1 out of 5 eggsdoa

Pros: At least it was inexpensive.

Cons: Didn't work at all. Windows didn't recognize the unit. Tried every usb port in three computers. Tossed it out after a couple of wasted hours. I'm much to chill to really care, but I can see some people going crazy with this junk.

Other Thoughts: I wasn't expecting much, and wasn't disappointed.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Your computer will not see this adapter because it is just an extension of your USB port.

Please give us a call and we will gladly walk you through the setup process.

You may also try the following before calling us:

Turn off PC. Once you have the adapter installed and USB cable also connected, plug in the PS/2 mouse and keyboard.

Reboot the system, and see if your system will pickup the keyboard and mouse.

We apologize for any issues that you are having. As you may know we are more than happy to provide our customers with a hassle free exchange when a product is defective.

Our technical support team is available to help 9am-5pm M-F. Feel free to contact us during those business hours at support@sybausa.com

SYBA offers an on-line RMA form, the user can easily fill out the form and submit it for a quick RMA return and exchange. It is SYBA's policy to answer all customer inquiries within 24 hours (M-F)

Thank you for purchasing one of our products, and for leaving us your valuable feedback. We value all positive and negative feedback.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't do it.

Pros: Obviously cheap to buy. It does work.

Cons: Bracket is far too weak. Most motherboards require a non-USB connection for keyboard access to the BIOS, so it you use this, you will not be able to access the BIOS unless you unplug the keyboard and use the motherboard connection directly. If you try to plug in either mouse or keyboard, the bracket will bend badly. You would have to take off the side panel and hold the bracket from inside the case to plug in either mouse or keyboard.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We are sorry to hear that you were unable to access your BIOS using our PS2/USB adapter. Some motherboards, usually older ones will not allow this. We would advise you contacting us prior to making any future purchases to make sure you get a product that meets your needs. As for your bracket issue, our PCI brackets are manufactured to meet thickness and flexibility standards. However, from what you are describing, you may have not mounted / secured the bracket correctly, or you used excessive force while plugging devices to it.

We are more than willing to provide all of our customers with prompt exchanges whenever a product or its components become defective.

SYBA offers an on-line RMA form, the user can easily fill out the form and submit it for a quick RMA return and exchange. It is SYBA's policy to answer all customer inquiries within 24 hours (M-F)

4 out of 5 eggsGot new PC working with old KVM

Pros: Got my PS2 mouse and keyboard working through an old Cybex SwitchView 8-port KVM (PS2 ports only) connected to a Systemax PC that has only one PS2 port for mouse OR keyboard.

After trying many combos of PS2-to-USB adapters, USB-to-PS2 Y-cables, PS2-keyboards with USB mouses and vice versa, this device finally allowed me to use my new PC through my old KVM. It ended weeks of frustration.

Cons: The metal bracket is a bit thin and flimsy. Item seems kind of pricy for what it is. But it did what I needed, and I don't plug/unplug the KVM cables into this repeatedly.

Only compatibility issue so far was in MSI motherboard BIOS screens, which are GUI-based: mouse worked only in the vertical plane, up-and-down only. But putting a GUI on the BIOS is asking for trouble, IMHO. Keyboard worked fine in the BIOS, so this was not a problem at all.

Other Thoughts: Now that I have things working with this card, I wonder if the SYBA Combo Card Model SD-NECPS-2U2PS2 would have worked just as well AND given me two more USB ports at a lower price. Might have to buy a new PC to find out.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This is another piece I purchased for a Hackintosh project. Macs require USB mice and keyboards but the KVM my Hackintosh is connected to only offers PS/2 ports. I could have used an external adapter, but this unit cleans things up a nicely. Both keyboard and mouse work perfectly.

Cons: As someone else mentioned the bracket is a little flimsy. If either you mouse or keyboard connectors are a very tight fit the bracket WILL bend as you push them in. The cable provided works, but you need a little technical knowledge to get it hooked up since the mother board side of the cable has only 4 pins. The instructions are mostly adequate to get it hooked up, but could still be confusing for non-techies.

