The Glorious Model O is an excellent ultra-light gaming mouse that feels very well-built and solid, with a honeycomb-pattern design that places it among the lightest mice we’ve tested. This wired-only model comes with an outstanding cable that’s lightweight and flexible. It has a total of six buttons, including two on the side, and all of them are easily programmable within the companion software. The sensor's performance is also amazing, with a wide CPI range that's pretty consistent whether you move the cursor slowly or quickly, and a low click latency. It has a very comfortable ambidextrous design that’s suitable for any grip style. However, its large body isn’t well-suited for people with smaller hands who may feel more comfortable using the Glorious Model O-, a smaller version that performs similarly.

Our Verdict

7.0 Office/Multimedia

The Glorious Model O is only decent for office use. It feels very well-built and should be comfortable enough for all-day use for most people. However, it's wired only, so it may be problematic if you have a small or cluttered desk with things the cable can get caught on. On the plus side, all six buttons are programmable, which can be useful to help with your workflow and jumping through your desktop quicker. If you have smaller hands, you may want to check out the Glorious Model O instead, as this mouse may be slightly too large.

Pros
  • Feels very well-built and solid.
  • Comfortable, ambidextrous design.
Cons
  • Isn't suitable for small hands with any grip type.
  • Can’t be used wirelessly.
8.5 Video Games (FPS)

The Glorious Model O is an excellent mouse for FPS games. It has great performance with low click latency, great DPI settings, and an adjustable polling rate. It also feels well-built and should be comfortable enough for marathon gaming sessions. Those with small hands may want to check out the Glorious Model O- instead, as this one may be slightly too large.

Pros
  • Low click latency.
  • Feels very well-built and solid.
  • One of the lightest mice we’ve tested.
Cons
  • Isn't suitable for small hands with any grip type.
7.3 Video Games (MMO)

The Glorious Model O is decent 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, so those with smaller hands may want to consider the Glorious Model O- instead.

Pros
  • Feels very well-built and solid.
  • Comfortable, ambidextrous design.
  • Great software with plenty of customization options.
Cons
  • Isn't suitable for small hands with any grip type.
  • Not nearly as many buttons as a dedicated MMO mouse.
8.7 Ultra-Light Gaming

The Glorious Model O is excellent for ultra-light gaming. It's among the lightest mice we've tested, and has amazing performance, with low click latency and a high polling rate. While it's very comfortable with an ambidextrous design that's suitable for 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 Glorious Model O- instead.

Pros
  • Low click latency.
  • Feels very well-built and solid.
  • One of the lightest mice we’ve tested.
  • Lightweight and flexible cable.
Cons
  • Isn't suitable for small hands with any grip type.
5.0 Travel

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 it 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 Glorious Model O-.

Pros
  • Feels very well-built and solid.
  • Comfortable, ambidextrous design.
Cons
  • Isn't suitable for small hands with any grip type.
  • Can’t be used wirelessly.
  • May be too bulky for some laptop cases.

Lighting Color RGB

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, but the rest is rather plain. It's available in four colors: glossy white, glossy black, matte white, and matte black. If you're interested in a similarly lightweight gaming mouse with heart and diamond-shaped cutouts instead of the honeycomb holes on the Glorious, check out the Vancer BT.L Gretxa.

Like most wired gaming mice, this isn't the most portable option as it may not fit into most laptop cases. However, this likely won't be an issue for people looking for a gaming mouse for their desk setup. Those looking for a more portable option may want to consider the smaller Glorious Model O-.

Build Quality

This mouse feels very well-built and solid, and while it's all made of plastic, it doesn't have any gaps or squeaking parts. However, the scroll wheel may be problematic at times as the rubber moves but not the wheel itself, causing delays when scrolling. It's also worth noting that the honeycomb-patterned holes will likely let dust into the exposed circuit board, though we aren't sure if this will affect long-term durability. If you're not a fan of the open shell and would prefer something with even better build quality, check out the Endgame Gear XM1.

This mouse feels very comfortable. It has an ambidextrous design, though the buttons are only on the left side, and it can be used with any grip style for most hand sizes. However, it's not well-suited for those with smaller hands, but Glorious makes a separate smaller model, the Glorious Model O-, that performs quite similarly. There's also the BenQ Zowie S2 that's available in two different sizes, and if you prefer mice with a right-slanted design, check out the near-identical Glorious Model D.

