Usage & Final Thoughts
Like most mice I review I’ve been using the Model D for a few weeks now as my daily driver. It replaced the Cooler Master MM711, which I have been using for the past month or so. It along with the Model O are ambidextrous mice, while the Model D is designed for right-hand use. So if you are used to an ambidextrous mouse it might take a little while to get used to the Model D. For me the transition was pretty easy and I have to say the Model D is extremely comfortable. Even comparing it to the Model O, the plastic used on the Model D just feels better and more sturdy. The slope down to the right on the mouse feels natural and puts less stress on your wrist.
As far as performance goes the Model D is using the same PitArt PMW3360 optical sensor that we saw in the Model O. So it was very accurate in our testing. The buttons actually felt better than the ones on the Model O. The G-Skates on the bottom of the mouse make it moving around our large gaming surface quite easy and effortless. The first time gaming with the Model D I cranked out a 7-kill win in Apex Legends, which if you watch us on Twitch is not very normal. But in all seriousness, the Model D is one of the most comfortable mice that I have ever used, and I don’t plan on taking it off my desk anytime soon!
Of course one of the big selling points of this mouse is that it is lightweight. It is not the lightest mouse out there, but at only 68g it is pretty light. Having a lighter mouse means that it is easier to move around and your wrist and hand will have less fatigue after longer gaming sessions. As I’ve said before initially I was not sold on the whole lightweight mouse thing, but now I can’t see myself using anything but a lightweight mouse.
One thing I also wanted to point out is that Glorious did improve the cable from the original Model O. That is one thing I think Cooler Master had Glorious beat at when we looked at their MM711.
The Glorious Model D (matte black) is selling at our favorite online retailer for $49.99. At that price we think it is a steal! Overall ThinkComputers gives the Glorious PC Gaming Race Model D Gaming Mouse a 10 out of 10 score and our Editor’s Choice Award!
