Sunix USB 3.0 ExpressCard on a mac

Recommended Posts

Hi,

ExpressCards is a neat way of extending your laptop with new functionality - in this case we are going to have a look at USB 3.0 - my test machine is a Lenovo x201s running Mavericks 10.9.3

The card is automatically detected - however you will need to install a kext to get it to work.

So lets look at performance using a external USB 3.0 disk - 7200rpm.
