Addendum: Use active USB-to-PS/2 adapter for USB-only device
Pros: This is a followup to my other review regarding users thinking that a passive rewiring adapater will convert their USB-only device into supporting PS/2.
Cons: The price of active USB-to-PS/2 adapters needed to get USB-only devices to support PS/2 ports is quite high.
Other Thoughts: For those trying to use a passive USB-to-PS/2 adapter with a USB-only designed device, see:

The USB device *must* support PS/2 for this to work
Pros: This works *if* you use it as advertised: as a *replacement* adapter for a mouse that supports *both* USB and PS/2 connections. It won't magically convert a USB-only mouse to support a PS/2 port. This is a REPLACEMENT adapter for the one that originally came bundled with the USB+PS/2 mouse.
Cons: This makes the connection stick out quite a ways out behind the computer case: from PS/2 port, adapter length, and length of connector end of mouse cable and cable bend. Twould be nice if they made one with a shorty cable between the female USB connector and the PS/2 male connector. Pushing your case towards the wall could be you damage the PS/2 port on your mobo as the adapter gets smacked against the wall.
Other Thoughts: USB-only keyboards won't work with this adapter. They weren't designed to support PS/2. This is a REPLACEMENT adapter if you lose the one that comes with a USB+PS/2 keyboard.

Pros: Both ends fit their respective male/female counterpart; one egg for that.
Cons: Couldn't get it to work as a spot to plug in my USB mouse; even checked that PS/2 was enabled in BIOS. Wouldn't work as a general USB port either although I don't know if it's supposed to be capable of that. Useless.
Other Thoughts: Bought it directly from StarTech so Newegg's off the hook there, but exact same product either way.
