    - It works really well on my Trust keyboard. - Even special function keys still work (only one character won't type for me). - It's cheaper than buying a new keyboard / mouse! - Only 1 usb port needed for mouse and keyboard! - Works well on Windows XP, Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10 - It's big, you'll need some room to plug it in. - No other real cons I ...

    It just works. My laptop has only 3 usb ports, this device makes is possible to plug mouse and keyboard in just one, without using a hub. Its a bit bulky, my usb ports are above eachother, so it isn't a real problem. It might be when your ports are side by side. You can't use the multi media keys on your ps2 keyboard. Thats too bad, but I was aware ... Read more

    It is a little too big, it is sticking out a little too much. looks sturdy and works - it allows to plug PS/2 mouse directly into it. It works as USB plug and play - I mean you can plug it easily after the computer is started - something that used to be prblem with regular ps/2 It does work with my wii, but not all the time. Sometimes it works sometimes ... Read more

    It's the cheapest adapter with legacy support, others can go for $30. It's plug and play, nothing to mess with. The build quality is good for the price. If I was to drop it, it would hold. But if I were to pry even with my bare hands it feels like it would come apart fairly easily. The device is not secured in the port and because it is so big it bends ... Read more

    If you got a laptop wite a dead keyboard and trackpad like I got, then this is a great way to change it into a desktop machine. Works 100% perfectly with my KVM!!! Sturdy construction!!! ***LINUX FRIENDLY*** This adapter is a little bit wide, you are best off to plug it in last, or into a port that is by it's self. I wonder how many laptops could be ...

    If you have a keyboard that you really like and don't want to buy an USB one to substitute it... or if you simply don't want to spend the extra bucks, than this gadget is for you. Built quality is ok for the price. Since the device is a little wide, it might take space from the USB port right next to it. No other thoughts. It works fine with my keyboard ... Read more

    Converts any PS/2 keyboard or mouse or both to USB. Works with any legacy devices and makes them look as generic USB HID keyboard/mouse. Works like a charm, PnP. Quite big, may block adjacent USB ports. An extension cable can be used to overcome this issue. Multimedia keys don't work for me under Linux because the keyboard is recognized as a generic ...

It works as USB plug and play - I mean you can plug it easily after the computer is started - something that used to be prblem with regular ps/2 It did not work with my Athen kvm switch - and this is what I needed it for. Obviously it does not have it's own controller ... Read more

    Was packed in a molded plastic and looked exactly the same as if bought from your local store, i.e. not cheap. Does what it is supposed to. I used it to connect an external keyboard and mouse to the docking station of my laptop. The dock has only USB outputs, no PS/2. When the laptop goes on sleep mode, after awaking it cannot find the keyboard (only ... Read more
