The Glorious Model D is an excellent gaming mouse that's designed to be as light as possible. It's a more ergonomic version of the ambidextrous Glorious Model O and performs very well. It's very comfortable to use and is better suited for palm or claw grips. Its honeycomb pattern design makes it very lightweight, the feet glide very well, and it even comes with additional skates. It features RGB lighting and can be customized with presets inside its software.

Our Verdict

6.7 Office/Multimedia

The Glorious Model D is an okay office mouse. It has a comfortable right-slanted design and is very well-built. The two side buttons can also help with making web browsing a bit easier. Although its cable is amazingly light, it still doesn't offer the versatility of a wireless design.

Pros
  • Very lightweight.
  • Comfortable to use for a wide range of hand sizes and grips.
  • Amazing cable.
Cons
  • Has a bit more flex than the Model O.
  • Model O is a better option if you use a fingertip grip.
8.4 Video Games (FPS)

The Glorious Model D is great for FPS games. Its click latency is very low, it's a very lightweight mouse, and its right-slanted design is comfortable to use. However, if you use a fingertip grip, you'll be better off with an ambidextrous mouse like the Model O, and smaller hands might even prefer looking at the Glorious Model O-. Its feet are great, and you can even stick the included larger skates if you prefer them.

Pros
  • Very lightweight.
  • Comfortable to use for a wide range of hand sizes and grips.
  • Amazing cable.
Cons
  • Has a bit more flex than the Model O.
  • Model O is a better option if you use a fingertip grip.
7.1 Video Games (MMO)

The Glorious Model D is a decent MMO mouse. It has two side buttons which give you extra inputs, but it won't be as amazing as a dedicated MMO mouse with a plethora of side buttons.

Pros
  • Very lightweight.
  • Comfortable to use for a wide range of hand sizes and grips.
  • Amazing cable.
Cons
  • Has a bit more flex than the Model O.
  • Model O is a better option if you use a fingertip grip.
8.7 Ultra-Light Gaming

The Glorious Model D is an excellent ultra-light gaming mouse. Its honeycomb pattern design makes it one of the lightest mice we've tested so far. It also glides very well thanks to the great feet. Also, it has one of the best cables we've tested so far and even has very low click latency.

Pros
  • Very lightweight.
  • Comfortable to use for a wide range of hand sizes and grips.
  • Amazing cable.
Cons
  • Has a bit more flex than the Model O.
  • Model O is a better option if you use a fingertip grip.
4.9 Travel

Like most wired-only gaming mice, the Glorious Model D isn't designed for travel. It takes a lot of space, especially with the non-detachable cable. It isn't the easiest to use in a restricted space like on a train or plane.

Pros
  • Very lightweight.
  • Comfortable to use for a wide range of hand sizes and grips.
  • Amazing cable.
Cons
  • Has a bit more flex than the Model O.
  • Model O is a better option if you use a fingertip grip.

The Glorious Model D is very similar in style to the Glorious Model O, but it has a more ergonomic shape with a right-slanted design. It features two RGB strips on the sides and around the scroll wheel. Its body is covered by a honeycomb pattern, which reduces its weight. You can get this mouse in black or white, and you can choose between a matte finish or a glossy one.

Like most wired-only mice, the Glorious Model D isn't very portable. It won't be the ideal travel companion and it might be hard to put in a laptop case, but people looking for a gaming mouse for their home setup shouldn't be bothered by this.

The Glorious Model D is very lightweight, especially if you take away the weight from the cable by using a mouse bungee. However, without modding the mouse, there's no weight optimization. If you want a lightweight mouse but aren't a fan of the honeycomb design, check out the even lighter Razer Deathadder V2 Mini.

