I can confirm that too.

I always use PS2 since all my keyboards except from the Filco are ps2 or AT, even the Filco is used with an adapter for the NKRO function.

And sincerelly, I thank that just because having like 5-6 usb cables pluged in is pretty enough

True I haven't seen any lag while typing on my old g15. I guess I like not using a USB port for the keyboard.

I prefer PS2, but my newest mobo (Intel DP55KG) doesnt support it.

It's taking longer for keyboards but like PS/2 mice (Microsoft dropped PS/2 Intellipoint support in 2010) PS/2 keyboards are gonna disappear.

1987 and the introduction of PS/2 was a long time ago.

PS2 all the way. Go back and forth with about a week of use with each (same keyboard, use an adapter) and you will certainly notice the latency difference. Not being able to hot swap is a pain in the ass, but it's certainly worth it for a quick typist once you have experienced the joys of PS2...

I haven't noticed a PS/2 USB latency difference. I call these perceived, nonmeasurable differences The McRip Effect.

But then, like many power mice users, I'm running 1000hz over USB with my Filco Gen 2 keyboard.

I'm not worried about saturating the USB bus or dragging down my Sandy Bridge CPU either. If it can handle mice it can handle keyboards.
