To use the xim hub or not
« on: 12:46 PM - 03/07/18 »
Iím sorry if this has been covered before but I heard you can not use the xim hub if you donít want to, like if your keyboard has additional inputs. Is this true? I have a black widow ultimate keyboard and Iím pretty sure it has 2 additional USB ports so if I didnít have to have the additional clutter from the hub thatíd be great. If it is doable, would it add any delay? Iíd try but I wonít have mine till a little later today.  Thanks for the awesome product and support!

Interesting to see if you can use it, but, it might cause a little to much clutter for my liking. I like to have my Xim setup all in one place, away from me on my desk.

 Sorry all Iím a @#$%. It only has 1usb on the side, and even then the keyboard has an extra usb male end for the passthrough so I wouldnít be saving anything..

No worries bud. Thanks for letting us know. I'm sure there are other keyboards out there with at least 2 USB plugs, I wonder if they could be used by simply plugging the keyboard into the Apex, and then plugging the controller and mouse into the keyboard.