Build Quality

The build quality is decent. The mouse is made from hard plastic and feels very solid, although the joints where the RGB lights and the left/right-click buttons meet at the back panel have a decent amount of flex, which the Glorious Model O doesn't have. While there's no major issue with this mouse, it does feel a bit flimsy when squeezed. However, most people shouldn't notice it during regular use. If you're looking for a similar mouse with a honeycomb design but sturdier-feeling build quality, check out the XTRFY M42. Or, if you're interested in a mouse with a similar shape but with a solid plastic body, check out the BenQ ZOWIE EC1.

The Glorious Model D is very comfortable to use. Its right-slanted design and body shape are very pleasant to hold and make the mouse suitable for a wide range of grips and hand sizes. It's better suited for a palm or claw grip, and we suggest getting the Glorious Model O if you're a fingertip user.

The Glorious Model D has two side buttons, which is enough for most people who mainly play FPS games, but won't be great for MMOs. Although you can create multiple profiles using the software, you'll have to cycle between them inside it, as you can't program a button to change profiles. The side buttons also have a decent amount of pre-travel, but all buttons are clicky and the side buttons are slightly bigger than the Model O buttons, which better suit an ergo-shaped mouse.

The click latency of this gaming mouse is very low. The mouse clicks feel responsive and you won't notice any delay when using the mouse. We tested the mouse at the lowest debounce setting, which can be set inside the software. If you prefer something with even lower click latency, then check out the Cooler Master MM720.

The Glorious Model D software is great and offers easy customization to the lighting or sensitivity settings. However, if you have the Model O, note that this software is different from the Model D's, and will require another download. If you prefer a mouse with software support for macOS, check out the SteelSeries Aerox 3.

Note: There's a known issue that the software doesn't detect the Model D at first. You need to install a separate firmware updater for the mouse before the software can detect it.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

We tested the Glorious Model D. It's also available in a smaller size, called the Glorious Model D-. They perform identically, but the Model D- is lighter.

Compared To Other Mice

The Glorious Model D is an excellent lightweight gaming mouse, although there are some lighter options like the Finalmouse Ultralight 2 - Cape Town. However, the Model D has a nice and comfortable ergo, right-slanted design that's very comfortable for a wide range of grips and hand sizes. It also has dedicated software for customization options and it feels very well-built. See our recommendations for the best gaming mice, the best wireless gaming mice, and the best mice overall.

Glorious Model O

The Glorious Model O and the Glorious Model D are both ultra-light gaming mice that perform very similarly. The main difference is the shape of these two mice. The Model O is an ambidextrous mouse, while the Model D has a right-slanted design. The Model D also has a higher lift-off distance and seems to have more flex than the Model O.

Razer DeathAdder V2

The Glorious Model D and the Razer DeathAdder V2 are two great gaming mice with a slanted design. The Glorious is lighter and feels a bit cheaper, although it still feels premium. Its cable also feels lighter and is very flexible. On the other hand, the Razer has a shorter lift-off distance and has more programmable buttons, although both mice only have two side buttons.

Razer DeathAdder Elite

The Glorious Model D is a better gaming mouse than the Razer DeathAdder Elite. It's noticeably lighter and has one of the best cables we've tested. The Razer feels a bit better built, but the cable can keep many kinks from packaging and creates drag when moving the mouse.

Razer Viper Mini

The Glorious Model D and the Razer Viper Mini are both amazing gaming mice, but the Razer performs a bit better overall. The Razer is slightly smaller and lighter, it has more programmable inputs, and its click latency is lower. The Glorious features two RGB strips on the sides and around the scroll wheel and has a honeycomb body, which some people may prefer. Its bigger shape makes it more suitable for larger hands.

Logitech G502 HERO

The Glorious Model D is a much lighter mouse than the Logitech G502 HERO. The Glorious might not feel as solid and well-built as the Logitech, but its cable is much more flexible and lightweight. On the other hand, the Logitech has a comfortable thumb rest and comes with multiple weights. It also has a lot more programmable buttons, and you can unlock the wheel for infinite scrolling. The software is also available on macOS, which isn't the case with the Model D.

