    Works great since OS X Lion all the way to OS Sierra

    Bought it on Amazon.com since I needed to get it fast and has been working for the past few years with minor issues that were easily fixed (issues tied more to PKCard software client than this actual CAC reader).

    For military use, understand that all branches sites don't play very nicely with Mac, but, I have been able to do all the things needed of my CAC. I am able to digitally sign forms in EES, PDF's, as well as access sites like MyPay and AKO without issue. There is no S/MIME support in Mac, so if you get encrypted emails often, you WILL NOT be able to access them unless you bootcamp a windows version.

    Otherwise, it is a great reader. Only aesthetic issue is that it will block your other USB port (2012 MacBook pro and below). I am able to get around the issue by using a G Drive over the thunderbolt port instead of using a USB connection for external storage. That way, I am able to keep my external drive connected and also have the reader and CAC card installed.

    Don't Buy This Product

    I bought this item, went through 5 hrs of trouble shooting with the software company for Activclient, then another 2 hrs with Indentiv. Their tech support admitted it was a faulty reader, but since I purchased it through Apple they don't recognize the 12 month warranty as advertised. Apple only has a limited 14 day, and Identiv said it wasn't their issue, I should have purchased straight from them and then hung up the phone on me!!!! Their customer service even ACKNOWLEDGED that their tech support said it was a defective reader!!!!
