    MOTU 4230 reviews

    HDX-SDI SDI/HDMI/Analog Video Interface with Thunderbolt is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does NOT work with Yosemite, despite claiming OS X support We bought two of these to use with our new Mac Pros with OS X Yosemite, based on the claim of OS X support on the MOTU product page. Come to find out that there have been no new video drivers issued by MOTU since early 2014. Tech support said be patient, we're waiting on a fix from Apple. Months and several point versions of Yosemite later there are STILL no new drivers, and their product page STILL claims OS X support, with no disclaimer. Conclusion: MOTU does not care about video. Stick with a company that does, and does not continue to sell its products with false compatibility claims.