The Glorious Model O's sensor has a wide CPI range, but you can only adjust the sensitivity in increments of 100, which isn’t that precise. However, the set CPI is very consistent, whether you move the cursor slowly or quickly, and you can adjust the polling rate from 100Hz to 1000Hz. The lift-off distance is advertised as being less than 1.2 mm, but due to our testing methods, we can't confirm that. You can also change it to just under 2.4 mm if that’s what you prefer. If you want a similar mouse with a wider CPI range, check out the HyperX Pulsefire Haste.

While this mouse only has two extra side buttons, it has six total programmable buttons, including the scroll wheel, the small DPI switching button, and the L/R click button. This may not be enough for MMOs, but it'll likely be adequate for most gamers. You can also set up multiple profiles, but they can only be switched through the software. Although this an ambidextrous mouse, it doesn't have buttons on either side in case you want to use it left-handed like the Ducky Feather.

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 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 lifespan of the mouse.

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 CPI button still work. It will also maintain any RGB settings that you saved to the on-board memory from a PC.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

While we tested the glossy white version, the Glorious Model O is also available in glossy black, matte white, and matte black. There’s also a smaller version, the Glorious Model O-, and a wireless version, the Glorious Model O Wireless.

Compared To Other Mice

The Glorious Model O is one of the best ultra-light gaming mice we've tested. It's noticeably lighter than most gaming mice, though it isn't the lightest one. It also feels very well-built, which can be an issue sometimes with this kind of mouse, and it has one of the best cables we've tested. It's the only mouse that has a variant that's identical but simply smaller, which is great for people with smaller hands. For more options, see our recommendations for the best mouse, the best wired mouse, and the best gaming mouse.

Glorious Model D

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 Viper Mini

The Razer Viper Mini and the Glorious Model O are two excellent gaming mice. The Razer is lighter than the Glorious. The Razer is also smaller than the Glorious. The cable on the Glorious feels slightly lighter.

Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT

The Glorious Model O and the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT are both amazing ultra-light gaming mice. The Logitech has a simple design, and it’s slightly smaller and lighter, making it a great fit for almost all hand sizes using any grip type. It’s also more versatile as it can be used wired or wirelessly. On the other hand, the Glorious features a honeycomb pattern and RGB lighting, giving it a more gamer-centric look.

Razer Viper

The Razer Viper performs similarly to the Glorious Model O and is almost just as light, even though it doesn't have a honeycomb pattern to reduce its weight. The Viper has two side buttons on each side, and its body is slightly smaller than the Glorious. However, if you have small hands, the Glorious is also available in a smaller size, called the Glorious Model O-. Also, the Glorious cable is noticeably lighter and more flexible than the Razer.

Razer DeathAdder V2

The Razer DeathAdder V2 is a slightly better gaming mouse than the Glorious Model O if you're a palm or claw grip user. Its shape is more rounded, but the lightest option between the two is the Glorious. The Glorious is also available in an even smaller design, which is great if you have small hands. The Glorious has an ambidextrous body, while the Razer has a right slant and is noticeably wider.

Glorious Model O-

The Glorious Model O- is slightly better for ultra-light gaming than the Glorious Model O, but they're very similar. The Model O- is lighter, and a better choice for those with smaller hands, but the Model O is more comfortable overall because it's bigger.

HyperX Pulsefire Haste

The Glorious Model O and the HyperX Pulsefire Haste perform quite similarly. Both options are wired-only and feature a honeycomb design, but the HyperX is shorter and a bit lighter. It also has a wider CPI range and slightly better click latency, though the difference shouldn’t be noticeable. On the other hand, the Glorious' cable is a little more flexible, and its set CPI is slightly more consistent. It also allows you to save more than one profile to its onboard memory.

SteelSeries Aerox 3

The SteelSeries Aerox 3 and the Glorious Model O are very similar wired mice. They both have a lightweight, ambidextrous design with a right-handed button layout. The Glorious has a better build quality, higher quality cable and feet, and its sensor has a wider sensitivity range and a lower lift-off distance. However, the SteelSeries is lighter, and it has more programmable inputs and software support for macOS. The Glorious' slightly longer body makes it more suitable for large hands using a palm grip, but it also makes it less ideal for small hands using a claw or fingertip grip.

