Tags: Playstation USB Keyboards Components Last response: May 30, 2003 2:46 PM in Components Share ghowthoo May 30, 2003 8:42:26 AM Hi, Whats better to use if my keyboard has the ability to use PS2 and USB ports? I am assuming USB although I have come to like the little PS2 hole =D.. If its USB should I use 1.1 or 2.0?

Personally, I would use the PS2 port and save the USB ports for other USB devices. ghowthoo May 30, 2003 9:33:10 AM ahh okay gotcha, makes sense.. thanks! Can't find your answer ? Ask !
