|It works Works well, it uses your scroll lock function to switch between set ups. Works with Macs too. The audio input is also nice.|

|KVM Switch It works just like advertised. Easy set up, and works great. Unhappy I ordered this product because of the reviews it got here and at other sites. I got a used one to save a few pennies (half-off actually).|