Glorious Model O Wireless

The Glorious Model O Wireless is slightly better overall than the Glorious Model O, but they're very similar and have the same shape, with the main difference being that the Model O is wired-only while the Wireless can be used wirelessly or wired. On top of that, the Wireless has a wider CPI range which you can adjust by smaller increments, and it feels better-built. However, the wired Model O is marginally lighter, and the sensor is a bit more consistent whether the cursor is moved quickly or slowly.

Logitech G502 HERO

The Glorious Model O is a much lighter mouse than the Logitech G502 HERO. The Glorious has a much more flexible and lightweight cable, which should be better for gaming. The Logitech has a sniper button and a much larger design that's better suited for people with bigger hands. It also has an unlockable wheel and a nice comfortable thumb rest.

Razer DeathAdder Essential

The Glorious Model O and the Razer DeathAdder Essential are right-handed wired gaming mice. If you prefer ultra-light mice, the Glorious is a better choice. The honeycomb design makes it significantly lighter. It has a better quality cable, smoother-gliding mouse feet, and onboard memory. It has a wider maximum CPI, a lower latency, and a slightly more consistent sensor. Comparatively, the Razer has a lower minimum CPI and more programmable inputs thanks to its HyperShift feature, which gives you a second layer of customization.

Razer DeathAdder Elite

The Razer DeathAdder Elite and the Glorious Model O are both great wired gaming mice. The Glorious 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 wide range of CPI options and can be set with increments of 1, which is great.

Cooler Master MM711

The Glorious Model O and the Cooler Master MM711 are excellent ultra-light gaming mice. The Cooler Master is lighter, feels sturdier, and has a wider CPI range. On the other hand, the Glorious is longer, making it more comfortable for some hand sizes. It also has a somewhat lower click latency. Both mice are well-suited for all grip types, but the Cooler Master is best for smaller hands, while the Glorious is better-suited for larger hands.

Finalmouse Ultralight 2 - Cape Town

The Glorious Model O and the Finalmouse Ultralight 2 - Cape Town are excellent ultra-light gaming mice, but the Glorious has better performance overall. The Glorious has double the polling rate, double the maximum DPI, and a lower lift-off distance. However, it isn't suitable for small hands, though there's a smaller version available with nearly identical performance, the Glorious Model O-. On the other hand, the Finalmouse is substantially lighter and well-suited for small and medium hands using any grip type. However, it isn't suitable for larger hands regardless of grip type, and it lacks companion software for customization.

Razer Mamba Elite

The Razer Mamba Elite and the Glorious Model O are two very different gaming mice. The Razer is a great choice for FPS gaming. It has a right-handed design that's well-suited for most hand sizes and grip types. Performance-wise, its sensor has a wider CPI range that you can adjust more precisely, and the mouse has a lot more buttons and programmable inputs. On the other hand, the Glorious is a better choice for fans of ultra-light mice. It has a honeycomb-patterned body that makes it very lightweight, and its cable and feet are much better than the Razer.

Cooler Master MM710

The Cooler Master MM710 is similar to the Glorious Model O. They're both ultra-light gaming mice with a honeycomb pattern, though the Cooler Master is slightly lighter. Both mice perform similarly, but the Cooler Master can be customized to have a higher CPI. The Glorious feels better-built, but it's a larger mouse that's better suited for those with larger hands, while the Cooler Master will be better for people with small or medium-sized hands.

SteelSeries Rival 600

The Glorious Model O and the SteelSeries Rival 600 are both great wired gaming mice. While the Glorious is a bit lighter, they're both similar in size and should be comfortable in all grip types for everyone except those with small hands. The cable on the Glorious feels less rigid and stiff, but the SteelSeries has more programmable buttons. The latency is also lower on the Glorious, though they both should feel quite responsive.

Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED

The Glorious Model O is a better ultra-light gaming mouse than the Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED, as its honeycomb design makes it very lightweight. It also feels slightly better built and more comfortable. However, the Logitech is better for people with smaller hands, as the Glorious might not be suitable for them. The Logitech is also a wireless mouse but has almost the same click latency as the Glorious, which is great.

Endgame Gear XM1

The Endgame Gear XM1 and the Glorious Model O are two great ultralight gaming mice. The Endgame Gear is slightly heavier, but it feels better-made thanks to its solid shell body. Its cable also feels a bit better than the Glorious'. Its CPI range is also wider and can be customized more precisely. On the other hand, the Glorious' lift-off distance is shorter, and thanks to its software, you can reprogram all six buttons, which you can't do on the Endgame Gear. The Glorious also has RGB lighting, while the Endgame Gear has a more sleek and plain design.

