Will I pay import taxes to Portugal?
These are 29.99 dollars at Microcenter, but in-store pickup only https://www.microcenter.com/product/478813/sound-blasterx-siege-m04-gaming-mouse I got mine there a few days ago, working create so far and I'm quite pleased with the build quality. Lighting on the X isn't great for certain colours but I thought it was a good deal for 29.99
Will there be a white option
It says in the description that it requires a intel core processor or higher. Does that mean it doesn't work with ryzen processors?
Spacullama
I haven't tried it on a Ryzen, but I am very doubtful that this mouse would be processor locked. I've got one on an Intel i7 machine and another on an AMD FX8350. The mouse works fine on both machine.
Is there anyway to check when my product will be shipped ??
Does it actually usually take the full amount of time to ship?
i wonder if import tax are included
sancios
nope
I just want a larger model mouse to fit my hands tbh
Its an overall decent mouse, its kinda just a better G502 as the shape is super similar. Its not amazing and its not gonna be great for Competitive FPS but overall its decent if you want a slightly lighter G502.
Its gonna come down to preference but you can get the G203 for cheaper and if the shape works for you its a better option as the cable is better, and its much lighter. So it would be better for FPS.
But if you just want a casual gaming mouse with RGB this is a decent option, but the software isn't great.
Yes i do own one, but i don't use it.
I can't believe Creative made mouse... Good one them to make sure their first foray has a 3360. Could be much lighter though. 110 grams without cable!? Does it have an internal plate that we can remove? .... Warranty blah blah blah who cares...
Does the mouse actually have a smoke machine inside, or was that image taken after an electrical fault?
I'm only joining if there's a built-in smoke machine...
EDIT: Looks like they got rid of the smoke machine pic.
srfilipek
smoke machine LOL. I guess this mouse needs something going for it.
Sound Blaster mouse? I think that takes the cake for meaningless brand name. How do you put a mouse under the same brand as sound cards?

The Mercury sensor in the G203 is within margin of error in terms of performance to the 3360. Machine tests have proven this, far beyond what most if not all humans are capable of detecting at a reasonable DPI. High DPI is a meme. Every single sensor, even the 3360 and its variants, have been proven to have smoothing past ~2000 DPI, not to mention most people looking for a budget mouse probably won't have any high pixel density monitors that'd even require something as high as 8K DPI let alone 12K. Sniper buttons are not recommended, especially at the pro level, as you should only be using a single sens setting for your muscle memory. And for the last time, RGB also adds unnecessary weight. The HyperX Pulsefire Surge is a perfect example of why that's a bad thing. Probably the best mouse HyperX has made shape-wise ruined by the fact that a mouse of that size should not be over 100 grams.
Also, the G203 does have Omrons... Would it kill you to do at least some research on the matter?
the G502 has 6 programmable buttons for any needs (other than the right and left click, which are programmable). The Creative mouse, is a good mouse though, which is undeniable.
Hello Everyone! The contest thread is now active. If you have purchased the Vanguard & Siege please see this link on how to enter the contest. https://www.massdrop.com/talk/1832/aurora-morealis Cheers.
Look awsome
Wait for another Nixeus Revel drop.
Same sensor and cheaper...
but if you like this mouse go for it
RubberDuckyNinja
I have tried both mice and they are not even close in build quality or performance. Yes, for a down and dirty, no frills mouse the Nixeus fits the bill. However, the quality of materials used, ergonomics, look and feel of the Creative mouse are much better. The Creative Siege also has RGB and a great software interface to program all buttons on the mouse and the sensor to your personal liking.
Besides we are only talking $14 bucks more to get the Creative Siege and everything I mentioned before. Seems like a no brainier.
B.Hutch@AKRacing
Looks, feels, and ergonomics are subjective. A LOT of people love the classic SS Sensei shape that the Revel takes after. Looks are also subjective, and so is your software. Zowie's mice are well loved but have no RGB or none of that software stuff. Not everyone wants software if that means the mouse won't perform the same on every computer. Not everyone wants RGB because that adds weight. Weight is the name of the game, and as more companies like Logitech, Finalmouse, etc. keep pushing the weight of their mice down, heavier mice like these will get left behind. There is a reason why proessionals don't use mice like the G502, which is a relative brick and severely hinders aim. The Revel is light, a good 20+ grams lighter than the Creative Siege. If you plan on getting a no frills mouse that was meant for competitive FPS, seems like a no brainer.
I don't know why, but I laughed my ass off at the first picture of the mouse with the smoke/dust behind it. Thank you for that!
BiggestMac
I put it there just for you! lol
My shipment hasn't had a status update since the 22nd of February - there's no sign of it having even left the US yet. Can't access the tracking page either today as receiving a redirect loop. Bit disappointed.
thesavage-me
Never mind, the redirect loop has been resolved and there appears to be an update!
This has to be one of the best looking gaming mouses out there! Very ergonomic and fits the hand rather well.

