I've used both an SCR3310 and an SCR3500 without problems on OSX, as
well as Windows and Linux.  The SCR3500 has a nice form factor if you
have a laptop, but I'm always afraid I'm going to accidentally smack it
on something and break it.  The SCR3310 is nice, but I wish there was a
model with a six inch cord.
