USB to PS/2 Dual PS2 Converter Adapter
The USB to PS2 Converter is the best solution for those who want to use legacy PS2 devices on new USB systems. It allows you to connect a PS2 mouse and keyboard through the USB port on any computer. Now you can enjoy using your keyboard and mouse connected to the USB-PS/2 adapter as an USB compatible device.
PROS: Works well in OSX Server 10.5 / 10.6 / 10.7. Works well in CentOS 5.6.
CONS: None, its the best USB to PS2 adapter sold by Monoprice.
PROS: Works exactly as promised on Lenovo W520 laptop.
PROS: Windows installed the driver and it just works
PROS: Works with any keyboard, including a Model M
CONS: Does NOT support held-down keys, does not like to handle repeat functions.. I.E: if you game with it, and you're holding W, it will "drop" the keystroke after a certain amount of time.
PROS: - Adds PS/2 KB+Mose to newer PCs
- Can hot-plug PS/2 KB+Mouse no more reboots!
CONS: Non so far
I purchased two of these adapters in April 2012, and just dropped in to see if they're still available. I note you could not get yours to work with a KVM switch, and just wanted to say that mine have been working fine with my KVM switch since I got them. I regret your configuration didn't work, but wanted to let others know that it might work for them. In my opinion, for such a low cost item, if you need one it's worth the chance!
PROS: Works well with PS/2 keyboards and PS/2 mouses.
Works well with IOGear 2 channel PS/2 based KVM switches.
Works well as a single PS/2 to USB 2 adapter.
CONS: None so far.
PROS: Just Works.
If you are installing Windows 7, 8, 10, the USB 3.0 driver isn't installed until the OS is fully installed. You won't be able to use the keyboard/mouse, unless you use a USB 2.0 port. The issue isn't this converter, rather it is Windows not supporting USB 3.0, until Windows is fully installed.
I have successfully used this in many USB 2.0 ports.
