No drivers required.

Also the SD card does not fit flush, so you can't leave the SD card in the Express slot without taking the chance of bumping and damaging it or the main board.

So far it's working great with my MacBook Pro 17" (early 2011).

Before buying this, I found that some of the other options (34-in-1 cards and so on) did have some issues with Mac OS X, people had to remove the card and reboot after being in sleep mode and boot without the card reader inserted in the expresscard slot. I didn't find any reviews on this card, but I took a chance and bought it anyway.

And it works nicely. I have tried rebooting, putting the computer to sleep and waking it again all with the expresscard inserted. And it worked, had no trouble. And I did not have to install any driver or anything.
(My computer is a 1st generation Intel MacBook Pro with OSX 10.5. I have only tried it with SD and SDHC cards, but they worked well.)

Like the previous reviewer I have a MacBook Pro, though mine is one of the more recent LED-backlit models. I've only had the card reader for a day so far but it works well for reading my cards and my machine hasn't had any problems sleeping. It used to be that these expresscard readers were either expensive, didn't support SDHC, or had annoying quirks like preventing your Mac from sleeping. Thankfully we've now got a cheap reader that works perfectly!

I can think of one thing some folks might want to be aware of. The adapter itself fits flush into the expresscard slot with maybe 1mm sticking out, but when you insert an SD card it sticks out about a centimeter or more. This is just fine if you're using it to transfer files to/from a camera or other device, but you probably wouldn't want to use it as an always-attached storage device.

Ive returned three other Express card readers and this is the only one ive found that reads SDHC and doesnt cause narcolepsy on MacBook Pros. I can put it in my MBP and just leave it there forever.

Falls just short of being perfect by not blending in with the aluminum design on the outward surface, but hey, nothing is perfect.

2010 Unibody MacBook Pro, 8 gigs RAM, 256 GB platter HD, OS X 10.6.x (Snow Leopard). Been using this adapter for a month or so.

The few specification links I could find on this product all mention cards up to only 32GB (SDHC). But I inserted a high-end Sony SDXC 64GB card (rated at 40MB/s transfer rate) and this Express Slot Adapter totally exceeded my expectations. I haven't tried one (LOL, I don't OWN one to be honest), but I see no reason why the 128 GB and 256 GB cards wouldn't work, too.

Seriously blazing data transfer speeds in and out of the Sony card. _Seriously_ fast.

Seated into the slot, the adapter fits flush with the computer's case, but the memory card itself sticks out ~1/2 inch when inserted. Could be a problem for some. If you can live with that, though: this thing rocks.

Next up, I have to get a USB 3.0 Express Card. I wish I had known about Express Card adapters a long time ago.

[UPDATE 08/22/2013]:

I just bought OS X 10.8.4 Mountain Lion from Apple's App Store. After reading the reviews online, I did not want to install it on my MBP's internal drive. So I decided to install it on a Class 10 16GB SDHC card inserted in the Express Card adapter. I used Disk Utility to format the SDHC card properly, then directed the OS X installer to use that card as a boot disk. Installation went smoothly. Took all of about 20 minutes. Restarted my Mac, booting into Mountain Lion off the 16GB card! This card in this adapter is *easily* fast enough to serve as a boot disk. And I see no reason that it couldn't serve as a boot disk for Ubuntu, Red Hat, any flavor of Windows or any other Mac OS. Quite frankly, it's like having a little SSD in my laptop. In fact, I think I'll buy a couple of other SDHC cards and install the other operating systems on them and I can take ALL of them with me on the go. Hope you all find this useful!

This product is great, and the shipping is very fast. I ordered it late at night on a Tuesday and received it the following Friday. My main concern was whether or not this would work with linux. I tested it with the memory card I use for the phone, and it works out of the box with Ubuntu 8.04.

Apple chose to supply an Express Card slot instead of an SD reader in the MacBook Pro. Hard to fault them because the slot is much more useful than a card reader, but this is the one feature that I need on a daily basis. This solved that issue for me. Easy to use & no configuration. The only suggestion that I would have is that the card be redesigned so that the SD card fits entirely inside. Other vendors have done this and it allows you to leave the card in place when you put your laptop away. Not a big issue, because I store my SD cards securely after each use, but it would be handy. When inserted, the SD card sticks out about 1/2".

I use this with my MacBook Pro 17" Unibody (2009 model) and it works seamlessly. It fits into the express slot as if the MacBook Pro was supposed to have it there (which it should have in the first place). I have had no problems with cards not being able to be read in it, so I rate this item top stars.

This little San Disk adapter gives me the versatility I was missing by getting a MacBook Pro with an Express 34 slot. The price was insignificant compared the added flexibility of being able to use SD/XD cards and an Express 34 card for ESATA backups! Looks good / works good.
