From Heavy to Light Weights, The Model D Reigns Supreme
Let me begin this review by stating I am in no way supported or sponsored by pcgamingrace.com or anyone affiliated. I am just an extremely pleased customer.
While there are many who have already heard the tales of Glorious mice among the competitive and causal gaming communities, I had a hard time believing any hype going into this product because at the end of the day its just a mouse, right? Coming from the SteelSeries Rival 650 and then Logitech G908 sure puts a perspective on the background I have with heavy, wireless gaming mice. My first lightweight mouse was this Model D followed by the Model O, Corsair MM710, and finally the Zowie EC-1. Even after long-term usage of all of these other lightweight mice I find myself coming back to my Model D and falling in love with it all over again. Now after diving into a little of the background I have with mice, let tear into my opinion on why this mouse was made for my hand and any built like it.
To start, lets talk about the overall build quality of the actual mouse and then the cable. The chassis of the mouse rocks their honeycomb design that I thought would be a bother but after half a year with the mouse I can say it doesnt get in the way. The whole reason it feels so great in the hand is because at 68 grams, the mouse has enough weight to be noticed in the hand but that is it. Now lets talk about the legendary, 'Ascended' cable. I have tried plenty of oddball cable configurations and designs across many different products and this cable is by far my favorite. It fits in ordinary cable management options, its incredibly silky, and you literally will forget about it unless caught on something. For a mere cable, this alone has impressed me greatly for Glorious mice. Almost forgot to mention another big reason these mice glide so well across a mouse pad is the 'G-Skates' mouse feet. While many mouse feet feel and look the same, these G-Skates preform unlike any other. Across 3 different brand name mouse pads the Model D has no trouble gliding across for quick flicks or casual browsing. The lightweight body combined with the cable are unlike any other. 11 years and I can say I have never been so pleased by a mouse every since time my hand is lucky to lay upon it.
Now in terms of performance, the Model D strives in not only gaming situations but everyday productivity. Personally I leave one mouse plugged in for all activities but I understand the need for a mouse for macro-intensive programs. As far as my editing, gaming, and browsing needs can easy be obtain with the Model D. In terms of in-game performance there is no perfect way to describe the feeling besides lightweight and reliable. While the mouse may feel light as a feather, one would think you're accuracy would diminish. Even with not the world's most steady hands, I have no trouble knowing exactly where my mouse is pointing or when it is going to land on a point. While this could be subjective to my setup and comforts, I am sure even the most casual user will be able to understand the difference between Glorious mice and many others.
To conclude this quick review, we should rap it up with a final thought about why I believe if you are in the market, this in the mouse you should try. Price point, customer service, and information. The Model D retails for $49.99, comes with a 2-year warranty, and has a large community of users and modders of all levels. You can not currently find another mouse with the background and love the Glorious mouse line has. In my heart, this silly mouse will rest as one of my favorites for the time being. I hope anyone who made it this far into the rant about a plastic cheese mouse should spend that hard-earned cash on one because you will understand how glorious a mouse can be. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