XTRFY M42

The XTRFY M24 and the Glorious Model O are excellent wired ultra-light gaming mice with symmetrical shapes. The XTRFY is slightly lighter, has a higher CPI range, and features modular back panels. However, it has very few CPI preset options. The Glorious has companion software that allows for most customization options and more precise CPI adjustments.

ROCCAT Kain 100 AIMO

The Glorious Model O and the ROCCAT Kain 100 AIMO are both wired gaming mice, but the Glorious performs better overall. The Glorious is much lighter thanks to its honeycomb cutout design, and it has a more flexible cable and smoother-gliding mouse feet. Performance-wise, it has a higher maximum CPI, a lower lift-off distance, and a marginally lower click latency, although the difference won't be noticeable to most people. Comparatively, the ROCCAT has a lower minimum CPI and more programmable buttons thanks to its Easy-Shift[+] feature.

Logitech G Pro Wireless

The Logitech G Pro Wireless is a better mouse for most people, but the Glorious Model O is a better choice for those who want a lighter option. The Glorious is wired, while the Logitech is a wireless mouse. The Logitech has two side buttons on each side, and you can swap them out for them to sit flush with the mouse's body. It's also fully compatible with macOS.

Glorious Model D-

The Glorious Model O and the Glorious Model D- are very similar mice. The Model O is better for office use because it feels better-built. However, the Minus is better for ultra-light gaming because it's lighter and has lower click latency.

Razer Viper Ultimate

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 Razer is also impressively lightweight considering it's a wireless mouse. If you have small hands, you may find the Glorious a little bit too large, while the Razer may be more comfortable. Both have impressively low latency and a wide adjustable CPI range.

Endgame Gear XM1r

The Endgame Gear XM1r and Glorious Model O are both excellent, wired ultra-light gaming mice. The Glorious has a honeycomb body, RGB lighting, and you can program inputs and adjust sensor settings with the companion software. The Endgame Gear is slightly heavier but has a solid plastic body and more solid-feeling build quality. Unfortunately, the Endgame Gear has no companion software, so it only has four preset CPI settings and no programmable buttons.

BenQ ZOWIE S2

The Glorious Model O is slightly better than the BenQ ZOWIE S2; it's lighter and feels better-built. Most people should find the BenQ more comfortable, but it depends on your hand size and grip preference. The Glorious' lightweight and flexible cable is noticeably better than the BenQ's stiff non-braided cable. On the other hand, if you don't like RGB, the BenQ doesn't have any.

Corsair SABRE RGB PRO

The Glorious Model O and the Corsair SABRE RGB PRO are excellent wired gaming mice with comparable performance and shapes suitable for larger hands using any grip type. The Glorious is lighter, has better mouse feet, a more flexible cable, and an ambidextrous shape. Unfortunately, its companion software is only compatible with Windows. On the other hand, the Corsair has a right-handed shape, a significantly better click latency, an 8000Hz maximum polling rate, and a CPI with a wider range that's adjustable by increments of one using the companion software compatible with both Windows and macOS.

G-Wolves Hati HT-M Classic Edition

The Glorious Model O and the G-Wolves Hati Medium are similar ultra-light gaming mice. They weigh about the same and have the same sensor. The G-Wolves' body is a bit shorter, and the Glorious features RGB lighting.

Razer DeathAdder V2 Mini

The Razer DeathAdder V2 Mini and the Glorious Model O are both excellent gaming mice. The Razer has a lower click latency, and you can switch profiles directly from the mouse, unlike the Glorious. The Razer is also lighter than the Glorious, but the Glorious' CPI maximum is much higher, and its bigger size should be more comfortable for those with larger hands.

XTRFY M4 RGB

The Glorious Model O and the XTRFY M4 RGB are very similar mice. The Glorious is slightly better, as it's lighter, and it has software that allows you to remap buttons, adjust performance settings, and create custom profiles. However, the XTRFY has a better build quality and a wider CPI range.

SteelSeries Prime

The Glorious Model O is a better mouse for ultra-light gaming than the SteelSeries Prime. They're nearly the same weight, but the Glorious has a more flexible cable, mouse feet that glide more smoothly, and a significantly lower click latency. Comparatively, the SteelSeries feels sturdier and has a wider CPI range, a more precisely adjustable CPI, and companion software compatible with Windows and macOS, which the Glorious lacks. Both mice are well-suited for all grip types, but the Glorious isn't suitable for small hands.

