Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been looking at the XIM for a while, and when the XIM3 was superceded by the cheaper XIM Edge, and when I saw I could have it next day from Amazon...I simply couldn't resist. Firstly, if you import it directly from XIM you can get it cheaper, although it's not quite as cheap as it looks as shipping is $38 - and when you factor in duty and VAT, I think it comes out around £100 delivered. Cheaper than the £125 I paid, but not that much.

Anyway, onto the product itself. What is the XIM? I'll skim over this part because the chances are if you've searched for this product you already know what it does. In short though, the XIM Edge is a neat little product which enables you to play games on the X-Box with a mouse and keyboard rather than the X-Box controller. There are several similar products on the market but none quite as accomplished as the XIM, mainly because of "smart translators".

One of the issues is that X-Box games are coded for use with a controller, and simply plugging a mouse in leads to all kinds of issues with incorrect tracking, jerky movement etc. XIM's smart translators (which are included in the software that you download from XIM's website) are specific to games such as Battlefield 3, Counterstrike, Halo, COD etc, and effectively provide you with 1:1 mapping, resulting in an experience which is extremely close to playing on a PC. Smart translators don't exist for every game, but they are generally released for the big games within a few days/weeks of their release.

The XIM Edge looks rather underwhelming on first inspection, in a plain white box which is light as a feather. All you get is a quick start guide, the small unit itself and a USB to mini cable.

Being an old school FPS pc player I have always struggled to play call of duty and other FPS type shooters on both the Xbox 360 and PS3. My son and his mates would kick my ass royaly every time!!!
I've tried a few different gadgets to be able to use the mouse and keyboard but none were that good. Then i saw this little beauty on youtube. At first i was a bit sceptical as all the other devices i'd tried said they were the answer. And the price put me off a bit too. So i dug deeper and read up more about it. Then i found out that this thing has its own community and xim teams. Just go to the website and have a look around.
Anyway, i took the plunge and ordered one. Came within 2 days and i hooked it up to my pc and loaded up the profiles for all the top games (both xbox & PS3). Then plugged it into my xbox with the mouse and keyboard. Oh My Sweet Lord this thing is incredible. It is a true 1 to 1 input from the mouse which is exactly what every PC gamer will tell you is essential. You can set the sensitivity on the fly and bind any key pattern you desire.
All in all this is a fantastic device and worth every penny.
Now for some payback with my son and his mates ;)

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
i bought this item quite sceptical at first. there are so many on the market and at first it seemed confusing which one i should buy. I bought this one because of it's "Smart Translators" and it's 1:1 Sensitivity. It arrived 2 days after i ordered it and it worked without a hitch. Sometimes it's a little frustrating trying to find a supported game config to work with an unsupported game but generally you can work out which ones work by how each game plays. There's only 1 thing about the XIM Edge that drops it to 4 stars for me. and that is that i always have to have my wired controller plugged in. Wires don't really bother me. But the wired controller wires are so long it's difficult to keep track of what it's getting tangled around. Either way. Fantastic product. Works and i would recommend it to anyone looking for something to give them an "almost pc" experience. I know i'm impressed and i'm very much a PC gamer.

Hi Guys

The product does what it promises you probably need to get a compatible mouse with that.
After 1 hour of testing and optimizing the device you have a real mouse shooting experience.

Its not rocket science very nice interface.

Price is a bit high..

Thanks
