Caseking and ComputerBase are looking for three private testers who want to get to the bottom of the new all-round gaming mouse Glorious Model I in black or white and then do a reader test on theirs in the ComputerBase forum Publish impressions and experiences.
The new Glorious Model I in detail
After Glorious' While the Model O and Model D families have now been completed with smaller Minus variants and wireless models, Glorious has now dedicated itself to a new mouse with a different shape: the Model I, initially wired.
Three additional buttons
As an “all-round gaming mouse” with no specific focus on shooters, the Model I uses more buttons: Compared to the Model O and Model D, three buttons were added. The Model I is not littered with buttons like some competitors on the market. On the back of the mouse, the Model I has two buttons instead of one, and four thumb buttons instead of two on the left flank – making three buttons more. On the bottom and rear switches, the magnetically fixed button covers can be removed and replaced with differently shaped or flat alternatives.
Thanks to its lightweight construction including holes in the chassis, the Model I weighs only 69 grams and does not offer a four-way mouse wheel.
Proven technology under the hood
Glorious still uses the BAMF sensor based on PixArts PMW-3370 and mechanical microswitches for the primary keys. Gliding feet made of pure PTFE and a flexibly wrapped cable ensure good gliding properties.
The Glorious Model I is available in black and white for EUR 69.90 from Caseking directly from stock.

ComputerBase readers are testing the Model D Glossy
Three ComputerBase Readers have the chance to test the Model I. Each tester can decide whether they prefer black or white.
Requirements and requirements
Caseking leaves the testers who should be confident in German spelling and grammar , largely free hand in the procedure. However, the focus of the tests should be on the use of the mice in different games, the precision and the weight.
- The test must be at least 800 Words include
- At least three self-created photos of the mouse in use on the home gaming PC
The following information is required so that Caseking and ComputerBase can select suitable candidates:
- Planned test scope (priority setting, game selection)
- Information on comparison options
- Desired variant (decision required)
Anyone who applies for the reader test in the forum gives their consent to the requirements mentioned above and the deadlines defined below.
Applications can be submitted up to and including June 2, 2022 in the comment thread for the note. The test participants will be selected on June 3rd by Caseking and ComputerBase. The participants will then receive further information via private message in the forum. If not enough usable applications have been received by the end of the application period, Caseking and ComputerBase reserve the right to extend the period.
The finished test reports must be published in the ComputerBase forum by July 3, 2022 at the latest. Any delays in the test process must be communicated to ComputerBase one week before the deadline. If problems arise, contact the editors at any time, who will then mediate.
Once the rules-compliant tests have been published, the samples become the property of the testers. The results may not be published in other forums. If no test is created by the deadline, Caseking will charge the tester for the mouse at RRP. The legal process is excluded.
If you have any questions about the procedure, you can also ask them here in this thread.
