Pros: This device allows a PS/2 device to be used on any usb computer or KVM switch. Works right out of the box.
Other Thoughts: If you have an old PS/2 keyboard or mouse, you can use this device on any computer with usb ports. The passive PS/2 to USB converters sometimes will not work. On my Trendnet TK-209K KVM switch I can use either a keyboard or the mouse but not both. This is not a problem because I use a wireless USB mouse.

Pros: I came fast. I mean really fast. Said 5-10 days and it took 4 from date ordered.
Other Thoughts: Bought it for a PC I was building from old parts and MB had no ps2 connections. Borrowed a usb kbd to test and found it won't take win7. No drivers, it's that old of a board. So I'll never get around to using it. I'll hold it in my spares.

Pros: I waited for a while to write this just to make sure it didn't stop working, but it worked perfectly from the time I plugged it in & hasn't give me any problems since. It's truly plug 'n play. I just shut my system down, plugged this gizmo into the ps/2 mouse & keyboard connections & plugged the other end into the USB port of my PC. Very obvious & easy. I should also say that I'm using this with an older KVM 4 way switch & it STILL works perfectly. I'm using this on a Windows 7 Pro 64-bit system. I tried using a few other converts of the same type that I bought on Beay for cheap. Some didn't work at all, while others worked for a while, but then stopped working all together or when I switched away from this PC to another one on the KVM, then came back to this one, I had to unplug the mouse connector & plug it back in to make the mouse start working again. I also have no trouble getting into the BIOS before the system boots up, something that sometimes happened with the cheap ones. Windows reads this port right away & loaded the driver the first time & that was that. I highly recommend this product. I've used many others that didn't work, but this one does.
Cons: About the only thing bad thing I can say about this is that it has that crazy plastic packaging that MANY items have today, that takes a can opener, flame thrower or butcher knife to get into. OK. A good pair of scissors will easily do the trick & too be honest, it's not as bad as some of them. This one has a nice easy open space at the the top that can be cut with the scissors.
As you can probably tell, I have a personal problem with that type of packaging. Too may companies use it because it IS somewhat inexpensive, it's protective & displays their product well. It's just hard to get into without cutting your hands up...
Other Thoughts: I tried about 5 or 6 other ones of these same types of converts. Many were cheaper, but none worked as well as this one does. If I need one for another computer, I WILL buy another one of these. I may just do it for another PC that's giving me fits. Hmm. That's why I hate writing these, they often lead me to buying more stuff...