It has been about five days since FedEx last updated where the package was. Slightly scared?
iKiwiz
Mine changed to ' Out for delivery ' by USPS earlier today. This has taken forever! You've got to improve on shipment dates Massdrop!
I joined by my mistake. well i'm gonna use this for a mood lighting lamp. this mouse has beautiful rgb. but super heavy weight. I could understand if it had wireless system but it doesn't. so i gues it's gonna be great mood light lamp for me.
Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.
We are currently working towards a new update system to reduce confusion in the Discussion and in the interim, all future updates on this drop will be sent directly by e-mail. Please verify your email address is correct under your settings so that you receive the latest updates for the group. You can change your settings here: https://www.massdrop.com/settings/user_info

How long will it take this product to get to my house?
drewzur
They said the Estimated ship date is Feb 17, 2017.
Does anyone know how many independent lighting zones the mouse has/ can they be controlled on a one by one basis in the software?
A question about the mouse and software. Are you able to program what each buttons do and create macros through the software? That's the only thing holding me back from getting this mouse.
Load 2 more comments
Yeah, I've been looking around for the option to change the buttons + add macros from the software but from all the videos I've watched (which are very limited), I haven't seen any options to. They did say that the buttons are programmable and there is onboard memory so I'm hoping the program will improve to support that.

I'm coming from a m65 pro rgb, so I'm hoping for around the same feel/ performance because of the same sensor and relatively similar weight (m65 is like 5g more). But I wanted to try a new mouse shape and I like that the siege has lights around the mouse. With the m65, I cover the main light part with my palm and that has always bothered me.
Need some advice! How would this compare to the Razer DeathAdder Chroma or Logitech G502 or Corsair M65 Pro RGB?
rahulrajeev1990
I know it has the same sensor as the m65 pro. It's 5g less in weight than the m65 with its weight off. So I'm hoping for about the same performance/ feeling ( besides shape difference). I decided to buy this for these reasons and I'm looking to try a new mouse shape. I also like the fact that my palms won't get in the way of the lights.
rahulrajeev1990
edge RGB LED looks great!
Kieltre
Our thinking was...why light up if your hand is just going to cover it?
As noted below we spent a lot of time working on the diffusion and making sure lighting transitions and whatnot were smooth....lots of cool stuff we can do audio synchronization ;)
DigitalRonyn
You did a good job on the lighting, and the mouse seems like a good buy, good job.
Looks pretty good, I'd pick it up if I didn't already have a mouse I like. I'm a fan of the edge LEDs, as opposed to the LEDs used by other brands that are covered up completely if you actually use the mouse.
wilrob2
Thanks for the comment! We love the edge lighting as well. We took extra time on the light diffusing and zoning so that if you were using multiple colors the fade effects are extra smooth.
Any chance of an ambidextrous or left handed version?
Kaneever
Definitely under consideration for a future model.
DigitalRonyn
Cool! If i ever see a left handed mouse at this price range and quality, i'll get 2 instantly!
Hey there everyone, his is Ryan from the Sound BlasterX team.
I just wanted to let you all know I'm here to answer any questions you may have regarding the Siege or Vanguard.
I also wanted to give a bit of background on the "why" we've decided to venture into the brutally competitive gaming peripheral segment.
The Sound Blaster brand has been around PC Gaming since the well...since the beginning of PC gaming really. And all through that time we've innovated and striven to bring new technology to gamers and the gaming desktop to make the experience as exciting and cinematic as possible.
We've been watching the absolute magnificent resurgence of the PC gaming segment and seen the opportunity in the peripherals segment to do something different that would compliment our product lines and provide a full gaming accessory and peripheral lineup.
When the press has been asking about "Why would a sound manufacturer get into MIce and Keyboards?" My response has been "Why would a mouse and keyboard manufacturer get into audio products?"
If you're passionate about gaming and passionate about making good products...it's a pretty logical extension as long as you have the engineering talent to jump in feet first.
Our expertise for 30 years has been centered around audio, but we have a core of very talented product designers who are themselves gamers and when the opportunity to make peripherals was brought to the table they grabbed on to it and started the process with making products that are ones that we ourselves want to use on our desktops.
Coming to market with a "me-to" factory solution was not an option. By that I mean the multitude of peripheral clones out there that are simply marketing exercises for brands to slap their name on a factory default model and call it a "gaming" product by adding some LEDs or catching lighting.
The Siege and Vanguard are purpose built and intentionally designed to bring another flavor to the peripheral market.
We KNOW how keyboards and mice are some of the most scrutinized peripherals on the market by the demanding gamer because they are essentially the primary interface point for a gamer to the game. So we wanted to make products that would bring a unique combination of tech and features to the market..not something to follow existing paradigms but something that a gamer who might have liked something "similar" to the Siege or Vanguard would find a PERFECT fit with them.
And once again we've decided to jump in the deep end...just like with our Katana we've come to Massdrop to launch our latest products to some of the most scrutinizing and demanding customers out there (at a great price of course!). We know this category is "new" to us in many peoples minds (we actually made mice and keyboards 13 years ago when I started at Creative), but are confident people who jump in now are going to really dig what these products are bringing to the table.
We hope you enjoy!
Ryan & The Sound BlasterX Team

Why is this mouse for sale in the UK but not the US right now?
JDBattleMC
Europe was the first region to the receive the new Sound BlasterX peripherals for the channel (coincided with Dreamhack Winter). The US is just launching into the channel now.
Does this mouse have internal speakers? /s
Suuu
idk but wtf is creative making a mouse for?
Suuu
We'll note that as a feature request for the future.
