I've got a few Lantronix Spiders and I love them; however, I would opt 
to get the external power adapter instead of just relying on the unit 
drawing power from the computer it's connected to.

Also, there is a PS2 + USB model available that I'd recommend getting if 
you have any older gear which doesn't support USB keyboards while in the 

I think they go for around $260 + another $20 or so for the external 
power adapter.
