Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unfortunately this adaptor didn't work for the keyboard or mice that I wanted to use. Having read other reviews, here and elsewhere, I knew it wasn't guaranteed to work. But it was worth a try! Ordered online and collected in-store, then returned to same store (Cribbs Causeway). Maplin staff were very friendly and helpful on both occasions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware - unlikely to work This adapter simply rewires the plug through to the USB port - it does not act as a protocol converter so is unlikely to work if your keyboard was not originally intended to be compatible with USB. An "active" converter is required in most cases (as I have found to my cost)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Limited use I wanted to connect an older keyboard to my newer laptop. The old keyboard wasn't recognised via this adaptor. Maybe a compatibility issue between components, and not a fault with the adaptor.

I note other much cheaper products which will not work with old PS/2 keyboards and mice. Will this work with older (pre-usb) keyboards and mice?

Asked by: Grrr
Yes this should be fine however we can not gaurntee every PS/2 item will work.

Someone asked how this product differed from the L13BT model. The answer given is 'There are No mounted points on this panel' so would only be suitable with corner type mounts. QUESTION: What are 'mounted points' and 'corner type mounts' ?
