You know how things are going: we love to comment on the packaging. With the Glorious Model O they have made a simple and straightforward presentation: matte cardboard box, black and white cover with mouse design and model name printed in silver ink. In the upper corner we can see the logo of the brand and next to the model a reflective label that indicates the color of the model.
On the one side is the Glorious Pc Gaming Race web link and the brand’s logo on the right.
On the back of the box, for its part, we have an overhead view of the keyboard as well as its wrist rest. Additionally, we can read detailed information on the operation of the Omnipoint switches in several languages, among other aspects
The first thing that attracts the attention of this model is its structure. The casing is partially covered with hexagonal perforations that allow the interior circuit to be seen from both the upper and lower face.
This is something that will attract the attention of all those curious who are fans of the circuits, and even more so when the lighting enters the field of play.
On the left side we find the Glorious PC Gaming Race image printed in gray. This is where the two side buttons are located. These have a glossy black finish and make a muffled sound when pressed. Between the two there is a separation of 1.5 mm, which makes them easily distinguishable by passing your thumb over them without looking.
On the right we only have the Glorious logo on the side. The RGB lighting band is also present here as is the left, running through almost the entirety of the design.
At the base we have a total of four extremely soft surfers with rounded edges. Also here is present the die-cutting responsible for minimizing the weight of the product. Right in the center we find the name of the Glorious Model O, DPI LED, maca logo and sensor surrounded by the slogan Competitive E-Sports gaming mouse.
The Glorious Model O cord is not removable. It is a braided model that is lined in a fairly thick fabric and is extremely flexible. This patented format is the Ascend Cord and has a generous 2m length ending as always in a PVC-reinforced USB Type-A port.
Putting the Glorious Model O into Use
A common practice in our mouse analyzes is to test the sensor and its acceleration with 800 base DPI. In general the movement is very, very smooth due to how polished its surfers are, but there is a palpable difference between using the Glorious Model O on a cloth mat and a plastic one. Obviously, although the sensitivity is the same, we will be able to perceive a greater resistance on the fabric, while in plastic it will slide much more fluidly.
We can’t talk about sensitivity and not mention the Glorious Model O’s sensor, the PIXART PMW-3360. This is today one of the best sensors of the manufacturer, with a maximum of 12,000 DPI, 250 IPS and an acceleration force of 50g.
It is currently only surpassed by the PMW 3389 (with 16,000 DPI, 400 IPS and 50g), which makes it a titan in its class. The technical characteristics of the sensor are optimized by the design of the mouse itself, and it is that with only 68g of weight it practically flies on the mat. If, in addition, the one you use is plastic, it practically floats.
Here you have a sample of how the inside of the mouse is also illuminated thanks to the RGB LED bands that run along the sides, making its motherboard even more visible. The wheel as we mentioned at the beginning also has lighting.
As you can imagine, all these little lights are dynamic and their pattern, speed, direction and brightness can be customized in the Glorious Model O software that we can download from its official website.
A mouse worth its salt always brings software, even if it is to increase the psychedelic level of the little lights. Obviously it is not everything, but without a doubt the most attractive.
The Glorious Model O offers five customizable profiles to save to internal memory, so there is no need to have the software always on. In these profiles we can calibrate both their DPI and the lighting of the LED that corresponds to them. It is also possible to have all of them deactivated except one to avoid accidents in the middle of a game.
Other sections of interest are lighting, level of detail (laser), refresh rate, and response time between mouse clicks. Complete, huh? How could it be less and to put the icing on the cake we also have the macro profiles and customization of mouse buttons, which are editable from scratch to make them our own down to the smallest detail.
The Glorious Model O is an efficient mouse, well prepared for what the expert user may expect of it. Having the PIXART PMW 3360 sensor is undoubtedly one of its strongest points coupled with its extremely light weight. The RGB lighting stands out spectacularly thanks to the die-cut design of its structure, which allows us to see the interior and gives an even more special touch to the mouse model.
We understand, however, that for some users, piercings can be a problem with respect to dust, sweat or dirt, so that although aesthetically it is very attractive, it is a very personal question when assessing whether it is practical or not. We would certainly not recommend it to those who are used to eating chips while playing.
For its part, the software is very complete and offers advanced options that will undoubtedly attract the attention of the most inveterate players. We are obviously talking about the characteristics to modify in refresh rates and response times between mouse clicks (advanced option that the program itself warns about before touching). These options accompany classics such as DPI, macros and lighting settings, so for our part we do not consider that it lacks anything
