1 out of 5 eggsupdating previous review

Pros: updating previous review

Cons: doesn't work on asus

Other Thoughts: asus replied and notified me that the ps/2 combo port on my mb is made to support either kb or pointing device, not both (ugh!). so i presume that if the motherboard supported it, this may actually work as intended.

StarTech KYC1MF ps/2 Y cable - keyboard works, mouse doesn't

TrippLite P230-001 ps/2 Y cable- mouse works, keyboard doesn't

using with an asus p8h67-m-pro, with a ps/2 combo port. i'm not sure why there's not separate kb/mouse ports.

Other Thoughts: using an ergonomic keyboard with an integrated touchpad. I've been using this style for nearly 15 years, but over the past few years they've been getting very difficult to find, but it's what i use, and i don't want to change; but until i get a work-around, i'll have to forgo using that workstation (obviously not the one that i'm using right now)

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for your review. Please contact Tripp Lite’s Chicago-based Tech Support Team at 773-869-1234 and they would be happy to recommend a cable that will fit your application. Thank you.

1 out of 5 eggsFails to work

Pros: I plugged this unit in to link my PS/2 keyboard and mouse to my Sabertooth X79, which has only one PS/2 port. BIOS did not detect my keyboard. So, in my permutative insight thought that I should try to switch the ports (even though they are labelled for only one kind of input), and I got the very same result: keyboard not detected. This is very peculiar, and if I'm not missing something here, the item doesn't appear to function properly. Or there may be some kind of compatibility issue. It is unclear to me which is the case. Until I figure out a solution (and if I do, I will provide a follow-up review), this is something of an annoyance to waste money on.

Cons: The item itself.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for your review. Please contact Tripp Lite’s Chicago-based Tech Support team at 773-869-1234 and they would be happy to provide trouble shooting assistance linking your keyboard and mouse to the Sabertooth X79. Also, all Tripp Lite cables come with a lifetime warranty and we are happy to replace your cable if necessary. Thank you.
