I have this box and it works well on almost all of our IBM's and clones (Data
Generals).  It doesn't work on our IBM 486 Ultimedia with a built in CD
ROM drive, when the Averkey software is loaded into RAM, the screen
starts to flip on the monitor and on the large screen.  It only happens
with this one machine, all others work fine.  I think it cost app. $250.00.