Razer Viper

The Glorious Model D and the Razer Viper are both excellent choices for ultra-light gaming. The two mice have a similar shape and weigh almost the same, but the Glorious features a honeycomb body and has multiple RGB zones, giving it a more gamer-centric look. On the other hand, the Razer has an ambidextrous design that feels more solid overall. It also has two side buttons on each side, while the Glorious only has two standard ones on the left side. Performance-wise, the Razer has a better sensor with a wider CPI range, less CPI variation, and a lower lift-off distance.

Cooler Master MM711

The Glorious Model D and the Cooler Master MM711 are excellent ultra-light gaming mice. The Cooler Master is lighter, feels much sturdier, and has a wider CPI range. Comparatively, the Glorious is larger, making it more comfortable for larger hand sizes. It also has a lower lift-off distance and has a much lower click latency. Both mice are well-suited for all grip types, but the Cooler Master has an ambidextrous shape and size best for smaller hands, while the Glorious has a right-handed shape and is much better suited for larger hands.

Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT

The Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT performs slightly better overall, but the Glorious Model D is still amazing for ultra-light gaming. The Logitech is smaller and lighter, and its ambidextrous design should fit most hand sizes and grip types. It has a wider CPI range, less CPI variation, and a lower lift-off distance. It’s possible to use it wired or wirelessly. That said, the Glorious has a unique look, with a honeycomb pattern and multiple RGB strips. It also has better feet and a more flexible cable. However, it may not be comfortable for smaller hands using a claw or a fingertip grip.

Razer Viper Ultimate

The Razer Viper Ultimate is an amazing FPS gaming mouse, while the Glorious Model D is an excellent choice for ultra-light gaming. The Razer has an ambidextrous design with two side buttons on each side and feels more solid and comfortable overall. It has a wider CPI range, a lower lift-off distance, and more programmable inputs. Also, it can be used wired or wirelessly with its USB receiver, making it quite versatile. That said, the Glorious is slightly lighter and features a honeycomb design with RGB strips. It’s well-suited for most hand sizes using any grip type.

Glorious Model O Wireless

The Glorious Model O Wireless is better for most uses than the Glorious Model D thanks to its wireless design. The Wireless has much better build quality, a wider CPI range, lower lift-off distance, and is a bit more consistent at various speeds. Its wireless design also makes it easier to take around with you. However, the Model D is a better choice for those with small hands using the palm grip. Some people also may prefer its wired-only design and slightly slanted body.

Logitech G Pro Wireless

The Logitech G Pro Wireless and the Glorious Model D are very different mice. The Logitech is very versatile and performs impressively well for gaming, working, and even traveling. It’s well-suited for most hand-sizes using any grip type, and you can use it wired or wirelessly with its USB receiver. It also has a wider CPI range, practically no CPI variation, and a lower lift-off distance. On the other hand, the Glorious is wired-only and very lightweight, making it a better option for fans or ultra-light gaming. It also features a honeycomb body and more RGB strips, which some people may prefer.

Logitech G403 HERO

The Glorious Model D and the Logitech G403 HERO have different designs, but both are excellent gaming mice. The Glorious is designed for ultra-light gaming, with a honeycomb pattern that makes it very lightweight. It also has better feet that glide very smoothly. On the other hand, the Logitech has a more neutral look and is a bit more versatile, as it also performs well as an office mouse. Its sensor has a wider CPI range, less CPI variation, and a lower lift-off distance.

Glorious Model D-

The Glorious Model D- is slightly better for ultra-light gaming than the Glorious Model D because it's lighter. The Minus is smaller and better suited for those with small hands, while the Model D is aimed at those with larger hands. Besides that, both mice have the same performance.

Glorious Model O-

The Glorious Model D and the Glorious Model O- are both excellent ultra-light gaming mice that perform quite similarly with slightly different designs. The Model O- is smaller and lighter and has an ambidextrous design that feels a bit more solid overall. It’s a good fit for most hand sizes, except for extra-large hands using a palm or a claw grip. On the contrary, the Model D has a right-handed design that’s slightly bigger and heavier. Smaller hands may have a hard time using it with a claw or a fingertip grip.

