The Glorious Model O is an excellent ultra-light gaming mouse. It's a wired-only mouse that'll please fans of lightweight gaming, as it weighs only 67 grams (not counting the cable), and can be customized between 400-12000 DPI. Its well-built, ambidextrous design can be used with any grip type, though those with small hands may find it a bit large and may want to consider the Glorious Model O Minus, which should perform similarly, but is smaller. This mouse has six buttons, all of which are programmable through its great companion software, where you can also customize its RGB settings. It's a great mouse for gamers, but due to its large, wired design, it may not be ideal for travelling.
The Glorious Model O is a good mouse for mixed usage. Though it's designed for gaming, its fairly straight-forward design makes it decent for office use as well. It has an ambidextrous shape that makes it suitable for most people, though those with small hands may want to look at the Glorious Model O Minus, which is smaller but should perform the same.See our Mixed Usage recommendations
The Glorious Model O is good for office use. It has great ergonomics and should be comfortable enough for all-day use for most people. All six buttons are programmable, which can be useful for daily use to help jump through your desktop quicker. However, it's wired only, which may be an issue if you have a very cluttered desk with things the cord can get caught on. Those with small hands may want to check out the 'Minus' version, however, as this mouse may be slightly too large.
The Glorious Model O isn't designed for travel. It's a wired gaming mouse that will work well for at-home gaming setups, but may be slightly bulky and awkward to use on-the-go. If you're looking for a more portable option, you may want to check out the 'Minus' version.
The Glorious Model O is an excellent mouse for FPS games. It has great performance with low click latency, and great DPI settings and polling rate. It also feels well-built and has great ergonomics which should be comfortable enough for marathon gaming sessions. Those with small hands may want to check out the 'Minus' version, however, as this mouse may be slightly too large.See our Video Games (FPS) recommendations
The Glorious Model O should be very good for MMO games. It performs well and should be comfortable enough for long gaming sessions. Unfortunately, it only has two extra side buttons, so hardcore MMO fans may be better off looking at something more dedicated to those types of games. It's also worth noting that this mouse is a little large, and those with smaller hands may want to consider the Glorious Model O Minus.
The Glorious Model O is excellent for ultra-light gaming. While it's very lightweight, which should please fans of light mice, unfortunately it can't be customized to lower the weight. Its very good click latency and polling rate make it a good choice for any type of game as well. While it has good ergonomics and can be used either right or left-handed as well as in any grip type, it's worth noting that this mouse is on the larger side and people with small hands may want to consider the 'Minus' version, which should perform the same but is smaller.
The Glorious Model O has a simple style with customizable RGB lighting along each side, on the scroll wheel, and inside the mouse itself, which shines through its honeycomb pattern holes. There's a logo on the side of the mouse, and the rest is rather plain. The mouse is available in four colors: glossy white, glossy black, matte black, and matte white.
This is a very lightweight mouse. While it has no customization options to make it lighter, it's one of the lightest mice we've tested.
Like most wired gaming mice, this mouse isn't the most portable option. It may not fit in most laptop cases, though this likely won't be an issue for people looking for a gaming mouse for their desk setup. Those looking for a more portable mouse may want to consider the smaller 'Minus' version.
This is a well-built mouse. While it's all made out of plastic, it has a solid build quality with no gaps or squeaking parts. It's worth noting that the honeycomb-patterned holes will likely let dust into where the exposed circuit board is, though we aren't sure if this will affect long-term durability.
The ergonomics are excellent. It's an ambidextrous mouse, though the buttons are on the left-hand side. While it can be used with any hand grip, those with small hands likely won't find any fit that's comfortable for them. Glorious makes a separate model, the Model O Minus, that's designed for people with smaller hands.
Everyone except people with smaller hands should be able to use this mouse with a palm grip. Those with smaller hands should check out the Glorious Model O Minus.

The Glorious Model O has a lightweight and flexible cable. Since we tested this mouse, the included cable has been updated, and is likely a bit better.
