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.
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.
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.
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.
