PS/2 Keyboard/Mouse to USB Converter Adapter, Black
Use your legacy PS/2 keyboards and mice with modern USB, equipped systems using this PS/2 Keyboard/Mouse to USB Converter Adapter from Monoprice!
This adapter cable allows you to connect a PS/2 keyboard and/or PS/2 mouse to any USB equipped PC. This can be particularly useful if you have a specialty keyboard or mouse device and a PC without PS/2 ports. It is also useful in a KVM (keyboard/video/mouse) extender situation, allowing PS/2 keyboards/mice to be used with USB KVMs.
No software or special drivers are required. Just plug it in and it works!
Questions and Answers
See? All you needed to know. That said: it was easy to open the package, installed straightaway as a USB HID (so no additional drivers required), and has proven flawless in operation. Highly recommended.
PROS: Works with IBM Model M - all of them including M13
Works with lesser keyboards too, but who cares?
Works with any system you throw it at, no drivers needed
Holy crap look at that price!
CONS: Could do with a stronger flex boot on the USB side I suppose
On some of the adapters in the batch I ordered I found plastic flashing in the molding of the PS/2 connectors. It was nothing that would block the connection, but it wasn't the cleanest molding I am used to seeing on precision ports.
I should also note that these adapters do have distinct keyboard and mouse molded marks, not just the color coding, on the PS/2 cable connectors. While this is welcome, it was not clear based on the pictures available. There are brands out there that do not have such molded marks.
PROS: Works with Belkin KVM switch
CONS: Slight imperfections in PS/2 port moldings (no functional issues)
PROS: It serves its intended purpose
