So I've been looking for a XIM replacement since my mouse isn't supported and came across this, I didn't know Sony were officially licensing this type of device, let alone one that allows macros, rapid fire etc.

Is this worth trying out bearing in mind my XIM is nothing more than an expensive paper weight right now!

For that price you might as well buy a new mouse instead as realistically it won't perform as well as the XIM. I am not just saying that as of course i am a XIM user but you can ask anyone who has tried keyboard and mouse adaptors and the XIM really is the best.

A better question is, does that Split fish left hand chuck work with XIM4?

No way I give up XIM4 precision for split fish, not happening.

I had a splitflish before I had the XIM and the SplitFish is awful.

There is no other device with translators that the XIM uses so you will never have a 1:1 mouse movement. They will be boxy, you will feel acceleration as the Xim takes it out as long as it's not random.

Splitfish is balls. Easily the worst m/kb adapters I tried (bought wired and wireless versions of the FragFX) before stumbling onto the Xim3. Cheap crappy materials too, just terrible all-round.

Your better option is to get a sh!t-hot mouse that uses the PMW 3360 or 3366 sensor. Any of the recent Logitech mice work superbly with a Xim, including the cheaper models like G303 and G403.

Pair an optical mouse with a hardpad to minimise jitter and you're good as gold.

So that makes 2 official KB/M adapters for the ps4 but none for the xbox?

Makes me wonder if Xbox doesn't have something up there sleave like native KB/M,

OR...... has Obsiv secretly going to license the xim on xbox :-)

Dude don't waste your money.  Just buy a new mouse like the G502 simple.

venom-x, old fragfx, splitfish (new fragfx), the one for playstation (I can't remember the name, eye-something or something-eye) and now Brook Sniper. From what I've heard and read no one is better than xim4. The freedom to adjust as you like and the top notch translator system of xim is still unbeatable.

I have used splitfish devices in the past as well as some of the other users and I will like to give you some advice that will save you some money. Follow the steps below.

1) Get a jar\cup
2) Write Splitfish on the jar\cup.
3) Throw in your money.
4) Take money out and place it back in your pocket.
5) Done, without the refund mess or going though what some of us went through. 8)

OK thanks for the advice guys, I've had a lot of problems with the xim, but from the sounds of it other devices will be even worse... out of the frying pan into the fire situation! I guess I could give one more mouse a try with the xim and hope yet another doesn't fail, they say third times a charm right 😁

What problems are you having with the Xim? Most issues are relatively easy to sort out once we know what's going on :)

Are you a beta tester, we have a nice project going on that might can help you?

What problems are you having with the Xim? Most issues are relatively easy to sort out once we know what's going on :)

I have a g500 which was working but occasionally suffered power issues, I use it combined with a Sony nav (wired), tried plugging both into a powered USB hub. This works until the nav starts charging, at which point the mouse stops working, it's as if the charging mode switches everything off. If I leave it to fully charge and plug it all back in it works until the charge drops to the point where it starts charging and it all disconnects again.

So I thought I would try a new mouse, turns out the Corsair scimitar isn't supported (side buttons don't work), so again the nav setup can't be used.  I also bought a brand new nav, that had the exact same problem with the g500 (which works fine on PC btw), then just in case the new nav came with a bad battery I bought a brand new battery which I tried in both nav controllers.... still the same issue !!

Both navs and mice work perfectly fine on my PC and so most of my gaming is on there now and xim gathers dust

Edit: forgot to add that I come back here once a month to ask when drivers for the scimitar will be added but those posts just get ignored now, that's why I've started looking for alternative device

I bought the splitfish shark for PS4 before the Xim4 and it was total crap. My gaming experience wasn't half as smooth as it is with the Xim4 and after like two weeks of use the left mouse button failed. I e-mailed splitfish but they never answered.
