Hey there guys, I'm adding stuff to an Amazon list to purchase some items soon.

I was wondering if I connected my G502 and by G13 to an iOgear USB switch and I connected that USB switch to port 1 of my xim 4 and to my brand new Alienware Laptop, would that be a good way to save myself to having to disconnect and reconnect my gaming peripherals whenever I wanna switch from console to PC gaming?

I'm asking because I have an extra iOgear usb switch that I'm not using right now.

Thank you very much in advanced :)

I have two IOGear GUS404's in my setup hiroshimus. One to share the Xim on 4 x consoles, and another to share m/kb between Xim and PC.

One of the IOGear switches has the m/kb plugged into it and yes, the switch plugs into the Xim on Port 1 or 2, with another cable leading to PC.

Thank you very much Anti!

I figured it would work!

I'll save a lot of money just by doing that!
