Our Analysis and Test Results
The defining characteristic of this mouse is its light weight — it tips the scales at a mere 59 grams. We like lightweight mice because low inertial mass equates to faster response times. We realize that weight is preferential but, let's face it, when it comes to redirecting the motion of an object, you can't win an argument with physics.
As far as hardware goes, the Glorious Model O- comes loaded with a flawless PMW 3360 optical sensor with adjustable DPI/CPI of 400 to 3200, a tracking speed of 250+ inches per second, and a polling rate that maxes out at 1000 Hz. Rounding out the specs are Omron mechanical switches — a favorite of many gamers.
Occasionally, we come across a product that fairly and accurately reflects its quality and specs in its price. The Glorious Model O- is one such product. One gets just what they pay for with this mouse.
The primary gripe with the Glorious Model O- is its lack of customization options. Don't get us wrong, it has quality customization options where they count the most. However, when compared to the competition, it's below average in this regard.Specifically, the Glorious Model O- lacks weight and scroll wheel resistance adjustments, and onboard memory. Also, the button and lighting alterations require the user to engage the manufacturer's software.
