Hello everyone; I’m here to compare two of the most well-liked wireless mice currently available: the Logitech g pro x superlight and the Glorious model o wireless. I’ve already written standalone reviews on both of these mice, which you can read here if you’re interested in learning more.
People often compare them to one another, so that’s what we’re going to do here. We’ll examine them, discuss their differences and similarities, and even recommend or use one, but just a spoiler: both of these mice are excellent.

Glorious Model O Wireless vs Logitech G Pro X Superlight: Design
Okay, so the dimensions are the biggest difference between the two mice and might even be what makes the difference for you. When we look at the numbers right here, they’re not drastically different, but when you hold the mice in your hands, you can feel that the Model O is a little bit longer and the G Pro a little taller.
Now that we’re talking about the width, they are different, but it isn’t easy to tell, at least for someone with medium to large hands like me. I prefer both to be a little wider, but the Model O sitting lower than the G Pro is the biggest difference in this case.
So for the Model O, I generally bring it into the fingertip, a little bit of claw relaxed fingertip is where I tend to go with this right here, but I cannot bring this guy back into my palm; I have to work hard and then try to rest my hand down to bring this into a palm, and that’s a bummer for me right there because I like a little bit of palm when I get into hot and heated moments.
Again, grip, hand size, and preferred shapes are all matters of personal preference, so I’m letting you know about mine right here. However, if you use an older model, such as the Lowe’s or Zowie FK series, that’s pretty much exactly what you have here, and you are aware of that grip and shape. Now the G Pro Superlight is identical to the first G Pro wireless, so if you grip that, you know what it is.
Still, as far as the G Pro, it fits my hand a lot better for every grip fingertip claw again; it’s just nice and cozy. That hump is defiantly more prominent. You feel the hump difference here. G Pro, I can pull it back and rest it in my hand.Now you’re not getting that ergonomic mouse-like palm grip type feel, but you can still pull it back and it’s very comfortable for any situation, at least for me.
The weight of the devices is the next thing that differs, with the Model O Wireless weighing 69 grammes and the G Pro X Superlight weighing 63 grammes. You may be thinking, “Man, that’s not really going to make a difference for me; they’re both incredibly lightweight for wireless mice,” and you’d be right; they are both extremely light.
Now, this is where the differences begin. First, notice how the Model O wireless has a honeycomb hole, and the G Pro X Superlight is solid with no holes or anything. If you don’t like that, you can have it fixed at the factory, but that’s beside the point if you get what I mean.One of the best things about the G Pro X is how light it is while still being solid.
Weighing in at 63 grams, this mouse is incredibly well-balanced and not too heavy on the front, back, or sides. Lifting this mouse in any position causes no strain at all. The Model O Wireless will now receive this. I was immediately drawn to that when I saw it.
You can see the PCB and everything else scooched up to the front of the mouse right there in the internals, and since my primary fingertip is a fingertip or claw, I can feel the weight toward the front of the mouse. Is it a deal-breaker? No, but it’s clear as day that you feel it. And again, since my primary fingertip is a fingertip or claw, with that weight being up front, you feel it drastically.
Talking about the G Pro super light again, it is once more perfectly balanced and you can feel its 63 grams no matter where or how you are gripping it. I could go on and on about it; you could hear about it; you could look at the numbers and think, “Man, not a big deal,” but when you hold them in your hands, you’ll understand exactly what I mean.
Now that we’ve discussed the weight, we’re worried whether these mice are still well-built despite being so light. As we just mentioned, Model O Wireless has a honeycomb cutout right there, while G Pro is sturdy, but the build on the latter is questionable.
We all know that Logitech always produces high-quality products, but with this guy weighing in at 63 grams and this solid build like this, it’s incredible how solid this mouse is—hell, both of them—again, the build on both of these guys is top-notch. These mice are incredibly soft, with no creaking, cranking, flexing, button activation, or anything else.
