I’m sure that within a few months CalDigit will probably have the driver sorted out. Note however that this could be a flawed design of the MacBook. Only negative comment, I had to email CalDigit support for the most current drivers. With new USB 3. All components, from the card to the cable, have been tested using a special oscilloscope to ensure optimum performance.

I was able to transfer 10GB in less than 3 minutes. That is the good. If that wasn’t enough, the driver screwed up my system, I have another Expresscard that always worked without trouble, after uninstalling the Caldigit driver my other card wouldn’t been recognized by the system and I have to go online to look for the original driver, a huge time waster.

The card is connected to a Drobo-S and when it is working correctly, it is amazing how fast files transfer.
I used the Lexar USB 3. Ideal for fast storage, the USB 3.
The thing is, there’s still one issue – when I eject the drives and take out the card, the driver seems to go into a kind of loop – the system will not see the drives again if I re-insert the card, and if the computer is put to sleep it will not wake up. Caldigit was helpful but I alone solved the issue. The card was never able to mantain the drive connected to the computer for more than a couple minutes at a time, I tried through usb hubs, directly to the computer and with the extra power cables connected to both the card and the drive.
Now for the bad. The connection is there but the interface seems to have difficulty negotiating the path on a regular basis.
With new USB 3. Update Unrecognized Zip Code. The card is exactly what I expected. Since I have a Macbook Pro I was concerned about these posts, and in my phone call just now, I was assured by CalDigit that the issue had been addressed and the problem fixed. Currently I reboot the computer every time I eject the external drives. Using bridge in Photoshop CS5 is lightning fast. Pops out of the slot far too easily.
In combination with the Seagate GoFlex Pro pocket drives we have made this our preferred medium for media transfer between our department and our vendors. While Windows users have had access to USB 3.

In short, a mistake. Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Does what it says I use this card to make fast backups of my drives. Rated 4 out of 5 by Tommy from Caldigit is ahead of Apple!
I will be returning it for refund. All components, from the card to the cable, have been tested using a special oscilloscope to ensure optimum performance. No Longer Available Update Location close. Note however that this could be a flawed design of the MacBook. Bottom line, so far, able to immediately speak to a human being when I called with a question, which for me is a big plus. Rebooting my mac sometimes fixes the problem. I called customer support Caldigit and they had no idea what I was saying, so they offered to get back to me the following day.
It always failed and I got the message about the drive not being properly superspeex before unplugging it. Rated 1 out of 5 by cabs from Doesn’t work, Caldigit’s poor cust serv.
I will post within a week with a review of the actual product. Rated 1 out of 5 by Marcsusie from USB 3. All components, from the card to the cable, have been tested using a special oscilloscope to ensure optimum performance.
