    Yes, hot swap as promised, for both my WD My BOOK and Seagate USB 3.0 external HD's. My PNY 32GB USB 3.0 pen-drive works fine if plugged directly.
    Unfortunately, my Dynex USB 3.0 Port Hub model DX-U34H41 not supported. Since I do not let my System HD hibernate, I don't know if the HD's connected to the board need any help (pluging/unpluging) to be back to work after the system wake up.

    Not Compatible with MAC OS 10.8

    The company has no plans to write a driver for Mountain Lion (MAC OSX-10.8) - I just talked with them. It is likely compatible with the previous OS (older Lion OS).

        Comments about HighPoint RU1022AM RocketU Dual USB 3.0 for Mac:

        I bought this to use on my MacPro. Works with my Lexar USB3 dual card reader as well as a USB3 portable hard drive. After driver installation, I lost my circular eject icons for all of my drives and cards, in the sidebar on OS 10.5.1. Their support access is clumsy and the response I got from them missed the issue completely and there was no way to write a response. It is fast and it works, but it messed with the Mac OS inerface and that is an inconvienience.

            Very easy to install, I used the supplied CD for the initial software install but by going to the website you will get the most recent software version. I saw an immense increase in file transfer speed over USb2. I also bought a WD Mybook 3TB and it can transfer 200Gb of video files in such a short amount of time it was amazing. This little inexpensive card will change your macpro5,1 forever

                    Why even make somethin so useless?

                          Purchased for the USB 3.0 capability, seems to serve.

                            After reading conflicting reviews, I thought I would give it a try. Yes. It's official - this card does not support the use of SD/CF card readers on a Mac Pro. After contacting Highpoint Technology, that's the word back, despite product descriptions on some sites saying it does - and what's really strange is the review below saying it works. Very odd.

                            The reader will only function, in a limited fashion if you unplug and replug in the reader to the computer, otherwise, just plugging a card in won't allow the card to mount. Even when it mounts, the speed of transfer was no better than Firewire 800 card reader.

                                    Very simple installation and worked right out of the box. A simple and inexpensive way to add high speed downloading of my large digital camera files into the computer--without the expense of going to thunderbolt. Way faster than Firewire 800 when paired with Lexar USB 3.0 card reader. A good upgrade investment on my 2008 Mac Pro tower.

                                      The company has no plans to write a driver for Mountain Lion (MAC OSX-10.8) - I just talked with them. It is likely compatible with the previous OS (older Lion OS).

                                            Would use it for USB 3 card reader, but doesn't work with card readers. I had to find the reason on the web...
