    Looking at this adapter compared to Part 6854 and Part 2083 the build specs are 99% the same. The cords are the same, the module in the middle of the cords looks the same, and the keyboard and mouse plugs are the same. There is a difference in the USB connectors (very slight molding changes) but overall these all three look identical. The difference lies within the performance of the adapter itself. This adapter worked on all OSX installations I tried it on (Leopard 10.5, Snow Leopard 10.6, and Lion 10.7). I tested these with the Server versions but the client installers should perform the same. There is one other Monoprice adapter which I tried (Part 173) that performed the same but had a larger converter module in the middle of the cable and was $1 more per adapter. For one machine its not a big deal, for many servers that adds up quick. Overall out of all 4 Monoprice adapters I bought this was the one I will be buying a lot more of and wanted to save you some time if you are scratching your head on which adapter to buy, spend the $3.60 and buy this adapter.

    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.

    Cheap and works perfectly
    I love the feel of the old genuine IBM keyboards from 10+ years ago. Problem is they only have a PS2 connector. So I bought this adapter and it works perfectly on all keys and modes (num lock, caps lock, etc.). I have not tried using the PS2 mouse port, since I have a USB mouse.

    PROS: Works exactly as promised on Lenovo W520 laptop.
    Great price!

    CONS: None

    Lenovo T510 Win 7 64-bit
    Windows 7 64-bit on a Lenovo T510 is now working with an old IBM Model M from 1984. Another adapter, 2083 or BT-1000 didn't work at all.

    PROS: Windows installed the driver and it just works

    CONS: none

    Products Works, BUT...
    Good product in a pinch or for a server kiosk that will NOT have to handle repeated keystrokes. I think this is more an issue with the CHIPSET used, and not the product itself, which is decently built, and in NO way the same as some cheap $2 eBay hunk of fail.

    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.

    Perfect for using with PS/2 KVM
    Many of the new PCs I build are finally doing away with PS/2 ports rendering my 2x 8-port KVMs useless. When looking at DVI/USB KVMs, they are rather pricey and would also need new cables. The USB PS/2 adapter has worked without issue with my existing KVMs giving them a nice renewed lease on usability. I am using Windows 7.

    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!

    Best Price
    Looked all over for one of these locally. Best Buy, Radio Shack, Office Max. Best price I could find was $15, but most were over 20. I was thrilled to find it here for a fraction of that, shipping included. Thank you!

    Great
    This USB to PS/2 converter was a life saver for me. I was able to easily use my older keyboards and mice with this device, saving me the cost of a new set. The installation was simple. All I had to to was plug it in and it worked for perfectly me. My PS/2 mice and keyboards had plug and play compatibility when used with this device. I used this in conjunction with a KVM (Product ID: 219) with no issues. As of now, I have had the product for about a month and have had no issues. It is used in a technical productions booth, with heavy usage.

    USB to Dual PS/2 Adapter 2274
    Monoprice USB to Dual PS/2 Adapter 2274: Prior to this I couldn't find a PS/2 to USB adapter that would work with the ton of PS/2 keyboards and PS/2 mouses that we have at work. Most of our newer Windows computer systems are USB only so I needed to find a workable adapter. A also still use some IOGear 2-channel PS/2 based KVM switches and this adapter worked where other cheaper ones did not. My search is over. It also works as a single PS/2 to USB adapter. I can highly recommend this specific adapter.

    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.

    Works perfectly
    Like other reviewers, I bought this to connect an old IBM Model M keyboard to a modern PC, and this adapter works perfectly, no problems, no drivers, no fiddling with anything.

    PROS: Just Works.

    CONS: None.

    what is the transfer speed for this cable? Need at least 480mbps PRODUCT 2274
    A shopper on Dec 19, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: This is usually a USB 1.1 device (speed set to 12 Mbits/sec) PS2 Keyboards and mice operate at below this speed. Remember that USB 3.0, USB 2.0, USB 2.1 ports are backwards compatible with USB 1.1. It you are plugging this device into a USB 3, 2.1 or 2.0 port, the port will downshift to the slower speed to support this device.
    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.
