XIM4 because has the much better mouse movements, so for me thats an easy choice.
But the correct answer would be XIM Apex, since its cheaper and better than a XIM4 ;).

Okay and what are you basing your opinion on that XIM4 is better?

I said XIM 4 because it's the one I can get for free or the ReaSnow S1 one of the two, not both

Od1n answered your question. XIM4 is much more accurate as each fps game has its own unique Smart Translator rather than Reasnow’s one size fits all approach.

But, TBH, you’re basically asking a bunch of XIMmers whether the S1 is better than the device that they've chosen. We're gonna say XIM, right. ::) I bet if you ask the same question on the Reasnow forum, then you're gonna get the opposite response. Does that help you? No.

My advice is buy both and try them out. Return the one that doesn't work as well. (P.S. It won't be the XIM4 :).)

do you have any idea why?
wrong settings ?

I don't, but then it took me a few weeks to set up my 4, back in the day. I got it dialled in by following the Quick Start guide and Expert Configuration (http://) vids. Fact is, if the Reasnow feels better to you, then you should go with that device.

I tested the XIM4 today and honestly
It is more consistent than the ReaSnow S1

On all FPS, did you know the difference in camera quality between the 2 ( smart translation)

XIM maps each game's look mechanics individually via a Smart Translator, on all supported platforms, for both HIP & ADS. Reasnow uses a ripoff of a generic XIM 2 translator for all games.

Pretty sure the ReaSnow CrossHair was just a reversed engineered Tuact Venom?

I remember OBsIV mentioned something about that a few years back after I pointed out both the Venom & CrossHair game config/support list was identical.
