I am both an experienced (33 years since my first TRS-80 in 1979) computer user and MIDI instrument owner (since 1991), but I found this product somewhat disappointing unless Apple and/or Roland get their driver issues resolved on this.
The Roland supplied CD-ROM does not mount nor can it be read by iMac OS 10.8.2, although works with old TiBook and Dell laptops, however.
Downloaded latest driver from RolandUS.com (um_1mx8d_v100), installed as directed.
No power ready light shows when connecting UM-ONE.
System Profile shows it there, but as not configured.
With Audio MIDI Setup opened to MIDI Studio window, UM-ONE does not appear.
Tried many things without success. Tried swapping old Edirol (Roland) UM-1X (formerly on Dell laptop) with UM-ONE. UM-ONE installed and worked on the DELL without any issues. MIDI instrument communicates with the DELL fine.
The UM-1X works without complaint and as expected when connected to any USB port on either the Dell or iMac, even a hub or keyboard port, just as it formerly had before changing operating systems, etc. It is old, but reliable.
Upshot is, for now, that old UM-1X works with either the Dell or the iMac, but is currently attached to the iMac. New UM-ONE (2011 model) only works with the Dell (Windows XP) which is OK for my purposes of having interfaces for two MIDI instruments on different floors of my home, but the UM-ONE will not serve as a backup to the old UM-1X which was my secondary goal. Hence 3/5 stars.
Others in Apple forum have reported similar problem, only difference being they were using a MacBook.
Bottom line: works fine on Windows systems, but on latest Apple hardware/OS it does not seem to; so if you are a Mac user, try to find a working older model by Edirol.
I did not try a cheaper product, but I believe the other review that says, you get what you pay for. Roland comes through!
Probably works well for other MIDI devices.

Great interface. I use it for my Roland TD 4 KP and my drum libraries using Ableton Live. I can record and sound "Acoustic" with a good drum library. Read morePublished on December 3, 2013 by Humberto

I connect my TD-9 V-Drums to my PC with this and use a USB extension cable, too. It seems to be a way to get long midi runs without the midi timing problems.Published on October 3, 2013 by Arno E. Jones
It worked flawlessly for me, but is quite expensive. I have a laptop hooked up to a cheap casio keyboard and used a few trial recording applications. Read morePublished on December 31, 2012 by David Lynch
