Inside the Model O

The rear feet need removing so that a pair of screws can be taken out to open the Model O. Once that is done, we had to remove a couple of ribbon cables to open it fully, allowing us to see inside of it. As for those ribbon cables, the cables power the RGB LED strips on the sides of the mouse, and everything else is contained in the lower half.

The left-click button is backed with a D2FC-F-7N(20M) Omron switch, but this is the first we have seen the (OF) designation. The pressure to actuate is normal compared to what we are used to, and it comes with an audible click in response.

On a vertical PCB, we find a pair of green Huano switches which back the page forward and page back buttons. These switches require less force to actuate than the Omron switches, and the report is not as audible but does click.

Thinking about what is needed to control the features of the Model O, we feel an 8-Bit MCU is all they need. And we hope this is at least that. We say this, as the BT8948-00006 painted on the IC lead us nowhere when it came to searching for its maker or specifications.

Double-checking against the specifications, we do indeed find the PixArt PMW3360DM optical sensor. Just to the right of it, we also see a third green Huano switch, this time backing the DPI button.

Back at the front of the mouse, we are now looking under the right-click button. Not only do we see the match to the Omron on the other side, but we can see that the scroll wheel click is registered with a fourth Huano green switch.

As we always do, we get a look at the mouse after applying power. The Glorious Model O may not have as many RGB LEDs as some out there, but the trim lines and the scroll wheel are enough, in our opinion. The lighting is bright and easily visible in full light conditions, and if it doesn't suit you, you can dim the illumination, and even turn it off.
