Glorious Model D- Wireless RGB Gaming Mouse Review

Rating: 8.5.

In today's review, we take a look at the Glorious Model D- Wireless gaming mouse, the smaller version of the popular Model D. The only real difference between this and the standard Model D is the size and weight, making this mouse perfect for gamers with small to medium hand sizes. But how well does it perform?

Pros:

  • Lightweight design.
  • Charging cable doubles as a dongle extender.
  • Extra G-Skates included.
  • Good build quality.
  • The scroll wheel feels great.
  • Left and right-Click (Glorious Switches) are tactical and responsive.
  • Great wireless performance.
  • Software options to preserve battery life.

Cons

  • The design overall is a bit lacklustre.
  • The honeycomb design can be divisive.
  • Some pre-travel on the primary buttons.
  • DPI light underneath seems redundant for everyday use.
  • My thumb has already marked the inside of the mouse (after 2 weeks use).

KitGuru says: For someone with smaller hands (like me) the Glorious Model D- Wireless is a welcome addition to the Glorious family of mice, offering great ergonomics and brilliant performance with the BAMF sensor. The design overall is a bit boring but considering you'll be covering it with your hands, it's not a big deal for me.
