This review is from: 2 pcs New Mini Slim USB 2.0 A Male to 2Port PS/2 PS2 Mouse Keyboard Adapter Dongle
Pros: It is small, and NewEgg did refund my money after making me follow up with the sellers support e-mail.
Cons: It is recognized as a USB device on all Windows computers I tried (4 of them), but no PS/2 Keyboard or Mouse I have would work on any of the computers I have. Received 2, and both behaved identically
Other Thoughts: I wish there had been reviews before I ordered. Not boding well for NewEgg's third party sellers....READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It is very clean, works well, not excessively loud. Mine arrived with a clean Lenovo keyboard (but not apparently new), and a cheap iMicro optical mouse that appears brand new. As a USFF computer it is quite compact. COA for Windows 7 Home Premium appears legitimate (have not yet activated mine). Lenovo BIOS and general hardware quality are pretty solid. Came with a DVD multi-player optical drive. Has 8 USB 2.0 ports (2 in the front, 6 in the back). It has an E8400 CPU.
Cons: It is not 'as pictured'. The picture shows a SFF M58P - like the other 3 M58's I have purchased from NewEgg, and expected with this one. The drawbacks for me are So-Dimm memory instead of Dimm, only 2 memory slots, an external 'compatibie' power supply, no e-SATA port on the back of the computer, and the only internal slot is a low profile PCI slot. No PCI-e 1x or 16x as I have come to expect with the SFF form computers.
Other Thoughts: NewEgg needs to improve their care in the descriptions for these 3rd party refurb computers. The picture should match what they are shipping, or there should not be a photo in the listing. The one I received came labeled as a Certified nUsed Computer, but there was NO warranty or support information inside the packaging. The dilemma for me is I purchased this as a backup for the other 3 Lenovo's I purchased - all of which came as SFF forms which matched their photos and descriptions. This one showed USFF in the description, but the picture was clearly a SFF matching the other 3. So I don't have a power supply, CPU cooler or memory that I could use to keep the other 3 running. The drives (3.5 HD and 5.25 half height optical) would be swappable. And I suspect if i moved a 3.5 HD from one of the SFF computers to this USFF computer, it would boot up cleanly (although would probably need to be re-activated).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: 2 pcs USB A Male to PS2 PS/2 Female Mouse Keyboard Converter Cable Adapter PC Laptop
Pros: Arrived quickly and both worked properly. Definitely inexpensive.
Cons: Quality of plastic seems pretty low - the wires coming out of the little box in the middle don't appear very secure, no strain relief and they twist easily. The connectors for the PS/2 keyboard/mouse seem a little loose, but they worked for me!READ FULL REVIEW
