Just ordered a Xim. Best mouse\keyboard?
« on: 10:53 AM - 12/11/15 »
I'll be getting my Xim in a couple days, so in the meantime I need a good mouse and keyboard for it. Price isn't really a factor. Should I go for high dpi? I'm completely new to this and some suggestions would be great!

The G502 is an excellent mouse, I would recommend that. Keyboards are less important, any keyboard on our compatibility list should be fine. Look for something that you will like and then check the list to see whether it's compatible.

Thanks for the quick response. G502 it is then. Has great reviews on newegg. Is it pretty much plug and play into the Xim?

Also, I have a turtle beach headset that connects through the controller. Will that work while being connected through the Xim?

I believe so. It has three profiles and several DPI levels by default. It's recommended to use a high dpi with XIM4. You will have to press the dpi + button a few times each startup. Or you could run LGS with the mouse attached to your PC, and set it to use only one profile and one DPI level to make things easier. If you do this make sure that onboard memory is selected in LGS. The app is easy to navigate so I would recommend getting this out of the way.

Which console?

Sounds good. Thanks for the information. The console is Xbox One. The turtle beach is designed specifically for the Xbox one. Connects through the controller like any other headsets without any audio cables.

if it's for xbox one, it'll be fine - just connect it like you would without the xim.

G502 all the way I was once a DA2013 guy and it was a great mouse but now that I have the G502 I won't go back haha. Best of luck and welcome to the community.

I use it as my PC mouse so I've gotten used to the smaller shape. I think the weight is my only gripe with it now. How long did it take you to adjust from DA to G502? I know the DA is about 20g lighter.

G502 is the most popular around here. I use a Roccat Kone mouse and love the thing. Try to buy a mechanical keyboard on the comparability list....red or brown switches are most popular in the gaming world. I use razer blackwidow with orange switches (comparable to the mx browns)

+1 on the g502.  Just got one on a black friday special and i see why everyone talks about it.

Also look into the sony nav controller if you would like to keep and analog for movement instead of a keyboard.  They are pretty cheap so it doesn't hurt giving them a try.

I don't use weights and its manageable and took only a little while to get used to compared to how light the DA2013 is. The weight isn't too bad but the shape takes a little getting used to honestly. The extra buttons was a big plus and the added DPI was a big seller. Figuring out how I would map the mouse and getting comfortable with the design isn't too bad it's just a longer and thinner mouse so my grips changed some. After using a DA since the Xim3 released to changing to a G502 was a big jump but the pros outweigh the cons so I'm happy with the decision. It was also only $40 brand new on a cyber monday deal so I can't complain :).
