Picked this up today at the local Goodwill.

Seems to work fine. Missing 2 of the 4 audio cable sets but otherwise in good order. They are nothing really than color coded aux cables though. As I pretty much just mess with small server stuff the audio is kind of irrelevant to me. Just in a few hours this thing has proved invaluable. Love it. Highly recommend if you haven't got one. I keep it on my desk > my 2nd monitor. It's as simple as just plugging in a computer to it and hitting the proper button. Switches pretty quick. No need for multiple keyboards and mice.

I have a KVM switch from the old days that has 4 ports and a rotary type switch to switch between the boxes and it's cool.

I found it at a garage sale brand new and unopened with all the necessary cables for a $5.00 bill so I grabbed it.

I had to buy some PS2 to USB adapters.

Yeah KVM switches are very useful.
