Key note you're getting the first gen at double the prices as glorious o's website. They're currently selling for $50. You get the thicker cable with all the kinks in the cable out of the box. If you've seen reviews on this mouse you'll know what im talking about by comparison. They did a pretty bad job with the cable on first release. Well worth the money though even at $100. Fast accurate and precise. I'm moving over from a Zowie za13. Its extremely easy to place your aim in games as well as programs like Adobe photoshop. The software is very user friendly and easy to set up. Only issues I've had are straightening out the cable, and it likes tho turn on after the pc is turned off.

I’ve seen a lot of people saying that this mouse breaks, so untrue I don’t understand if people are throwing their mouse on the ceiling or wall, this mouse is lightweight, great for gaming, it didn’t take long to get used to it switching from a heavy mouse! Your hand glides across the desk with no effort, great for competitive gamers

Amazon pricing lately has been far more than the retailer's (Glorious PC Gaming Race) website.

The Basics:

The Glorious Model O (GMO for short, but no affiliation with Monsanto) is a 67g, 3360 sensor, 20M omron mouse. There are software AND driverless controls for the mouse. Paracorded. RGB. Premium mouse feet with exceptionally low friction. Textured plastic all over. Medium to large ambi shape with 2x thumb buttons on the left side, 6 buttons overall. Lots of understandable hype. $50. Matte black was used for review. Time in use prior to compiling review notes was 8 days.

The Good:

- Packaging is indeed classy. First impressions matter and Glorious does a nice job with a quality presentation. And who doesn’t like a sticker or two?

- Build quality it excellent and the mouse does not feel cheap despite the low weight. There are no rattles when shaken. While the plastic sides will bow inward slightly, that requires an unrealistically high amount of force to be a legitimate gripe in my opinion. If you are clutching your mouse harder than you would the last bag of Cheetos on planet earth, something is wrong.

- Software is easy to install, just be sure to install the firmware first. Software has a basic look but is very easy to navigate and carries a full-fledged set of features on par with Logitech for a fraction of the hard drive space.

- There are controls on the mouse so there is no need for software. Using the software is easier and gives more options, but I really love this feature and hope to see this “best of both worlds” approach on more mice.

- Weight is low, 67g without feeling cheap. Sides have no holes, holes on top feel more like texture than holes. I was expecting a mouse that felt more like a wiffleball, but it feels pretty much like a normal mouse.

- Feet are the smoothest I have encountered (I go through too many mice to ever bother with hyperglides). Combined with the low weight, the mouse is super controllable and effortless to move around.

- Balance is perfect. Effectively center of mass in all directions. Beautiful.

- Sensor position is good, just forward a longitudinal center, nothing stupid here like ¾ toward the back of the mouse like some mice. Also, X and Y sensitivity can be set separately in increments of 100. Given that the butt of this this is long enough to hit my palm, I may experiment with a higher Y setting in the future.

- LOD is very low, but adjustable up to 2mm.

- Tracking is standard 3360, which is to say excellent. No issues.

- Primary clicks are excellent. Light actuation, no pre/post vtravel and click feel is consistent across all buttons on the mouse. While I still prefer the feel of 50M omrons in general, these are some of the best 20M’s that I’ve tried.

- Scroll wheel may be my favorite of any mouse. Scroll steps are soft yet tactile, much like the Roccat Kone Pure as mentioned in Rocket Jump Ninjas youtube review. Can confirm that the scroll is very good. Middle click is actually easier than my RKP, so I’d say I actually prefer this scroll wheel over the Roccat.

- Safe ambi shape. Excellent for med palm, excellent for large fingertip, good for large claw. Only saying “good” for large palm since the mouse sits relatively low. Poor for small fingertip and medium or smaller claw. Medium fingertip is passable. Even though the relatively large size may make it unsuitable for smaller hands in some grip styles, the shape itself is excellent.

- Surface texture is a velvety soft finish that EXACTLY matches my GoFreetech TKL keyboard. Aside: I was a Logitech fan, but the 1.5mm travel short-throw browns (hard to find) and the nice aluminum frame sold me on the no-name keyboard and kept me sold. I have been trying to find a mouse with a similar surface finish that felt the same to satisfy my OCD. The closest I’d come to this point was the Corsair Harpoon, but the GMO is a dead-on match and the standard colors match. Better yet, the RGB hues match exactly. OCD satisfied.

- RGB colors are very smooth and beautiful. The fact there is some discrete color bleedover visible through the top holes is not unattractive and completely forgivable given the weight.

- DPI button is low profile and unlikely to have accidental activations, but it is also forward enough to still be somewhat useful in game.

The Middling:

- Surface finish can be a little slick with perfectly dry hands. However, the very low weight of the mouse means this is effectively a non-issue.

- Lacks an extra button that would make it more ideal for more complex (non-fps) games and daily driving. Personally I like having a sniper button to act as ping/build/mic in more complex games, but standard FPS players won’t be at a loss. Hardly a real negative.

