I've done a few mods since then but I hid all wires under the desk.

HDMI Splitter + HDMI Switcher + 2 USB Switches among other things involved with my setup.  The second key oard up top is for PS4 chat.

I started off as a PC gamer, but have played some console games, too. The keyboard and mouse has always been most comfortable to me. The XIM4 allows me to enjoy console games in a way that feels just like using a PC.

My set-up would not complete without the CouchMaster Cycon. It is so comfortable, sometimes I forget that I am playing games on my couch with a kb + mouse :D. Also, I cannot say enough great things about nerdytec's partner, Steiger Dynamics--their customer service is second-to-none (thank you, Brian!).

Everything fits perfectly inside the CouchMaster Cycon. I have run both of the USB repeaters together as a "tether" between the gaming systems and the Cycon. It takes about 5 minutes to get everything ready to play, but it's absolutely worth it because it's so comfortable being able to be on the couch, recline while gaming, and use my keyboard and mouse.

Thank you for letting me share my set-up!

Great desk.  Where did you get it?  Interested in one for myself.

Some pics of my spot. When we had our second child my office became a bedroom, so I switched to a mobile, height adjustable, standing desk. I've been standing while I play lately and have been sleeping and feeling better during the day. When the weather is comfortable I roll this bad boy outside and play there. Fire up a stooge... you know how it goes....









Were you ever able to find out what desk this is? Or anyone else that might know, could you point me in the right direction please? Thanks.

So it looks like a ton of people here actually have gaming PCs, so why donít you guys just play on your PC instead of console? I mean PC is objectively better than console in pretty much every way afterall. I for one would definitely be playing Overwatch on PC instead of my PS4 if I had a good rig. However, I donít want to lose my skins in Overwatch...Also I would post a pic of my setup but Iím on iPhone at the moment and I donít know how to post a pic here on my iPhone.

here is why i personally think why most xim users don't play on pc. first reason i'd say is that most have friends on console that can't afford a good gaming pc or their friends are to scared to play on pc because of the "pc gamers all cheat" thing. the biggest reason i think is because of the advantage.

Well because NO ONE I know in person owns a gaming PC. They all own consoles. When I game on my PC I gotta game with some randoms I just met online.

Well if thatís true then that would make sense. Gaming with friends is always more fun. That would suck tho if you canít play on your PC because your friends are all on console and wonít switch to PC. As for the advantage thing, I feel like thatís not really why people use xim. It doesnít actually give you as big of an advantage as people think. At least not in the game I play (Overwatch) I mean sure it gives a slight advantage, but itís not like it gives you PC M&K aim or anything. You canít flick the mouse and do fast 180s, youíre still limited to what the analog stick can do.

when we get threads asking how to use xim on pc i'd say it def does gives some sort of advantage. it gives console players faster aim advantage and using it on pc gives you aim assist. it won't make you a god but with practice you can join lobbies and own them. i don't want to destroy this thread with the xim advantage talk tho :)

I sincerely hope no one would want to or try to use xim4 on PC Overwatch, that would literally be like shooting yourself in the foot and then trying to run/walk. And yeah sorry to bring XIM advantage discussion into this thread, this is not really the place for that.
