How about almost two years later getting an update? haha. I can confirm that indeed this DOES work with 10.8.... And it also works with 10.10.2! YTou don't need any drivers.

I'm replying to this thread because I wanted to get in touch specifically with the OP, who said in an earlier thread (that has since been locked):
