5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This device allows a PS/2 device to be used on any usb computer or KVM switch. Works right out of the box.

Cons: None

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.

5 out of 5 eggsIt Works!

Pros: After literally trying a box of varieties, this puppy worked with my mish mash 4-way KVM set up with mostly PS/2 connections. My uber expensive ASUS P9X79 Deluxe motherboard decided PS/2 connections for the mouse/keyboard are history; no doubt the wisdom of some 20-year old marketing types. This KVM hangup deal was the one blemish on an otherwise very complicated build. Thanks StarTech for making what we need, not what Marketing wants to sell. Your 67-year old geek friend.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: StarTech and Newegg rule.

5 out of 5 eggsAdapter adapts wonderfully!

Pros: After reading all the reviews of the cheaper adapters, I decided not to waste any time or money on the cheap route. This adapter does exactly what is says. The construction quality appears solid as well.

As a gamer, I was worried about some of the reviews that mentioned dropping keystrokes if long pressing keys. I had *zero* issues with this. So...if you're a gamer with an older keyboard that you love and a newer MoBo that doesn't support PS/2...get this item! You won't be disappointed.

Cons: None noted.

3 out of 5 eggsNot Recognized by BIOS

Pros: It works with my old Keytronic PS2 keyboard, which is why I bought it for use with my new PS2-less computer.
No problems with gaming or repeating keys.

Cons: Not recognized by BIOS, but it may be just my machine.

Other Thoughts: Works fine in both Windows and Linux, however, it's not recognized at the BIOS level, at least not in time to enter BIOS setup or specify a boot option. This is a big downer for me because I'm always reloading OSes and booting off of thumb drives.

5 out of 5 eggsEggsellent

Pros: nice quality adapter, works just like it should.

Cons: none!

Other Thoughts: went thru 2 cheaper models & finally bought this one, save yourself some cash/aggravation and shell out a few extra bucks for quality & dependability.
