Creative Sound BlasterX Siege M04 Gaming Mouse Review

Today is a special day for us here at eTeknix as we put the latest Creative hardware to the test! Of course, you may be thinking “but Creative don’t make peripherals?” and that has been true for a very long time, given they’ve always focused on audio hardware and have great success in that market. Now with their continued support of eSports teams, especially with their DAC and Headset products, Creative is looking to put a keyboard and mouse in gamers hands, as well as a headset on their head.

“Crafted from the ground up utilizing years of research and surveying the habits of pro and everyday gamers worldwide, the
Sound BlasterX Siege is a combination and improvement of some of the best ideas found across various types of gaming mice. From the aesthetics and ergonomics, down to the intricate technical details…” said Creative. “We’ve engineered a world-class gaming mouse to rival all others” they added.

The Seige M04 comes equipped with 7 fully programmable buttons, on-board memory, DPI switching, right hand ergonomics, 16.8 million colour lighting effects, as well as a very nice PWM3360 IR LED sensor, which can delivery 12,000 native DPI, promising no acceleration or prediction for high-end accuracy.

“Inside the eye of the heart lies a PixArt PMW3360 IR LED gaming grade sensor and a 32-bit high speed microcontroller capable of a polling rate of 1000 Hz, 12,000 native DPI and a low 2mm lift-off distance with zero built-in acceleration and cursor prediction.”

The mouse comes hard-wired with a thick braided cable that gives it added durability and a premium quality look and feel. There’s a little bit of documentation in the box, but that’s about it, not that you need anything else!

    Bought one yesterday to replace the heavier Logitech G502 I’ve been using. Picked it up from Creative USA for $59… I’ll let you know what I think.

  • Xena Warrior

    So instead of making better audio drivers and releasing them more often, creative decides to make mice.

  • Deividas Zbarauskas

    looks good, though i still like g502 once in a while on my desk in FPS games

  • Greg Bryett

    Hmm. received today. The general shape feel good in the hand, however the scroll wheel is terrible, makes a noise while scrolling and to me feels cheap! Also where in the software can I rebind the buttons!!! Perhaps the software is beta, but where do I rebind buttons????

      Hi Greg, what are you trying to rebind?

      • Greg Bryett

        Confirmed by Creative, currently no way to rebind any buttons in software, making the extra thumb button pretty much useless in game.

        • Eugene Koh

          It’s m4 or m5 that’s recognised in windows. You just need to assign it in-game. What game are you playing?
