Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2017-04-20

The Siege M04 mouse from Creative takes part of the Sound BlasterX product family and incorporates one of the best sensors on the market: PixArt PMW3360, which we have also found with the Rival 700 by SteelSeries. The product does feature RGB lighting near its base which is configurable via the Sound Blaster Connect application and can be synchronized with other peripherals supporting the Aurora Reactive technology such as the Vanguard K08 or the Sound BlasterX Katana.
