Raw Performance

The GLORIOUS Model O PRO is a lightweight wireless gaming mouse produced with the GLORIOUS Forge program. It means to buy this mouse from GLORIOUS, you were required to pre-order it before production began, and it was produced in limited numbers. The pre-order phase is now over, so if you're interested in buying this mouse, you'll need to buy it from a third-party reseller. This mouse shares the same shape and dimensions as the GLORIOUS Model O Wireless, but it's lighter, lacks RGB lighting, and has a solid plastic body instead of a body with honeycomb-shaped cutouts. It also has a slightly longer advertised battery life compared to the GLORIOUS Model O Wireless. However, the sensor model and switches remain unchanged.

Our Verdict

6.5 Work

The GLORIOUS Model O PRO is decent for office and multimedia work, but it isn't designed specifically for this usage. It feels fairly well-built, has a comfortable, symmetrical shape, and connects wirelessly. Unfortunately, it doesn't support Bluetooth, and the scroll wheel lacks L/R tilt inputs and doesn't unlock for free-scrolling.

Pros
  • Extremely lightweight.
  • Excellent click latency and sensor performance.
  • Comfortable symmetrical shape.
Cons
  • Isn't suitable for small hands.
  • No Bluetooth support.
  • Minor build quality issues.
8.8 Video Games (FPS)

The GLORIOUS Model O PRO is an excellent FPS gaming mouse. It's extremely lightweight and has a comfortable symmetrical shape suitable for medium and larger-sized hands. Performance-wise, it has excellent click latency and an accurate, consistent sensor, providing a responsive in-game experience. Unfortunately, there's some flexibility in the plastic body, and the left and right-click buttons rattle slightly if you shake the mouse.

Pros
  • Extremely lightweight.
  • Excellent click latency and sensor performance.
  • Comfortable symmetrical shape.
Cons
  • Isn't suitable for small hands.
  • Minor build quality issues.
7.7 Video Games (MMO)

The GLORIOUS Model O PRO is good for MMO gaming, but it doesn't have nearly as many buttons as dedicated MMO gaming mice. That said, you can reprogram all buttons using the customization software. It also has excellent sensor performance and click latency, good build quality, and a comfortable shape suitable for medium and larger-sized hands.

Pros
  • Extremely lightweight.
  • Excellent click latency and sensor performance.
  • Comfortable symmetrical shape.
Cons
  • Isn't suitable for small hands.
  • Minor build quality issues.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The GLORIOUS Model O PRO is available in Red Fox, Blue Lynx, and Golden Panda colorways, and there are no other variants. We bought and tested the Red Fox color variant. You can see the label of our unit here.

Compared To Other Mice

The GLORIOUS Model O PRO is a lightweight, wireless gaming mouse. This mouse marks a departure for GLORIOUS as it's their first mouse release that doesn't feature honeycomb-shaped cutouts in the body or RGB lighting. It has the same shape and shares many of the key internal components as the GLORIOUS Model O Wireless; however, it's lighter, it has slightly longer battery life, and its solid plastic body has a textured surface. This mouse is also noteworthy for using a group buy model, meaning you needed to pre-order this mouse, and it was only produced in limited numbers. This group buy phase is over, so if you're interested in purchasing this mouse, you'll need to do so through third-party resellers.

Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT

The Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT and the GLORIOUS Model O PRO are lightweight wireless gaming mice with symmetrical shapes. The GLORIOUS is marginally lighter, but the Logitech feels much sturdier and has better sensor and click latency performance. The Logitech's shape is also more suitable for a wider range of hand sizes.

GLORIOUS Model O 2 Wireless

The GLORIOUS Model O 2 Wireless and the GLORIOUS Model O PRO are gaming mice in the same lineup. The Model O 2 Wireless is newer and has a significantly longer advertised battery life. It has small cutouts in its body on the palm rest and underside of the mouse. On the other hand, the Model O Pro is significantly lighter and has a solid plastic body without cutouts. It also delivers much better gaming performance.

GLORIOUS Model O Wireless

The GLORIOUS Model O PRO and the GLORIOUS Model O Wireless are both lightweight, wireless gaming mice that share the same shape and deliver very similar gaming performance. The PRO has a solid plastic shell and is lighter. It also has a somewhat longer advertised battery life. On the other hand, the Wireless has a body with honeycomb cutouts, and it feels better built overall.

GLORIOUS Series One PRO

The GLORIOUS Model O PRO and the GLORIOUS Series One PRO are two lightweight, wireless gaming mice released as part of the GLORIOUS Forge program. This means that neither mouse is available on GLORIOUS' website, as you had to pre-order the mice before manufacturing. Now, they are only available to purchase through third-party sellers. The two mice perform fairly similarly, but the Series One PRO is smaller in hand and has a slightly taller hump on the back. 

Razer Viper V2 Pro

The Razer Viper V2 Pro and the GLORIOUS Model O PRO are lightweight wireless gaming mice. The GLORIOUS is marginally lighter, but the Razer feels better built and has better gaming performance. The Razer is also somewhat more accommodating to a wider range of hand sizes and grip types.

GLORIOUS Model O

The GLORIOUS Model O PRO and the GLORIOUS Model O have the same size and shape and perform very similarly. The PRO connects wirelessly and is significantly lighter. It also has a solid plastic shell. On the other hand, the Model O is a wired model and feels sturdier overall. It also has honeycomb-shaped cutouts in its body and features RGB lighting, which the PRO lacks.

This mouse has a straightforward look with a solid plastic shell made of coral-colored plastic on top and black plastic on the side and bottom of the mouse. The plastic has a slightly textured finish, which feels nice and adds grip. In terms of visible branding, there's GLORIOUS logo on the left side towards the back of the mouse and a GLORIOUS Forge logo on the right side towards the front.

Build Quality

The GLORIOUS Model O PRO has good build quality, though it doesn't feel as sturdy as the GLORIOUS Model O Wireless. It doesn't feel flimsy, but there's some creaking and flexibility if you apply pressure to the plastic body. The plastic also feels relatively thin, and the left- and right-click buttons rattle when you shake the mouse. However, this isn't noticeable during regular use.

The GLORIOUS Model O PRO has a solid plastic body with a slightly textured finish that's comfortable and lends added grip. This mouse shares the same dimensions as the GLORIOUS Model O Wireless. The shape is symmetrical, but the side buttons are only on the left side, so it's best suited for right-handed use. If you're looking for a slightly smaller mouse, check out the GLORIOUS Series One PRO.
