    HighPoint RocketU 1022C reviews

    RocketU 1022C Dual-Port USB 3.1 Gen 1 SuperSpeed PCIe 2.0 Host Bus Adapter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product Previous version of RocketU 1022AM did not allow sleep on older Mac Pro unles driver installed and would see only drives. The 1022C allows sleep, works with drives, hubs and card readers. It requires no driver other than the existing one in Mac os 10.7 thru 10.10. It is an excellent and inexpensive means of gaining USB 3.0 on older Mac Pro. We have installed it on two machines and it is superb.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from WORKS ON MAC PROS For some reason, that I cannot for the life of me understand, Highpoint makes no mention on the box, or B&H on their website, that this card works on Macs.Not only that, but this card can provide a FULLY functional USB port. Unlike their RU1044AM which does not allow the use of SD/CF card readers. They recomend OS 10.9, but I'm running 10.8 and it seems to work fine.SD downloads are now very fast. CF downloads are only a little faster than from my Firewire 800 reader.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works on 2009 Mac Pro Plugged it in, turned it on...works. Did not need to connect external power. Works with my Anker USB 3 hub. My Magic Mouse got sluggish all of a sudden and after doing some research, turns out it's an RF issue with the Anker hub interfering with the Bluetooth connection of the mouse. Moved the USB hub under the desk and mouse works fine again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised Works as advertised. The speed difference between USB 3.0 and 2.0 is shocking for the uninititated (me). Can't believe I waited so long! This card was very easy to setup and seems to support any kind of USB device,including cameras and even track balls: depsite Highpoint often reported as only working with USB drives.
