First of all, this was in the box with another product we'd ordered from Amazon and we threw the box away without realizing the CAC reader was it in. Even after we saw that the order contained the item, we looked in the box and STILL didn't see it hiding under the air pillows. It comes in a very tiny package, just wrapped in cellophane, so look carefully in your box if you suspect it might be with another order.

It was not plug and play for me, but I found some great instructions and it works fine now, thanks to militarycac.com. I am using Mac OS 10.8.4.

First of all, just open your Keychain Access app (in the Utilities folder), insert your CAC and see if it shows up in the top left corner. If it does, you can probably skip directly to Step D below.

Here's how I did it:

A. Go to: [...] You will be following steps 5a and 6.

Follow instructions in 5a to import all the CAC certificates into the Keychain Access app. I'm not really sure this is necessary, or if just the next step (Step B) will work without doing this. (The DOD intermediate certificates are not visible in the keychain by default. However, the certificates are pre-installed on the Mac OS X computer.)

B. To install a CAC enabler, go to Step 6 on the militarycac.com page above. I chose the CACKey program, which downloaded a .tar file (click OK at the alert message about the file extension), which opened to become a .pkg, which you click to install the software.

(I chose CACKey because I have an Oberthur CAC)

C. Restart the computer.

D. Go back to Keychain Access app.

It should be noted that this is the same as Apple part number H2312LL/A. This reader works just fine with a CAC card on my Mac, using Outlook 2011. The packaging is minuscule -- it doesn't include any instructions or anything like that. It is recognized immediately by the OS however, and both Outlook and Keychain Access (Apple's application for managing certificates/passwords) had no problem reading it. There are numerous sites that tell you how to configure Mail.app and Outlook to use this (it's a little different on the Mac than it is on the PC because Mac Outlook's menus are all different; I've also configured Outlook on the PC to use the CAC), so you should be able to find instructions via Google.

The device itself is pretty slick. It's about the size of your average thumb drive (about an inch by a quarter inch by a half inch), and comes with a little loop that you can put on your average badge lanyard (so, presumably, you can keep it on the same thing you keep the CAC on). It doesn't seem especially _rugged_, and I do have concerns that it might get broken in the environments I use my laptop in, but at $30, I'm not real worried.

Ordinarily I would have used a PC-card based reader, but I use this on my Macbook Air, which only has USB. For this purpose, it's pretty useful.

This is a great product. I needed a CAC reader before I head out to BOLC. I plugged this into my laptop, it automatically updated the driver, and it worked the first time. I was able to log into AKO, check my travel card, and do training on ALMS without any issues. This may be the first thing to work perfectly the first time since I joned the National Guard.

I have Windows 8 and internet explorer 10. Everything worked without having to download extra software or update certificates.

I also like how small and unobtrusive it is. It fits neatly in a small pocket in my laptop bag.

I can't speak to durability as I only got this product yesterday. It is made of plastic. It does not seem particularly strong or particularly flimsy. It is about what you expect in most aftermarket hardware add ons. It does fold up nicely for storage and to protect the connector. In the field you would probably have to put it somewhere to protect it from dust. However, I think that is the case with most electronics.

If I had to come up with a con it would be lack of flexibility. It is set up to open right over the USB port, so you really can't use the adjacent ports at the same time. Something you sacrafice for the compactness and portability.

After fighting for countless hours trying to get my ActivCard reader to work with my new MacBook Pro 13", I found that I'd first have to update the reader's firmware on a Windows computer, or set up a Windows parallel. Instead, I hit the internet to find the best reader for my needs: Mac-compatible, portable, simple to use. I found that in the SCR 3500; its tiny so much more portable than the old ActivCard reader I had, and it is plug-n-play with Mac OS X 10.6.8. For anyone attempting to use a GEMALTO Common Access Card on the go, I would suggest this reader!

Easily one of the best and most portable Smart Card Readers I've used. I use this nearly daily and it's done well on a wide variety of environments. The best part is both under Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 it doesn't need any type of driver to install. It's automatically registered by the OS. This specifically come in handy when using on DoD machines, as you won't have any type of permissions to install drivers.

I can't recommend this card reader enough! Buy it, you won't be disappointed.
