    Pros: - It works really well on my Trust keyboard. - Even special function keys still work (only one character won't type for me). - It's cheaper than buying a new keyboard / mouse! - Only 1 usb port needed for mouse and keyboard! - Works well on Windows XP, Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10

    Cons: - It's big, you'll need some room to plug it in. - No other real cons

    Other: If you should need something like this, get this one! Don't get the ones that just convert, they usually don't work, this one has a chip in it you'll need it. It's good value for money!

    Pros: very good product ,it is rare to find and now i can reuse my old ps/2 keyboard and mouse. It work very good on ubuntu 10.10 x64 but i think will work on all the os .

    Cons: It is large so if you have a pc with 2 usb very next to each other you will not able to use one of the 2.

    Other: I like the idea that i can use my old (1999) keyboard when i want,luckly i didn't trash it !!!

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It just works.
    My laptop has only 3 usb ports, this device makes is possible to plug mouse and keyboard in just one, without using a hub.

    Cons: Its a bit bulky, my usb ports are above eachother, so it isn't a real problem. It might be when your ports are side by side.
    You can't use the multi media keys on your ps2 keyboard. Thats too bad, but I was aware of that when ordering, so that can't be considered a real con.
    The light on top might be anoying in low light, but nothing a little ducttape can't solve.

    Other: Don't buy a new keyboard when you have one lying around. Just buy this thing. Older keyboards are more sturdy anyway!

    posted by Frederick on 13:05:11 G7T 19/07/2010 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It is a little too big, it is sticking out a little too much. looks sturdy and works - it allows to plug PS/2 mouse directly into it.
    It works as USB plug and play - I mean you can plug it easily after the computer is started - something that used to be prblem with regular ps/2

    Cons: It does work with my wii, but not all the time. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. I would not recommend to use this with your wii, it would be great with computers.

    Other: very useful, if you have a laptop or so

    posted by Papermid on 15:46:01 G5T 11/05/2010 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It's the cheapest adapter with legacy support, others can go for $30. It's plug and play, nothing to mess with.

    Cons: The build quality is good for the price. If I was to drop it, it would hold. But if I were to pry even with my bare hands it feels like it would come apart fairly easily. The device is not secured in the port and because it is so big it bends out if even slight force is applied. It worries me that it may break (the port or the device) if I were to apply too much force

    Other: If you need a PS/2 to USB adapter with legacy support this is the best in this price range. Possibly the best out of all of them.

  • Make "dead" laptop a desktop PC

    posted by Edreams on 22:18:06 G11T 23/11/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: If you got a laptop wite a dead keyboard and trackpad like I got, then this is a great way to change it into a desktop machine. Works 100% perfectly with my KVM!!! Sturdy construction!!! ***LINUX FRIENDLY***

    Cons: This adapter is a little bit wide, you are best off to plug it in last, or into a port that is by it's self.

    Other: This is a great way to save that laptop from the land-fill and make an extra low powered battery backed up linux box!

    posted by HFAscencio on 14:52:41 G9T 28/09/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: If you have a keyboard that you really like and don't want to buy an USB one to substitute it... or if you simply don't want to spend the extra bucks, than this gadget is for you.

    Cons: Built quality is ok for the price. Since the device is a little wide, it might take space from the USB port right next to it.

    Other: Worth it for the price you pay.

    posted by TheLivingOne on 11:36:48 G7T 01/07/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Converts any PS/2 keyboard or mouse or both to USB. Works with any legacy devices and makes them look as generic USB HID keyboard/mouse.
    Works like a charm, PnP.

    Cons: Quite big, may block adjacent USB ports. An extension cable can be used to overcome this issue.
    Multimedia keys don't work for me under Linux because the keyboard is recognized as a generic USB keyboard, not as MS Natural.

    Other: Buy one if you need to connect PS/2 devices to a computer without PS/2 ports or to a USB hub.

  • not working with kvm!

    posted by snoeeg on 04:14:49 G6T 25/06/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It is not too big, looks sturdy and works - it allows to plug PS/2 mouse directly into it.
    It works as USB plug and play - I mean you can plug it easily after the computer is started - something that used to be prblem with regular ps/2

    Cons: It did not work with my Athen kvm switch - and this is what I needed it for. Obviously it does not have it's own controller or it is a weak one.
    It also takes two USB ports if they are close.

    Other: I am still looking for ps2 to usb that works with kvms...

    posted by extremeMIKE on 13:17:53 G2T 08/02/2009 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: instead of having to buy a new keyboard, I can use my old one with my laptop now. It hasn't failed me in a long time and I'm very happy with it.

    Cons: Make sure you have enough room surrounding your USB port because as the picture shows, it sticks out and a little wide

    Other: highly recommend if this is what you are looking for.I don't really know what else to say. Is this 500 words yet
