Glorious Model D Wireless: The big Model D learns to spark

As with the Model O (test), Glorious PC Gaming Race with the Model D (test) follows the wireless version with a wireless version. Once again, as before with the Model O Wireless (test), there will only be matte models; the Model D- (test) as a smaller version is also left out. The mouse will be available in November.

Known components with few changes

Almost all details of the Model D Wireless, which had been promised months ago and has been expected since then, were more or less known in view of the large Glorious mouse family. Unsurprisingly, the input device consists of the chassis of a large Model D and the technology of a Model O Wireless, but there are a few changes. On the one hand, in relation to the wired version, Glorious does without holes in places, for example in the now completely closed primary key covers. Nevertheless, the mouse weighs just 69 grams with the same specified battery life of 71 hours – just as much as the classic Model D and even slightly less than the Model O Wireless. The reason is a further revised internal structure; the stability should not suffer as a result.

A second change can be found with the primary buttons. While all previous Glorious mice had Omron buttons, the manufacturer does not refer to the Model D Wireless as “Glorious Switches” with a – as usual implausible – specified lifetime of 80 million clicks. In the meantime, Glorious does not go into the technology of the microswitches manufactured by Kailh, so that they are presumably quite ordinary mechanical buttons.

    Apart from this, the Model D Wireless takes over well-known hardware: A PMW-3370 from PixArt, marketed as a BAMF sensor, acts as the sensor, the mouse has mouse feet made of pure PTFE including an additional set and the 2 meter long, flexible nylon wrapped cable is connected via USB -C connected to the mouse and via USB-A to the computer. The opulent RGB lighting and the software functionality of older Glorious mice are also taken over.

    Market launch in November

    The Model D Wireless can currently only be pre-ordered, either directly via the manufacturer’s website or from Caseking, where shipping is on November 16, 2021. The recommended retail price of around 95 euros is called up. The Model O Wireless costs around 90 euros according to the RRP, the wired matte Model D around 60 euros.
