Mice infestation: 37 gaming mice review

37 gaming mice of 15 brands tested


Creative: Sound BlasterX Siege M04

We know Creative from their sound solutions and while this product could have been a sound card if you only look at the name, the Sound BlasterX Siege M04 is actually a mouse. Some time ago this manufacturer started selling gaming-peripherals and this mouse is one of the first results of it.

The Siege M04 is long but not very wide and especially suited for a palmgrip, if you are right handed. Around the edge we find rgb lighting, which is an elegant implementation in our opinion. Unfortunately the logo at the top is always red, which kind of diminishes the effect. On the left side, just like the right side finished with rubber for extra grip, we find three programmable buttons: the middle one near your thumb, for the other two you have to move your thumb a bit. .

The brand uses a PixArt PMW3360-sensor for this mouse, with a maximum of 12,000 dpi. The three settings that you change between using the dpi-button are however set at 400, 800 and 1400 dpi. Using the extensive software you can change these values, the lighting and configure macros. The only thing that is missing is saving profiles, so that you can give the buttons different functions per game.

The test results are excellent: we measure speeds of more than 4 m/s and a very low lift-off distance of 1.23 mm.