Other Thoughts: For what it is, it's a little expensive at $19. But it works and it looks clean so I'm happy.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's OK

Pros: Provides P/S2 functionality

Works with Windows and Linux

Cons: The bracket is flimsy, and will bend back as you plug a device in. It will come back to it's original shape though. This is because the metal on the edges of the ports are thin, but no manufacturer could do anything about that.

The USB port isn't marked in anyway, so its' confusing putting the header in.

Other Thoughts: read pros/cons

1 out of 5 eggsUnsusable with a KVM Switch

Pros: I was very happy using this with a directly connected keyboard and mouse. The internal pin header is very usful so you don't have to route a cable out of the case, into a USB port on the back. Like most cheap usb devices, they use a USB Host port instead of a USB device port. So you need a male to male usb cable if you want to use this with external USB ports.

Cons: Does not work with (syba) ConnectLAND KVM switch.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817801009
The keyboard with flash all Caps/Scroll/Num Lock lights. Non functional with this KVM.


This is the last product I will buy from this company.

Other Thoughts: Support from this company is dismal, I had to beg and plead with them to RMA this piece of c@ap. Once they finally offered and RMA, the newly exchanged item still refuses to work WITH THEIR OWN KVM switch!!. Terrible support, for awful products. DO NO BUY FROM THIS MANUFACTURER.


Money wasted. My wife bought this as gift for my "legacy Free" Dell . Last SYBA products I will ever buy. You would think their products are compatible. thanks for nothing.
Ext USB jack is a HOST port, not a Type B Device port. You must use a Type A to Type A cable. Found at most DollarTree stores as (an incorrectly marked cross-over) USB Cable.

Garbage Garbage Garbage. Also, I had to pay to ship this thing to for the RMA.
I i could give zero stars, i would have.!

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great with my KVM

Pros: Provides a slot-free way to add a pair of PS2 ports to your computer. The big win here is that it works with my ancient Avocent KVM. Many other PS2-USB adapters won't work with this KVM, but this one does! I got one for my Asus P8P67 WS Revolution motherboard and it works great!

Cons: The metal backplate for this is a little flimsy. Which means plugging the cables in might be a small hassle. The plate bends inward a bit and that can keep some PS2 cables from getting a proper full seat into the socket. Not a show-stopper though.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks - with some tweaks...

Pros: I got it to work after some tweaking and now I can continue to use my 12 yr old Cirque GlidePoint Wave keyboard with touchpad - I don't care for using a mouse.

Cons: The sockets are a little loose and the bracket is kinda flimsy - I had to bend the bottom of it a little to brace it against the edge of the motherboard and hold it against the backplane of my case. Also, on my case, the openings aren't quite wide enough for the box around the connector ports so the bracket is slightly recessed and I had to trim some material from my mouse jack to get it in far enough for a solid connection. One other thing that looks like it may be a problem once I get my video card (using onboard graphics for now) is that the four pin connector sticks out at a right angle from the card and may cause an interference issue with the back of my video card once installed. Being that I'm using a MicroATX setup my options for placement are limited and the PCIe 1x slot is my best choice. I could get an adapter and use the type A port on the card, though. It is mounted in a more sensible direction.

Other Thoughts: I thought I had a dud when I first tried this thing. Everything was connected and the drivers seemed to load, but I was getting nothing from either device. Before I tossed it in my junk box I decided to connect it to a front panel USB port and play around and it loaded all the drivers and worked! I figured out that the PS/2 plugs weren't going all the way in with it mounted on the backplane of my case (see above).

FYI, this adapter won't work for entering BIOS with a keyboard, but my new motherboard (and many others) at least has one PS/2 port so I use that one for the keyboard and the adapter to connect my touchpad/mouse. It starts working once the OS loads.

Now everything is working fine and I haven't noticed a bit of lag with the touchpad/mouse. I'm happy!
