The model O has been a great way to experience lightweight glossy in the meantime, and I can't say I've disliked the shape, but it's going straight into the drawer with the other mice as soon as I'm able to buy this bad boy.
This is UNIRONICALLY endgame for me. And I'm happy that all of the mistakes they made with the O and O- are being corrected for the D.
Yeah man it looks very promising going by the pics. Looking forward to finding out it's dimensions. I'm glad we're getting more lightweight ergo shapes now.
The Skoll is still a good mouse IMO, the rough matte coating isn't bad but yes I do agree the coatings on the Model O were nicer. They did get a lot of things right with the Skoll though. Popular shape, very light, 3360, amazing cable (easily the best stock cable currently), relatively decent software and on-board storage that remembers ALL your settings (unlike some Razer stuff that only remembers DPI settings) and all the extra stuff you get with the mouse.
However my issue after buying both the Skoll and the Hati is the high prices and no RMA for quality control issues. My Skoll had a loose M2 (pretravel) and my Hati's buttons are both atrociously loose (LOTS of vertical freeplay). I can fix these issues but the mice cost over $100 AUD to buy from x-raypad and for that price you shouldn't have to fix the mouse yourself.
I know some people had loose button issues with the Model O and it's possible that issue will pop up again on the Model D, but at least you can get a replacement if this happens with Glorious. In Australia most retailers will replace it for you. If the price is the same as the Model O it will be cheaper than buying a Skoll as well, so the Skoll may become a hard sell once this is available worldwide.
