It's ok3 Posted by: from: on I don't use the CAC reader like I thought I would.

Great card reader5 Posted by: from: on This Common Access Card (CAC) reader is the easiest to use and install. All I did was connect it and was able to use it immediately. Definitely worth it!

A Hard to find an Enterprise compatible CAC Reader5 Posted by: from: on This CAC reader is awesome. No muss, no fuss. All windows versions, and OS X had the drivers installed. While the USB port used seems to make a difference on the newer Enterprise laptops this Reader is truly play and use. Another great positive is that the Reader provides tactile feedback when inserting the CAC Card which a lot of readers do not. The CAC card will "click" when fully inserted, preventing improper insertion.

Not a CAC reader1 Posted by: from: on If you are the military and need a CAC reader for your personal computer then do not buy this item. It doesn't work I don't know why but it's not compatible with the PKI certificates.

It works with my PIV card just fine4 Posted by: from: on I use a PIV card to log into my computer network and this card reader works just fine. Sometimes I get a error message with it not reading my card but after a couple re-inserts I usually get it to work these card readers are hard to find in traditional brick-and-mortar store them and Tori so I was lucky to not have to wait and order it online.
