DOOM & OVERWATCH

 

Gaming with the Siege M04 has been a blast. The feel of the mouse is form fitting, and with a medium-sized hand, right from the onset, the shape was something we liked.

 

The rubber grips come into play quite often, especially for those who game at the lower-end of the DPI range, and with the default, LOD set to 2mm, we found the crosshairs moved very little when the time came to lifting it. Most of our gaming was done at 5600 DPI with the Siege M04, as it was the sweet spot for us, allowing us to make breakneck turns when needed, but we were still able to control our weapons in a way to keep them locked on a target.

 

 

Also, the Siege M04 comes with a sniper button which is always set to 200 DPI. Our issue with its use, though, is that it is set forward in the design, so palm grip users may have trouble reaching it. Claw grip users will find it more accessible, but with your hand that far forward, the page back button on the side becomes complicated to use. Whether in tight confines, or in a vast open world, the Siege M04 was able to handle the job at hand, and outside of the button placement, we have nothing to complain about on this topic.

 

 

Windows and Productivity

 

Day to day, we don't need anything special to search the internet and click on links, but with the use of a 4K display, selectable DPI is a must, and the Siege M04 had us covered in this request.

 

When it comes to things like photo editing, which we do a ton of, the Siege M04 is a pleasure to have under our right hand again. Without angle snapping, prediction, or any acceleration in play, correcting images is a breeze as the PMW3360 followed our every move in the finest of detail. If we were drawing a curve, it followed what we wanted to do.

 

If we had to settle down to pinpoint something tiny, we had no issues doing so. All around, this mouse shines, and in our mind, is very able to do any job you set in front of it.
