  • The Best PS/2 to USB Adapter I have used.

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Works very well with all PS/2 devices I have tested it with (IBM Model M, Genius NetMouse, Synaptics Trackpad, etc.)
    Much smaller than most other adaptors and very solidly built. Strain relief on the PS/2 connector is good quality. Nice little blue power LED.
    Appears as a pair of standard USB Input Devices - no drivers required on modern OSes.
    Works perfectly with UK keyboard layouts unlike most cheap adaptors.

    Cons:

    A little bit wonky - PS/2 sockets are off center and one wire is slightly longer than the other, but neither of these are a real problem - it just looks a bit odd.
    No strain relief at all on the USB connector.

    OtherThoughts:

    Requests the largest amount of power available from the USB port (usually 400 or 500 ma) meaning that high current PS/2 devices (Model M, Barcode Scanner) work properly.
    The colours of the PS/2 ports are irrelevant - any device will work in either port. This means that two keyboards or two mice can be plugged in with one adaptor.
    No input lag like some cheap adaptors.

    Bottomline:

    Best PS/2 to USB adaptor on DX. Small, works very well, no major issues. This entire review was typed out on a Model M connected to the adaptor.
