5 out of 5 eggsit works

Pros: Not much to say. It works. I've used it to connect old IBM Model M keyboards (great tactile feel, with some unique configurations) to Thinkpad docks. One keyboard even has an integrated trackpoint - I hooked up the PS/2 "mouse" output to the Instel adapter and that works as well.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Comes 2 to a package. The price is certainly right.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent; exactly as needed and inexpensive

Pros: - It works.
- I didn't even notice (when I bought it) that it includes 2 as the price seemed fair enough, for my needs, for one. I actually thought it was a mistake (either I accidentally ordered two or that Newegg made a mistake; they were in the same package but each in its own small bag). I only need one but I like having spares of things (like all the other cable types I have).
- What else is there? It is an adapter; it either works or it doesn't and it does (admittedly I only tested one but...)

Cons: No cons but I admit I wish it was only keyboard (seeing as how the mouse portion is dangling loose). I suspect that this is actually a PRO for most people but I don't consider it a CON either (it is just something I personally don't need and feature rich is generally a good thing, I think. I'm just picky). But it works and that is what I needed. As noted above, an adapter either works or it doesn't and this one does so no complaints.

Other Thoughts: Some time last week I was at my local server (no graphical user interface as no server needs a GUI and I heavily use the command line and very efficiently anyway), typing a command (after successfully typing a command moments before) and in the middle of it the input stopped (remotely sending output to the console showed up, although I didn't check that instantly). I suspected it was not the keyboard but instead that the keyboard ps/2 port died (the first time I had experienced or heard of that, but it is in fact the case). Checking another ps/2 keyboard confirmed that the keyboard was not it (unless I "stupidly" - and quite possibly, but not this time - kept a dead keyboard*). The next day (it was a long week) I decided to confirm my suspicion for sure: my USB version of the old IBM Model-M keyboard (made by the corporation that has rights to it) worked fine. So I knew all I needed was a ps/2 to usb adapter or a usb keyboard (and I'm very picky with keyboards; no windows key, no multimedia keys and buckling spring) and this was far less expensive.

*I still have a very dead ~528MB (whatever that old barrier was; cannot truthfully recall) hard drive and I still have a very dead ~2.5GB drive, both of which have collected dust for more years than the teens of today. I won't get rid of them because of the historical and sentimental values (besides, they were very expensive back then, compared to today's hard drives!). Similar is I tend to keep other computer hardware even if it is long dead or no longer useful to me. None of this matters for anything other than the issue which is: my PS/2 keyboard port died and it was not the keyboard (and hence my needing to rule out dead keyboards).

5 out of 5 eggsPS/2 to USB adapter works well

Pros: The Insten dual PS/2 to USB adapter worked perfectly. I have two computers, one running XP at 1.8GHz the other a new computer running Windows 7 at 3.8GHz. The XP took a few moments to think about it when the USB end was first plugged in then installed the adapter without problem - mouse and old ergonomic MS keyboard worked perfectly. The Windows 7 OS installation was nearly instantaneous (that faster CPU, no doubt) with the same result.

Cons: Can't think of any at the moment.
