Glorious Model I in practice – the mouse is doing so well
Glorious Model I convinces all along the line: I was a bit skeptical at first about the weight of the Glorious Model I. If you take the gaming mouse in your hand, you realize how little 69 grams actually are. Ultra-light describes very well the feeling you have when you hold the mouse in your hand. The large front side button on the thumb also bothered me at first because I kept pressing it accidentally.
However, both doubts vanished into thin air within a very short time. I was able to easily replace the button on my thumb so that I didn’t keep bumping into it uncontrollably. And I got used to the low weight of the mouse so quickly that I no longer want to touch my old, much heavier mouse.
The Glorious Model I feels really good in the hand and thanks to G-Skates premium mouse feet it glides extremely smoothly over any mouse pad. Every movement of the gaming mouse is transferred very precisely to the mouse pointer – no matter how much DPI you have set. The device really feels like an extension of your arm when you use it.
The Glorious Model I is ideal for medium to large hands. I tested the gaming mouse in League of Legends, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Age of Empires 2 and Guild Wars 2. In each of these games, the Model I made a convincing impression. I was able to reach all of the buttons with my big hands, but it might not be enough for absolute hardcore MMO players. Nevertheless, the Glorious Model I is a good all-rounder with which you can make almost any game genre unsafe.
Glorious Model I – It’s so easy to adapt the gaming mouse to your needs
Nine programmable buttons: The Glorious Model I has a total of nine buttons: two mouse buttons, a mouse wheel, two buttons next to the mouse wheel and four buttons on the side for the thumb. You can reassign all nine buttons on the Model I with the appropriate software and adapt them to your gaming needs. But more on that in a moment.
It’s so easy to swap the keys: Because the feel of the gaming mouse in the hand is important when gaming, you can swap two buttons on the Glorious Model I and thus adapt the ergonomics better to your personal taste. It is the rearmost side button and the large side button at the front. These are magnetically attached and can be easily removed. A solid piece of paper, such as a business card, is sufficient for this. You can also use slightly longer fingernails or tweezers.
Slide the tool of your choice into the notch provided and pry the button out without resistance. Be careful that she doesn’t jump away from you. Now you can use one of the alternative buttons. There is a variant for each of the interchangeable buttons that disables the keypad. You can then simply no longer press the button.