BenQ ZOWIE EC2

The Glorious Model D is better than the BenQ ZOWIE EC2. The Glorious has a wider and adjustable CPI range, a slightly lower click latency, RGB lighting, and software to remap the buttons. On the other hand, the BenQ is fully compatible with macOS.

Razer Orochi V2

The Razer Orochi V2 is a good wireless gaming mouse, while the Glorious Model D is a great choice for ultra-light gaming. The Razer connects wirelessly with a USB receiver or via Bluetooth and has a lower minimum lift-off distance. It's best suited for fingertip grip, but only for large and medium-sized hands, though smaller hands can use it with other grip types. On the other hand, the Glorious is significantly lighter and has better mouse feet that glide more smoothly. It's well-suited for palm grip for all hand sizes and claw and fingertip grip for all but small hands.

Logitech G203 LIGHTSYNC

The Glorious Model D has comparable performance to the Logitech G203 LIGHTSYNC. The Glorious is a right-handed mouse that's significantly lighter, has a more flexible cable, better mouse feet, and a wider CPI range. The Glorious is best suited for a palm grip for any hand size and suitable for a claw or fingertip grip for larger hands. On the other hand, the Logitech feels better-built, has an ambidextrous shape, a lower lift-off distance, a more adjustable CPI, and a somewhat better click latency. It's best suited for a fingertip grip for any hand size and a palm or claw grip for smaller hands.

SteelSeries Rival 3

The SteelSeries Rival 3 and the Glorious Model D are both good wired gaming mice. The Glorious is a bit lighter and is better suited for a palm grip, which the SteelSeries is better suited for a claw grip. The Glorious has a much nicer cable, a slightly lower click latency, and a higher max CPI. On the other hand, the SteelSeries has more programmable buttons, and its software can be installed on both Windows and macOS.

Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury

Overall, the Glorious Model D is better than the Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury. The Glorious is much lighter, a lot more comfortable to use, and it has a higher-quality cable that doesn't get in the way. On the flip side, the Logitech has a better build quality, lower click latency, and its customization software is compatible with macOS.

Endgame Gear XM1r

The Endgame Gear XM1r and the Glorious Model D are similar ultra-light gaming mice. The Endgame Gear has an ambidextrous shape, a solid plastic body, and better click latency, but it lacks RGB, companion software, and only has four onboard CPI settings. The Glorious is lighter, has a honeycomb design, and has companion software that allows for the customization of lighting, button programming, and sensor settings, but the software isn't compatible with macOS.

Razer DeathAdder V2 Mini

The Razer DeathAdder V2 Mini is better than the Glorious Model D. The Razer is better built and lighter than the Glorious. The Razer also has a lower click latency and more programmable buttons. However, people with larger hands might be more comfortable with the Glorious thanks to its bigger size, and it's quieter to use.

BenQ ZOWIE EC1

The Glorious Model D and the BenQ ZOWIE EC1 are wired gaming mice with similar shapes, but the Glorious has better performance overall. The Glorious was a honeycomb body and is much lighter. It has much better click latency, a much more lightweight and flexible cable, better virgin grade PTFE mouse feet, a wider CPI range, and a CPI you can adjust by increments of 100. It also has RGB lighting, and you can reprogram buttons using the companion software. It's well suited to all grip types and almost all hand sizes, but those with small hands may not be able to reach all buttons using a fingertip or claw grip. The BenQ has a solid plastic body and feels sturdier, but it lacks companion software for customization. It's suitable for small, medium, and large hands using a palm or claw grip, but only those with larger hands will be able to use a fingertip grip comfortably.

Finalmouse Ultralight 2 - Cape Town

The Finalmouse Ultralight 2 - Cape Town and the Glorious Model D are two amazing lightweight gaming mice, but for different reasons. If you want the lightest option, go for the Finalmouse, but if you prefer an ergo-shaped design with a right slant, then the Model D will be a better option.