- Omron switches are rated at 20M. Does this register as a practical matter in any real way? No. I can't say for certain that I’ve put 20 million clicks on all the mice in my life put together. My most used mouse (Logitech G303) still has fewer than 1 million clicks on it and I used that for a year straight. So no, it doesn’t really matter from a practical durability standpoint. However it does give an easily-measured shortfall relative to other mice. Primary clicks are also slightly louder and stiffer than the 50M variety typically is.

- Cable is incredibly light and flexible, however, as others have noted, it looks like an empty sock. The paracord on the Eluktronics Luminosa is better in the looks department while also having equivalent flexibility.

- The “grooviest” part of the finger grooves are toward the outside of the primary buttons, away from the scroll. Smaller hands or hands not using a palm grip will feel the need to “splay” or miss out on the groove. Minor detail.

- Thumb buttons have a near-perfect feel and are well placed for larger hands and palm grips. Fingertip players who grip the mouse toward the rear or have smaller hands may have to adjust grip to reach the forward button and both are slim. I did not have any issues with the thumb buttons, but space is limited. Individuals with fatter thumbs may end up dragging the bottom of their thumb in order to avoid resting the top of their thumb on the thumb buttons.

- You get the Odin face/logo on the left side of the mouse. Not an issue for me, but some will dislike the “face” always being there. There is also a decent chance the face will show wear over time.

The Bad:

- Primary clicks have some lateral wobble. Not something that will be noticed during use, but a minor mark against build quality. It is a legitimate con, but methinks people are blowing this out of proportion. It’s a $50 mouse, not a $300,000 Lamborghini prototype.

- Likely to spoil your aim for a time just based on weight alone. I went from the G502 to the GMO for maximum effect and even though the handling of the mouse was great from the start, my accuracy was not.

- Size (for some). Being on the large side, the GMO will not readily suit hands on the smaller end of the spectrum. Personally, as a fingertip player I could say goodbye to the rearmost 10-15 mm of the mouse and never miss it. The large size means that it simply won’t be an ideal fit for some. Even after I adapted to the weight of the mouse, accuracy was not on par with the G303 in-game or in testing, and that likely has to do with a fairly wide grip width the way I hold the mouse. (Limited fine-tuning of aim using fingers 4 and 5)

- Likely to spoil you for other mice if it’s the right size for you. In a way, this mouse makes me sad. It demonstrates just how ignorant so many companies have not been getting it right and not for the right price. This is the king of the Hill for now. The suspense is over. The wait is real until others release comparable products.

The Conclusion:

There are a lot of things that went very right with the GMO.

(All that is left to do now is wait and see whether Finalmouse files for chapter 7, 11 or 13 bankruptcy?)

A lot of people are talking about Finalmouse getting owned with this mouse. That is understandable. But there is another mouse that definitely takes a sales hit in my mind. That mouse is the other big contender for “hardcore endgame mouse” in my mind, the Logitech G Pro Wireless. It is wireless, but it costs 2-3 times as much for something that weighs over 10 grams more and feels about as wireless as the GMO while having fewer RGB options. On the basis of cost to performance ratio, it is effectively impossible to make a case that the GPW is significantly better than the GMO.

The GMO has some outstanding qualities with an outstanding feature set that is implemented nearly flawlessly. The GMO is probably the best bang for the buck in hardcore FPS mice right now. It is definitely the lightest that you can buy with RGB and software and with on-mouse controls. You will not be losing common features or getting ripped off with a purchase of this mouse, and that is something everyone can appreciate (except for competitors). To be clear, this is not a sponsored review.

If I could make this a 70 gram mouse with a sniper button, add 50M Omrons, and shrink the entire affair by 10%, it could be literal perfection for me. As it is, I have a new favorite scroll wheel and this is objectively one of the best mice I’ve ever seen from multiple perspectives.

If I had to choose between this mouse and the G Pro Wireless, I would probably choose the GPW on the basis of the smaller size and wireless convenience. That said, I think the Model O is the better product in multiple ways. Thus, even though the Nit-Noid score usually reflects how much I like using the mouse, the GMO gets the upper hand in overall score on the basis of excellent design from a company that not only listened, but made the mouse right and didn’t charge what they likely could have for their product out of the gate.

Bang for $50 Bucks: A

Nit-Noid Rating: 9.5

Best mouse I have ever used, hands down. You pay more to buy from 3rd party rather than the manufactures website. But they are always sold out!

I got this for my bf because he had the brick mouse (Logitech G502). His main game is Fortnite and he moved super slow because of his old mouse. The Model O has changed his speed tremendously! He loves it and will never go back to a heavy mouse #lightweightmousegang

Best mouse I have tried and I am not on any type of budget

Good price better then website and super light awesome mouse love this product totally

As described, works good.
