    Hi,
    Looking at putting a CalDigit USB 3.0 card in my Mac Pro, if i used a USB 3.0 hub with it would I notice a speed difference, would there be no point in having USB 3.0 if using a hub?

    Thanks
    Jake

    That card won't work with a USB hub at all. It is for storage devices only, and frankly I think it's a bit shady that they don't say so on their website.

    Read the first post here. It has lots of information.

    No, the Lacie card uses the Lacie driver. :)