Cooler Master MM710

The Glorious Model D is a slightly better mouse than the Cooler Master MM710. The main difference between those two ultra-light gaming mice is that the Cooler Master is noticeably smaller and lighter, but its build quality isn't the best. The Glorious also has a right-slanted design, which is better for a palm or claw grip, while the short body of the Cooler Master is better for a fingertip grip.

XTRFY M42

The XTRFY M42 and the Glorious Model D are both excellent wired ultra-light gaming mice. The XTRFY is lighter, has a more ambidextrous design, and features modular back panels. However, it has limited CPI preset options. The Glorious has a right-handed ergonomic shape, lower click latency, and software for customization, which the XTRFY lacks.

XTRFY M4 RGB

The Glorious Model D is slightly better than the XTRFY M3 RGB. The Glorious is lighter, has lower click latency, and software for customization. However, the XTRFY has a better build quality and a lower lift-off distance.

Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum

The Glorious Model D is an excellent ultra-light gaming mouse, while the Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrums is more versatile. The Logitech has many more programmable buttons, a scroll wheel with L/R tilt buttons that unlocks for free-scrolling mode, and companion software compatible with Windows and macOS. However, it's much heavier. Comparatively, the Glorious has a much more flexible cable, better mouse feet, and a more consistent sensor. Both mice are well-suited to all grip types but best suited for larger hand sizes.

G-Wolves Hati Medium

The Glorious Model D and the G-Wolves Hati Medium are excellent ultra-light gaming mice. They're similarly sized, but the Glorious will be better for a claw or palm grip due to its ergonomic slanted design, while the ambidextrous design of the G-Wolves is better for fingertip grip users. The Glorious' cable is slightly better, but the G-Wolves doesn't seem to have any flex to its body like the Glorious has.

ROCCAT Kone Pro Air

The ROCCAT Kone Pro Air is a somewhat better gaming mouse than the Glorious Model D. The Glorious is a wired-only mouse that's marginally lighter and has somewhat lower click latency, though the difference likely isn't enough to be noticeable for either. On the other hand, the ROCCAT connects wired or wirelessly with its USB receiver or Bluetooth, has a wider CPI range, a more precisely adjustable CPI, and a lower lift-off distance. Both mice are well-suited for all grip types and nearly all hand sizes.

Corsair SABRE PRO

The Corsair SABRE PRO and the Glorious Model D are both excellent lightweight gaming mice with right-handed designs suitable for all grip types depending on hand size. The Corsair has lower click latency and a CPI with a wider range that you can adjust by increments of one. It also has a maximum polling rate of 8000Hz, and the companion software is compatible with Windows and macOS. On the other hand, the Glorious is slightly lighter but feels a little flimsier, and its companion software isn't compatible with macOS.

Logitech G403 Wireless Gaming Mouse

For FPS players, the Glorious Model D is a better mouse than the Logitech G403 Wireless Gaming Mouse. The Glorious is noticeably lighter, which allows for quicker movements, and it's also one of the most comfortable mice to use. It even has a very flexible and very lightweight cable. On the other hand, the Logitech software is compatible with macOS, and you can be a lot more precise with your CPI adjustments than the Glorious' software. The Logitech also feels a bit better-built than the Glorious.

XTRFY MZ1 โ€“ Zyโ€™s Rail

The Glorious Model D and the XTRFY MZ1 – Zy’s Rail are excellent ultra-light gaming mice. The Glorious has a right-handed design and is a bit lighter, has a more precisely adjustable CPI, much better click latency, and companion software for customization and button mapping. On the other hand, the XTRFY has an ambidextrous shape, a wider CPI range, and a lower lift-off distance.

BenQ ZOWIE ZA13-B

The Glorious Model D and the BenQ ZOWIE ZA13-B are gaming mice with different designs. The Glorious is a better option if you prefer an ultra-light mouse with a slanted, right-handed design. Also, it has lower click latency, programmable buttons, and customization software. You can also adjust the CPI in increments of 100. On the other hand, the BenQ is a good gaming option if you prefer an ambidextrous shape with no RGB or software, and you don't mind having only four CPI presets to cycle through.

