Yeah, I did the spec your own and can't figure out why the difference in price either when nothing is different but the color. I'd rather have the black so it wouldn't get filthy looking. I'm afraid...

That does help. Thanks. I figured it should work since it's a usb plugin device but wasn't sure. I figured someone was either using it or had tried it and could say yes it works or no it doesn't.
