Was having an issue after doing our year-end office cleanup. We figured "who the heck uses PS/2 anymore? i haven't in forever"
Well... one of our older backup servers failed a few days ago and it refused to enable USB support in the BIOS so I couldn't put the device into recovery mode. Ended up being stuck in an endless boot-loop.
Figured PS/2 is normally powered into BIOS so I purchased one of these adapters. Despite warning from other people saying it may not work, it definitely worked on the main intent (the backup server) and on a really old laptop and another PC that happened to have PS/2 ports I wanted to test on. All three worked fine but all i cared about was getting my backup server running.
worked great! $5 saved sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much potential loss and time wasted.
Plastic mold is a little off so it wasn't built the best, but the connectors themselves are solid and snug. no loose stuff here.