The Glorious Model D is a better wired gaming mouse than the BenQ ZOWIE S1. The Glorious is significantly lighter, has much lower click latency, a more flexible cable, better mouse feet, a wider CPI range, and a CPI you can adjust by increments of 100. It also has companion software, though it's only compatible with Windows. It's well-suited for nearly all hand sizes and grip types.

Cooler Master MM720

The Cooler Master MM720 is better than the Glorious Model D. The Cooler Master is much lighter, has more programmable inputs, and lower click latency. However, the Glorious is better suited for any hand size using the palm grip.

Corsair SABRE RGB PRO

The Corsair SABRE RGB PRO and the Glorious Model D are excellent wired gaming mice suitable for larger hands using all grip types, but they have several significant differences. The Corsair feels sturdier, has a maximum polling rate of 8000Hz, and has a better click latency, though the difference is small enough that most people are unlikely to notice a difference. Its companion software is also compatible with Windows and macOS. On the other hand, the Glorious is lighter, has a significantly more flexible cable, and much better mouse feet. Unfortunately, it has a higher lift-off distance, its CPI is only adjustable by increments of 100, and its companion software isn't compatible with macOS.

SteelSeries Rival 100

The Glorious Model D is a significantly better wired gaming mouse than the SteelSeries Rival 100. It has a right-handed design and is much lighter, has a much more flexible cable, better mouse feet, a higher maximum CPI, a more precisely adjustable CPI, and lower click latency. Unfortunately, its software is only compatible with Windows. Comparatively, the SteelSeries feels sturdier, but its software is compatible with Windows and macOS. The Glorious is almost universally well-suited to all grip styles and hand sizes, while the SteelSeries is best-suited for a claw or palm grip for most hand sizes.

Corsair HARPOON RGB PRO

The Glorious Model D is an excellent ultra-light gaming mouse, while the Corsair HARPOON RGB PRO is a great budget FPS gaming mouse. The Glorious has a honeycomb body that makes it significantly lighter. It also has a much lower click latency, a more flexible cable, and feet that glide better. It's well suited for all grip types, but only for larger hands. Unfortunately, its software is only compatible with Windows. The Corsair is heavier but feels sturdier and has customization software compatible with Windows and macOS. It's best suited for a claw grip for all hand sizes.

ROCCAT Kone Pro

The Glorious Model D and the ROCCAT Kone Pro are both excellent lightweight gaming mice and are nearly the same weight, though the ROCCAT is marginally lighter, despite its solid plastic body. The ROCCAT also feels sturdier, has a wider CPI range, a more adjustable CPI, and a lower lift-off distance. On the other hand, the Glorious has smoother-gliding mouse feet. Both mice are well-suited for all grip types and very nearly all hand sizes.

Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum

The Glorious Model D is an excellent ultra-lightweight mouse, while the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum is great wireless gaming mouse. The Glorious is a wired mouse that's substantially lighter and has a better cable and mouse feet. Comparatively, the Logitech connects wirelessly with its USB receiver, has two extra side buttons, more precise CPI adjustment steps, and a lower lift-off distance. Both mice are well-suited to all grip types and very nearly all hand sizes.

BenQ ZOWIE ZA12-B

The Glorious Model D and the BenQ ZOWIE ZA12-B are gaming mice with different designs. The Glorious is an excellent option if you're a fan of ultra-light gaming mice since it's very lightweight. It also has smoother-gliding mouse feet, a more flexible cable, and you can adjust the CPI precisely in increments of 100. On the other hand, the BenQ is a good choice if you like simple mice with no RGB or software and you prefer the ambidextrous shape over the Glorious's right-handed design.

Ducky Feather

The Glorious Model D and the Ducky Feather are excellent ultra-light gaming mice with different shapes.
