The Glorious Model D- is the smaller brother of the right-handed ergonomic Model D. As always, a low weight, PixArt's PMW3360 sensor, Omron switches for main buttons, rich RGB lighting, and extensive software customizability are on board, along with an improved physical construction.

Great in depth review. TY TPU :rockout:

I got a Model D incoming, arriving tomorrow in delivery. If it's too big but if I like the shape, I'll know the D- will work.

Noice.
I'm waiting for my G303 to die but Glorious Model D was at the top of my current shortlist for its eventual replacement.
I don't rest my palm on any mice so the smaller and lighter it is, the better, and I'm pleased with the 800 and 1600CPI tracking speeds too.

Considering that is said to equal the length of an erect Peni, do you really want to know if you are small? :roll:

Below 17 cm would be what I'd classify as small, 18+ cm is medium. It's somewhat difficult to say though since finger length, hand width, and the general bulkiness of the hand all play a role here.

I have a new D- in front of me and to be honest I was not that impressed with it out of the box compared to my Razer Mamba, which it replaced. It just does not feel as responsive at the same 1900 dpi that I work and play at. I went in to the settings and changes the debounce rate from default 10ms to 4ms. Perhaps this will make it feel snappier! I'll report back. The mouse shape is pretty good for my medium hand claw grip style and it is nice and light. Also it has by far the most flexible cable that I have ever seen on a mouse, so i guess its not all bad.

Will you be reviewing the model O wireless? because the BAMF sensor seems to be behaving quite odd for a lot of people, me included. And not a single reviewer is saying anything about it.

This is the sort of company we need more of.

"Hey, I have your <product name> review. I'm giving it 7/10 because <thing(s) I found to be negative aspect(s)>"

"No problem, thanks for the feedback. We can't fix everything because some things are set in stone at this point, but let us see if we can solve some of the issues you found."

Just to update, the mouse no longer works, the right mouse button is stuck! Not very impressed. Support have sent me a new mouse that appears to be working fine, however not sure if the reduction in mass for these lightweight mice results in a mouse that cant take everyday use!

Do you have any knowlage of how long will it take? Because I'd really like to know if the issues with the mouse can be fixed with a software update, or if it is the sensor it self that is in fault, before the return window closes for my mouse.

Don't expect anything to happen before 2021. Most issues should indeed be fixable through soft and firmware updates.

Does anyone with the Model D get a Windows Device connected chime on a Restart? I don't get them on a cold boot, only on a restart, and on the USB 3.0 port, not on USB 2.0.

Sens, you already have the model o wireless, can you tell if you have any issues with the sensor in your piece? Because I'm having quite bad ''dead zone'' tracking issues, and it seems that I'm not the only one, and not a single reviewer has mentioned the same issue.
