Glorious Gaming is fast becoming a company worth keeping an eye on in the world of PC gaming. Their GMMK is frequently mentioned on the mechanical keyboard subreddit and they were one of the first gaming peripheral companies to do a DIY version of their mechanical keyboard. But I’m not here to talk about keyboards today. A few weeks ago (before glory vacation in Kauai) I was able to come across the Model O gaming mouse – an ambidextrous solution for all your clicking needs. I came away pretty impressed, especially by the quality-to-price ratio, although I remember it being pretty close to being too large for my hands (yes: I do have pretty little hands. lovely). Well, the glory has clearly gone beyond me and both the O and D models (both ambidextrous and right-handed) have the ‘minus sign’ tag, shrinking their size a bit and are even lighter than before amazingly. In this article, we’ll take a quick look at both, and if you’re looking for a closer look at the Glorious mouse, you should check out our Model O review.

The minus line are the smaller siblings of their full-size counterparts, the Model O and Model D. The Glorious mice are designed to fill a sizable gap in the gaming market: quality parts. quantity at a price not exceeding the bank. They feature best-in-class ceramic mouse feet, sturdy plastic bodies with honeycomb cutouts for weight reduction, and a proprietary mouse sensor that boasts a maximum DPI of 19,000 and industry-standard polling rates. is 1,000Hz. All of this comes with some sleek RGB lighting, tablet-like battery life (with lights off), in a $60 package that makes the standard O and D models well worth it. price.
Just like their bigger brothers, the first thing you’ll notice is the quality of the build. Even for a mouse that’s so light (58 grams for the O model and 61 grams for the D model), you won’t find any cheap materials on the mouse. The honey-brushed exterior still feels solid and steady in your hand, and the RGB lighting is just as vivid. There’s no indication that any quality parts have been sacrificed to eliminate size and weight – right down to the finest ceramic gasket on the underside.
The Glorious Mouse has given me one of the best wireless experiences I’ve had in my years of gaming. Not once have I had a signal problem between the wireless sensor and the mouse – which we wireless users know is a blemish for the industry. The ceramic foot glides over any surface I can throw at it as if it weren’t there, and I’m using some magical frictionless trackpad. With RGB on, I could game for a day or two without needing to recharge. With RGB off, I don’t have to charge it every few days – the mouse I have connected to my laptop can go a few hours a day on the first charge – and that was almost two weeks ago . And if you’re not a fan of looking for a wireless vibe, the supplied cable will fit the mouse as if you had to stay there the whole time without worrying about it falling out.
Now the size difference isn’t really that much but it makes a noticeable difference in your hand. Although I only have the O sample for direct comparison, the ratios seem to match from the full size D model specifications to the D- and the minus line manages to keep the exact same width while shave about 8mm on the palm-point of the mouse finger. Like I said before, it doesn’t really look or feel like much of a change but it does make a significant difference in your hands – especially if the full-size models are just comfortable. for your hand size .
However, aside from the changes in size and weight, there really isn’t much to write home about. They use the same great BAMF sensor as their big brothers and boast the same 80 million click switches. There’s really nothing you have to sacrifice by choosing the larger over the smaller or vice versa – as you should consider one of the company’s founding philosophies to not force consumers to sacrifice devices. their to save money.
All in all, I’ve been so impressed with the mice in general, that I just ordered their GMMK keyboard for my own price because they seem like a company worth supporting (and largely because I’m a keyboard hoarder). If you’re looking for a new mouse, have big or small hands and like quality products at an affordable price, don’t leave the mouse from Glorious off your list.
