Finally found a USB3 card from my original Macpro 1,1. The USB3 works perfectly. Haven't tried the eSata yet but no problems with my Lexar USB3 card reader or Seagate hard drives. I had the Lexar USB3 card but it only works with their own drives….nothing else.

Even after contacting their support and troubleshooting the issue, my Mac Pro 2008 does not read the card as USB 3. During testing, the transfer speed is a little faster than USB 2. The eSATA ports are a good addition. Over all a bit of a let down.
