Glorious Model D 2 Wireless Review – Ultralight Precision

    A comfortable and ergonomic design for competitive and casual play.

    Gaming mice continue to become lighter, more efficient, and customizable in 2024, and the Glorious Model D 2 Wireless mouse is no exception. In fact, Glorious‘ new gaming mouse might be the shining example for its competitors, as it offers an extremely lightweight design with comfort in mind. The ergonomic mouse feels weightless in the hand, making it a clear choice for competitive and casual gamers alike. 

    Out of the box, the Glorious Model D 2 Wireless feels premium and well-built with a clean finish that emphasizes grip and comfort. The mouse caters to both palm and claw grip styles, and the mouse’s weight at just 66 grams means that moving the mouse on its feet is ultra smooth. On top of this, the Glorious Model D 2 Wireless is power efficient, ensuring gamers will be using it during long play sessions for multiple days on a single charge.

    The Glorious Model D 2 Wireless Feature Suite

    After turning on the mouse and installing the Glorious Core 2.0 software, I began to configure the Model D 2 Wireless to fit my needs for gaming and browsing, including the six remappable buttons. Overall, the software is a necessity for the Model D 2 Wireless, thanks to the customizable profiles, firmware updates, and features/settings.

    The base configuration works quite nicely, but it’s worth noting that the default DPI options are low, so those will need to be adjusted out of the box. The DPI range is quite impressive, going up to 26,000 DPI across multiple stages, which is higher than the DPI offered by the Razer Deathadder V2 Pro and Logitech G703. DPI is selected by pressing the button near the scroll wheel. 

    Coupled with a 1000 Hz polling rate and Motion Sync tech, it’s clear the Glorious Model D 2 Wireless focuses on speed and responsiveness—elements required for competitive titles and first-person shooters. This is further emphasized by the mouse’s 650 IPS max speed and 50G of max acceleration, meaning that swift swipes will feel smooth and accurate at those higher DPI ranges. By default, the debounce time is set at 2 ms, which I did not feel the need to change since the mouse has a great profile from the get-go.

    Moreover, I leveraged the 2.4 GHz wireless receiver and extender dongle for most of the my play time with the Model D 2 Wireless, as it lets me fully utilize the accessible range on my mousepad without needing to organize the cord. Battery life is shortened to 110 hours on 2.4 GHz, whereas Bluetooth (5.2 LE) can run up to 210 hours. Personally, I prefer 2.4 GHz as it gives the most responsive and precise experience while gaming in titles like Halo Infinite.

    The Finer Details

    It’s worth noting that the Model D 2 Wireless clearly caters toward gaming with a dominant right hand, so left-handed gamers and those who prefer an ambidextrous mouse design may not be pleased. However, the design is a perfect fit for the contours of the right hand, and gamers who use palm grip will especially find it comfortable. The mouse’s finish is among one of the most comfortable I’ve felt.

    The Model D 2 Wireless’ low weight can be attributed to a superb honeycomb design on the palm rest and the mouse’s bottom. A tasteful amount of RGB (16.8 million colors to be exact) runs on both sides of the mouse, lighting up the interior of the frame as well. RGB can be controlled through Glorious Core, but I felt like the default RGB setting was just right. Once the battery is on a low charge, the RGB glows a dim red shade. 

    Switching between wired and wireless with the Model D 2 Wireless is almost seamless. The toggled DPI setting resets to default when switching between both modes, but users simply need to click the DPI button until the desired setting is active. 

    Glorious Model D 2 Wireless is a Leading Class Gaming Mouse

    The Glorious Model D 2 Wireless mouse offers class-leading performance and unmatched comfort, making it an excellent choice at its $99.99 MSRP. Its lightweight frame and ergonomic design ensures long play sessions are fatigue-free, which is a major positive for the Model D 2 Wireless. The comfort and precise control offered by the Model D 2 Wireless is key for PC gamers that want their mouse to be a true extension of their skills. 

    Moreover, the Glorious Model D 2 Wireless targets the needs of PC gamers for games in all sorts of genres, ranging from competitive FPS and MOBA titles to single-player, narrative driven games. The mouse doesn’t compromise itself as a jack of all trades, however. The Model D 2 Wireless excels in comfort, speed, and design for what could to be 2024’s best mouse.
