5 out of 5 eggsWorks but no NKRO

Pros: Works

Cons: Read below

Other Thoughts: Not going to be a moron here and write that it's the adapters fault it doesn't have No-Key Rollover Support, the adapter is doing it's job converting the PS2 to USB, but if you want Full NKRO for gaming you have to have straight PS2 to PS2. I will hold down W and press D and 1 second later if I'm still holding W it will clear its "Stack" and I will stop moving completely in a game. This makes playing WoW Impossible, so I bit the bullet and bought a new mechanical keyboard. Why my brother's MSI Mobo comes with PS2.. and my $250 Sabertooth z87 doesn't is beyond me, but that's a different story. Long live PS2, the superior keyboard connection :(

5 out of 5 eggsDoes what it is supposed to

Pros: Converts an old mouse and keyboard to usb for newer systems and laptops.
Didn't arrive DOA and was cheap.

Cons: Could be longer?

Other Thoughts: Mostly just glad this wasnt DOA. I knew what it was and what it did and that was my only major concern was having to RMA or be out a few bucks due to cheap manufacturing.
Never got a dud from Rosewill to this day and I plan to the streak going.

1 out of 5 eggsNo good to me

Pros: No way to tell.

Cons: Supermicro X9DR3-F motherboard with newest BIOS does not see the keyboard through this part. Linux 3.10.7 does not see the part.

The Linux error message is: Cannot enable port 2. Maybe the USB cable is bad.

Inserting after boot sometimes

Other Thoughts: The USB ID says this is an ATEN part. Never had any luck with ATEN products. First Rosewill part I've ever had issues with.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks with most mice

Pros: Convenient and easy to use. Turned my desktop setup into an easy docking station for laptops.

Cons: Not compatible with all the infinitely many mice out there, which would probably be impossible anyway. The mouse I was using was not compatible, but most of the others that I had were, so it wasn't a big deal.

Using a USB mouse with a PS2 adapter is a little iffy.

Other Thoughts: It would be nice if these sorts of adapters has a USB port as well for those of us (all of us?) who use USB mice. Somehow we need to implant this idea in the manufacturers minds.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Does what it's supposed to do.
Mouse and keyboard respond how they should, no delays in keystrokes or mouse movements even after waking up the computer.

Cons: It's white -_-

Other Thoughts: I bought this for an old laptop that someone wanted to use just as a desktop pc. Allowed the laptop to use legacy mice and keyboards. "Why buy something new if the old stuff still works."

4 out of 5 eggsNot too bad

Pros: Works ok for a keyboard or mouse.

Cons: Tends to have a slight bit of lag when typing, or moving the mouse. Also when holding down keys for gaming they tend to depress themselves.

Other Thoughts: Overall a great tool if you're not a gamer.

1 out of 5 eggsDid not work on some systems

Pros: Nice concept

Cons: It did not work through a KVM hooked up to a late model 64 bit Win7, or legacy WinXP hosts. Not tested with direct connections to either hosts, so the problem could have been in the KVM.
But both systems worked through the KVM setup with a DIFFERENT model adapter.
