottom most of it is cut out, of course to cut down on the overall weight of the mouse. On the top and bottom you have two G-Skates. These will help the Model D glide effortlessly across your gaming surface. Glorious does include an extra set as well. Right in the center of the mouse is your sensor, which is the PixART PMW3360. It is a 12,000 DPI optical sensor. Right next to it is a DPI indication LED. This makes it easy for you to know what DPI level you are on.
As far as cabling on the Model D you get the new and improved Glorious Ascend cable. It is a very lightweight and flexible. Compared to the original Ascend cable it is thicker, but seems lighter. It actually reminds me of the cable on the Cooler Master MM711. At the end of the cable you have a gold-plated USB connector.