One more thing about the design of these two masters, which many people found objectionable, is the G Pro X Superlight’s continued use of a micro USB. It doesn’t matter that much to me; it has never been a deciding factor or purchase decision-maker in any of my products. If you look at my desk right now, you’ll see that I have more micro USB devices than USB-C.
Yes, I prefer USB-C, but that has yet to be a deciding factor. The biggest benefit is that I don’t have to worry about where I put it; it just connects wherever I put it.But I concur that given this mouse’s price, adding qi charging—or whatever it was called—would have effectively eliminated it from the market.
I’m not sure how much weight that would add, but that would have effectively eliminated this guy from the market, and it would have been cool.So, if we combine the price with the micro USB, it makes sense, but don’t let that be your deciding factor for this mouse, in my opinion.
Glorious Model O Wireless vs Logitech G Pro X Superlight: Extras
Now, I believe that people should pay more attention to the wires exiting the device rather than just the base connection. For myself, I charge my devices overnight, so I never have to worry about this, but if you must use a cable, the Model O Wireless’ cable is excellent—possibly the best cable that comes with the wireless mouse—and is so good that it’s almost parabolic in shape.
Yet another cable, I would concentrate on the stock rubber cable’s charging capabilities even more than the fact that it is c to micro because that is all it is, you know what I mean.
The Model O Wireless uses a Banff sensor, while the G Pro Superlight uses a hero sensor. Both mice perform flawlessly, with no lift-off problems, delays, or other issues. You’ll notice the biggest difference within a few feet, whereas the G Pro Superlight has all that coverage right there.
The feet on the Model O Wireless are very nice big and rounded off right there, and I get a nice glide on them. It covers less ground than the G Pro X Superlight but has nice feet. Honestly, these feet are not the best; they’re thin and soft, and if you ride it off your mouse pad, you get a little scrape and dentures. I will be replacing these asap once available.
The buttons on both of these mice, the model o wireless, separate them next in terms of build and performance. The scroller on this guy is so nice; it’s soft tactile and silent, and I love it. One and two have nice finger grooves. The side buttons are in a perfect position, and there is a rubber grip right above the dpi button. They are very clicky but not too much, stick out just enough, and are in the ideal position.
The scroll wheel is a bit softer than the original G Pro, on my copy here in Call of Duty. I cycle my weapons with my scroll wheel here and I got some accidental cycles with this guy again. It was a little bit softer.
Furthermore, at least for me, I stinking love them great buttons right here, and on the bottom of the mouse, you have your power button coming over here to the G Pro Superlight one and two again, pretty much the same as the original G Pro.Underneath, you have the power button, and if you noticed right there, there is no DPI cycle button on the G Pro Superlight.
You’ll need to adjust that in the software. The side buttons here are also in a great position. They sit slightly further than the Model O Wireless but are still in a great position and very nice and clicky.
Okay, so as we just heard, there are some significant differences between the two mice. We can’t simply say that the Model O Wireless and the G Pro are two very different mice, but the price is, in my opinion, what a lot of people will be most focused on, more so than the shape or anything else. The G Pro Super Light costs $150, which is costly. It is an expensive mouse.
I love being able to say that about Glorious mouse because the previous ones have not been that great at a value price, but this guy screams it right here. The Model O Wireless costs $80, a fantastic price for a wireless gaming mouse of this caliber. It is lightweight, has a great build, and performs well.
The Model O Wireless is a Toyota, and the G Pro Superlight is a Lexus if that makes sense. I’ve driven both of these cars and owned them, so the best way to compare them is that the Model O is a Prius, and the G Pro Superlight is a Lexus. These mice are excellent, so please don’t think I’m trashing them here.
Again, I’m not implying that they aren’t excellent vehicles—I used to own a Prius and currently drive a Tesla—but you can tell the difference in quality between them. For example, this guy’s engineering and design within it is balanced with this lightweight and the felt quality you feel right here again. This is fantastic, but the biggest turnoff for me is that weight being upfront.
I mean, the shape I don’t like is the—G Pro Superlight for me throughout the day.
