What I honestly don't get is how companies can make mistakes like that if they've been done before and proved unsuccessful.

Ickz 02-06-2019 12:18 PM

Yikes. I always have to wonder if the people designing these atrocious, gimmicky mice actually play games and/or know what gamer's actually want. LCD screen on a mouse... just... I dunno man.

gunit2004 02-06-2019 12:32 PM

I thought this was a respectable company? LCD screen mice and crappy gaming chairs? lmao...

plyr 02-07-2019 03:08 AM

Well, their previous mice were not good either.

ryan92084 02-07-2019 03:20 AM

If they ditched the LCD I might give it a whirl just for the pbt shell.

They are a respectable keyboard company.

on their instagram they should actually have images of what the mouse actually looks like, no lcd screen. I really liked the Original Secret, it had the smoothest glide I've had from any mouse. Although the weight was terrible at 120, I could still play with it

duhizy 02-07-2019 03:34 PM

Your wrists aren't ready for 140 grams, they just aren't man enough.

THIS is the most important part of this mouse.

Especially an all over PBT shell :thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb: .

Bring it on down to Convict Town.

Color me interested if they can shave some of the weight of the original Secret off. I has been a while since I've had some quack on my desk.

@Klopfer thank you for the OP updates

The first Ducky Secret was such an elegant mouse, and now we have this. What were they thinking.

boogdud 02-19-2019 08:27 AM

The Ducky Secret M is still the best shape I've ever used. Unfortunately, I can't use it because the lift off distance is like 11 meters and the "custom" setting for surface calibration does not work. In fact, it never worked, and they never fixed it which gives me low confidence in them.

Hopefully this one will be good out of the box because you can rest assured that they will never put out a firmware update once it's in the wild.


Can you tell I'm a little bitter about the Secret/Secret M?

They barely even provide any firmware updates for their keyboards, let alone anything for their mouse products.

Not peeved at any rate because Zowie has been doing it for years, in NEVER providing a single firmware update at all.

This is true, however Zowie from the beginning made it clear that their mice couldn't even take a firmware update. Ducky put out a firmware for the original Secret that fixed a couple issues (none of the important ones) and then pretended that the Secret and Secret M didn't exist until they announced the "2".

The bad thing is, the M sensor implementation is so bad that even with the tape fix it still creeps and crawls around trying to look for that "magical" 4-6mm liftoff distance.

So close to perfection, just ruined by a bad sensor implementation. It'd be one thing if this was a brand new sensor, but this is a friggin 3310, which was long in the tooth by the time the secret m came out. Just a bummer.

I'm only so bitter about it because the mouse shape and feel are absolutely amazing. But the sensor is trash.

It was their very FIRST mouse attempt hence I am far more willing to forgive them here quite easily (Zowie, not so much).

I LOVE their shape and their high quality Omrons and Alps Scroll Wheel, so it isn't a BAD mouse by any means but it isn't a 'Gaming Device' at all.

The PBT shell is still being used by me and I am refusing to get rid of it, simply because it's the best OFFICE mouse yet in my collection.

Totally agreed. The PBT shell is amazing on the secret/m and the shape is so comfortable for me. Honestly the only issues I have are the sensor issue (which is pretty big) and the cable comes out of the mouse at an odd angle and drags on the mousepad about 2" in front of the mouse. I have 3 of them and all of them do it in the same spot. Kinda weird.

Hopefully the ergonomics feel the same with the 2, because in that regard, they are up there with zowie. Quality wise (sensor implementation aside) they blow zowie out of the water.

I've been using a tape modded Secret M for 3 months now.

You should tape mod it. LoD is the same as my GPro.

added one more picture from instagramm to the startpost

-1nf1n1ty- 05-07-2019 04:09 PM

I'm not hype for it, but I really do think it looks cool. Hoping for the best, I'll probably get one down the line. I guess it will be ready by computex 2019?

Klopfer 05-07-2019 05:07 PM

last instagramm picture shows also #computex2019

"Greeting, Ducky fans, our Secret 2 will be presented with the latest specification at 2019 Computex.  
We have been through lots of difficulties and challenges regarding to our persistence in handling and PBT materials.
  
- Secret 2 inherits the appearance of the most popular mouse Secret M, with a multi-functional LCD screen and RGB surrounding lighting effects. Made out of PBT material with upgraded braided wire.
  
- Ducky Secret 2's Micro Switch uses Japanese-made Omron Switch with more than 50 million micro-motions.   
  
- The ALPS encoder used.
  
- Upgraded Pixart PMW3389 optical sensor provides accurate control and good touching feeling wheel with Maximum 16000DPI.
  
Come experience the whole new Secret 2 at 2019 Computex with us "

:( I was hoping they would cut the LCD Screen :(

With them having show it both ways maybe there will just be two models?

-1nf1n1ty- 05-13-2019 09:50 AM

I thought there wasnt going to be an LCD screen...Well, I guess its best to wait and see what happens, but this isn't looking too great to me. Maybe they can surprise me?

Elrick 05-16-2019 05:57 PM

The ONLY 3 main concerns for any mouse user are these;

Ducky Secret 2's Micro Switch uses Japanese-made Omron Switch with more than 50 million micro-motions. :thumb: 

The ALPS encoder used.:thumb:
  
Upgraded Pixart PMW3389 optical sensor provides accurate control and good touching feeling wheel with Maximum 16000DPI.:thumb:

That are the ONLY issues that give us a potentially Great Mouse to play with. Also having all over PBT shell is another winner here.

This shall be another Great Model released to those that appreciate Quality and Finish.

Talon720 05-17-2019 12:10 PM

Even if they are using the Japanese microswitches which do feel good they are still gonna have the same issue as every other mouse out there concerning debounce and double click, unless of course they used optical switches. I would want ducky to try to make a mouse with their pbt shell still but light id think a pbt shell could benefit from having holes like some others. Personally, Id like to see optical switches on the mouse I know they wouldn't be the first to do it, but at least one of the few. The benefits of optical switches getting rid of debounce/double click issues plus low latency seems like a win. An actual competitive combining optical switches weight at least under 100g top sensor would get more hype than a lcd screen. I could be wrong but i know a4 tech bloody mice sorta fit this mold but I haven't heard the greatest things about them. Heres to hoping that maybe they will take their head out of where ever they have it and actually try.
