    EuroTech Keyboard

    I would love to use this keyboard with my computer. It is solid, good response and they don't make them like this any more. It is a PS2 and I have an adapter on it. However, I have been told that it drains power from the newer PC's and can cause problems. Anyone have info on this? Thanks for your help.

    Libbie,

    I don't see why this keyboard should be any problem just because it's a PS2. I think it's made by Keytronics and I've never heard any bad news about their products.

    Go ahead and use it....enjoy. <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15>

    Unless you are talking about heavy on the road use for a laptop, it seems unlikely that your Keyboard would cause a significant problem. If necessary, you should think of a spare battery. HTH

    I'm going with the flow here. Plug it in, and if you have no problems, great! You have no substantive proof that it will do anything to the computer; if other owners had problems perhaps it was the PS/2 port on their computers that was poorly designed?

    Go for broke!
