How does it compare to the Ducky Secret?

/Headscratch..


This has been out for a while,  unusable for g4ming.  poor sensor choice.

up to revision 0004 tested,  n0 buen0



The only way to live the Classic Dream right now is to do Tp4's WMO Ultimate mod..

At least the shell is cut at the fingertips for smooth (omron?) button action.

it is omron..

Peeps have franken moused the shell already..

Seems easy, because the switch PCB is cut-able..

That said,  it's just easier to mod the original IMO/IME. !!

Got one. Construction is top-notch, wheel is tight and smooth, M1/M2 are crisp, M4/M5 are solid and vastly improved. Everything about it is great...

... except the sensor is top-tier trash. If you put the mouse down while moving it, about half the time the cursor moves in the opposite direction from the one the mouse is moving.

I'm actually impressed with how terrible the Blue Track sensor in this thing is. It's shockingly bad.

Welp, that solves a few questions. Good to know

Bluetrack is probably very surface dependent..

What did you use it on ..

Tp4 only ever uses black cloth.

Black cloth pad (Zowie GS-R), hard plastic pad (Corsair MM600), and my bare white desk top (Steelcase Series 5). When it's working correctly, it tracks well on all surfaces. But when it malfunctions, it does so fairly spectacularly.
