In recent years, two categories of gaming mice have seriously gained a foothold, namely the wireless and the ultra-light ones. The former category has, through the manufacturers’ rapid and proprietary 2.4 GHz protocols, found ways to cut the latencies to achieve the same performance as wired. The ultralight segment instead means pointing devices that peel off unnecessarily to reach weights that are well below 100 grams.
► Test: PC Gaming Race Glorious Model O – gaming mouse weighing only 67 grams
The company Glorious PC Gaming Race was early to punch a hexagon pattern in the plastic for the match weight 67 grams with the Model O mouse, which is still at the forefront when it comes to wired gaming mice with RGB lighting. With minimal weight surcharge, Model O took the step over to wireless last year and now the more ergonomically designed sibling Model D follows.
The name of the newcomer is unsurprisingly Model D Wireless and a comfortable grip is once again one of the product’s main features – alongside the weight of 69 grams. The mouse is adapted for right-handed users with a sloping top and two thumb buttons located on the right side. The right and left mouse button switches are a new variant developed by Glorious PC Gaming Race in collaboration with Kailh, but the service life of these is not specified.
On the top of the mouse there is a button to change the sensitivity and in addition you can see the scroll wheel, which is equipped with RGB lighting. A light strip is also visible on the side of the mouse. The battery is built-in and is charged via USB Type-C where the battery life is specified to a maximum of 71 hours, but this probably only applies with the lighting switched off.
Like the switches, the sensor is a proprietary variant and the company has enlisted the help of reputable Pixart. The wireless communication takes place over 2.4 GHz and a dedicated USB-connected receiver, but exact details such as latencies or the sensor’s sensitivity are shrouded in obscurity. This also applies to the launch date, which is stated to be in the near future and sales will start when Glorious PC Gaming Race is notified that Model D has arrived at dealers. The price is 80 USD, which corresponds to about 825 kronor including VAT, and the product comes in black and white.