The Glorious Model O's click latency is great and should feel responsive to most people.
Note: The latency setting is customizable within the software and we tested at the lowest possible option (4ms), the default setting for this mouse is 10ms, which resulted in a click latency test result of 18ms. The 4ms setting may cause more frequent double-clicking, so the adjustment may be useful if the double click gets worse over the life span of the mouse.
The performance of this mouse is outstanding. It has a wide DPI range, customizable by increments of 100, which should allow most people to find a suitable DPI for them. The lifting distance of this mouse can also be set in the software up to just under 2.4 mm. The mouse is advertised as having a lift off distance of under 0.7mm, though our current method of testing only allows us to test in increments of 1.2mm, so we weren't able to test this. The high polling rate is very good as well and will result in a smooth and fluid cursor movement.
While this mouse only has two extra side buttons, it has six programmable buttons, including the scroll wheel, the small DPI switching button, and the L/R click button. This may not be enough buttons for MMOs, but it'll likely be enough for most gamers. You can also set up multiple profiles, but they can only be switched through the software.
This mouse has a fairly standard incremented mouse wheel with no horizontal tilt. The wheel also works as a button, which can be customized.
The Glorious Model O software is great and offers a lot of customizable options, including full RGB adjustments. The mouse also has onboard memory, so you can save your settings to the mouse and use it on multiple PCs without losing them. Unfortunately, the software isn't compatible with macOS.
While this mouse is fully compatible with Windows, it's only partially compatible with macOS. The software can't be installed on macOS, meaning you can't program the two side buttons to do anything, though the L/R click, scroll wheel, and DPI button still work. It will also maintain any RGB settings that you saved to the on-board memory from a PC.
The Glorious Model O is one of the best ultra-light gaming mice we've reviewed. It's noticeably lighter than most gaming mice but isn't quite the lightest. On the upside, it has a dedicated software and feels well-built, which can be an issue sometimes with this kind of mouse. It also has one of the best cables we've tested. It's also the only mouse that has a model variant that's supposedly identical but simply smaller, which is great for people with small hands. See our recommendations for the best mouse, the best wired mouse, and the best gaming mouse.
The Razer DeathAdder Elite and the Glorious Model O are both great wired gaming mice. The Glorious Model O is quite a bit lighter and has a much better cable than the Razer. However, the mouse is a bit bigger and may not be well-suited for people with smaller hands. Both mice have low latency and a customizable CPI, though the Razer has a wider range of CPI options, and can be set with increments of 1, which is great.
The Cooler Master MM710 is similar to the Glorious Model O. They're both ultra-light gaming mice with a honeycomb pattern, though the MM710 is slightly lighter. The performance of both mice is similar, though the MM710 can be customized to have a higher CPI. The Model O feels better-built. The Glorious Model O is a larger mouse and is better suited for those with larger hands, while the MM710 will be better for people with small or medium-sized hands.
The Glorious Model O and the SteelSeries Rival 600 are both great wired gaming mice. While the Glorious Model O is a bit lighter, they're both similar size and should be comfortable in all grip types for everyone except those with small hands. The cable on the Glorious Model O feels less rigid and stiff, but the SteelSeries has more programmable buttons. The latency is also lower on the Model O, though they both should feel quite responsive.
The Glorious Model O is a better ultra-light gaming mouse than the Logitech G305, due to its honeycomb design that makes it very lightweight. It also feels slightly better built and has better and more comfortable ergonomics. However, the Logitech is better for people with smaller hands, as they'll unlikely be able to comfortably use the Glorious Model O. The Logitech is also a wireless mouse but has almost the same latency as the Glorious, which is great.
The Glorious Model O and the Razer Viper Ultimate are both great ultra-light gaming mice. The Model O is a bit lighter thanks to its honeycomb design, but the Viper Ultimate is impressively lightweight considering it's a wireless mouse. If you have small hands, you may find the Model O a little bit too large, while the Viper Ultimate may be more comfortable. Both have impressively low latency, and a wide adjustable CPI range.
