Works with MacOS X but...
I bought this to put in my mac. Per the product description and the manufacturer's website, it is mac compatible, and the drivers are included with 10.7. However, either the drivers or getty confuse one port for the other at boot time, so the physical ports get mapped to the opposite logical port names. This isn't helpful. It works, and having rs232 ports and a parallel port on my mac are a good thing, but the logical port swapping limits its usefulness.