ROCCAT Burst Pro

The ROCCAT Burst Pro performs slightly better than the Glorious Model O, though they're both excellent ultra-light gaming mice. The ROCCAT has a lower click latency and a wide CPI range that you can adjust more precisely, but its sensor is more inconsistent. It also has more programmable inputs, including a profile switching button. On the other hand, the Glorious Model O is slightly lighter and has a better cable. It also has a smaller variant, the Glorious Model O-, which is great for people with smaller hands.

G-Wolves Hati HT-S ACE Edition

The Glorious Model O and the G-Wolves Hati HT-S ACE Edition are both lightweight gaming mice, but the Glorious has better overall performance, while the G-Wolves is markedly lighter. The Glorious feels sturdier, it has a more flexible cable, and its mouse feet glide more smoothly. It also has significantly lower click latency. On the other hand, the G-Wolves is much lighter, it has a wider CPI range, and you can adjust the CPI more precisely. Both mice are suitable for all grip types, but the Glorious is better-suited for larger hands, while the G-Wolves is more accommodating for smaller hands.

Logitech G903 LIGHTSPEED

The Glorious Model O is an ultra-light gaming mouse that's half the weight of the Logitech G903 LIGHTSPEED. The Logitech may be more suitable for people with smaller hands, except those using a fingertip grip. Both mice have very low latency and a wide adjustable CPI range.

Corsair SABRE PRO

The Corsair SABRE PRO and the Glorious Model O are both excellent lightweight gaming mice. The Corsair has a lower click latency, a CPI with a wider range that you can adjust by increments of one, and an 8000Hz maximum polling rate. It also has companion software that's compatible with Windows and macOS. It has a right-handed design best suited for palm or claw grip, but those with smaller hands may not be able to reach all buttons in a claw or fingertip grip. On the other hand, the Glorious has a honeycomb body and is a bit lighter, has a more flexible cable, and better mouse feet. Its ambidextrous shape is suitable for all grip types but isn't well suited for smaller hands. That said, there's a smaller version, the Glorious Model O-.

Cooler Master MM720

The Cooler Master MM720 is better for most uses than the Glorious Model O. The Cooler Master is much lighter, has a much wider CPI range, more programmable inputs, and lower click latency. However, the Glorious has less CPI variation and feels better-built.

HyperX Pulsefire Surge

The Glorious Model O is an excellent ultra-light gaming mouse, whereas the HyperX Pulsefire Surge is a decent FPS gaming mouse. Both have an ambidextrous shape with two buttons on their left side, but the Glorious has a honeycomb body; this makes it significantly lighter and a better choice for fans of ultra-light gaming mice. Also, it has a better cable and smoother-gliding PTFE feet. On the other hand, the HyperX's body has a sturdy-feeling build, a wider CPI range, and a CPI you can adjust more precisely.

SteelSeries Aerox 3 Wireless

The SteelSeries Aerox 3 Wireless and the Glorious Model O are very similar mice, as they're both ultra-light mice with a honeycomb body and an ambidextrous shape. However, the SteelSeries is better overall, mainly due to its wireless connectivity. This means you don't have to deal with cable drag, and you can connect it with two devices simultaneously. It's just as light as the Glorious, and it has more programmable inputs because it lets you reprogram the wheel's up and down scroll. That said, the Glorious feels better built, and it has higher quality feet that provide a smoother glide. The Glorious also has a longer body, making it more suitable for large hands using a palm grip.

ROCCAT Kone Pro

The Glorious Model O and the ROCCAT Kone Pro are excellent ultra-light gaming mice. The Glorious has an ambidextrous shape, better mouse feet, and a more consistent sensor. Comparatively, the ROCCAT has a right-handed shape, a wider CPI range, and a more precisely adjustable CPI. Both mice are very well-suited for all grip types, but the Glorious isn't suitable for smaller hands.

XTRFY MZ1 – Zy’s Rail

The Glorious Model O and the XTRFY MZ1 – Zy’s Rail are excellent ultra-light gaming mice. The Glorious has a more consistent sensor, a much lower click latency, and companion software for customization. It's ideal for all grip types but best suited for smaller hands. On the other hand, the XTRFY feels sturdier and has a higher max CPI. Its shape is best-suited for a fingertip for all hand sizes or a palm grip for smaller hands.

BenQ ZOWIE S1
