Works well, so far

aarmitch, PriceGrabber
3 April 2008
  • Summary: We've been using the apple usb modem for about 2 months now and our only complaint is that it often won't connect on a managed account, but like I said above, that is probably more a problem with the OS (Leopard) than with the modem itself. On the non-managed account it works perfectly.
  • Pros: compact design, modem on hold feature
  • Cons: trouble dialing up on managed accounts (I'm still unsure if this is a modem problem or an OS problem)

Mac-to-phone is still useful

Ward44, PriceGrabber
7 October 2007
  • Summary: The days of external telephone modems has returned, apparently because the majority of people buying a new Mac have moved from dialup to broadband Internet. A Mac-to-phone connection is still useful for automated phone dialing from Address Book and for fax send & receive. The Apple USB Modem is trivial to install (just plug it in) and use (no configuration).
  • Pros: Tiny, easy to install and use
  • Cons: None

Apple USB modem

scopemonkey, PriceGrabber
24 May 2007
  • Summary: It is a shame Apple no longer includes a fax modem in their computers but this unobtrusive add-on does well. Easily configured with the built in support in OS X.
  • Pros: Small and it just plain works.
  • Cons: Can't be used with a hub--must be plugged directly into computer

Apple USB Modem

dhibar, PriceGrabber
3 January 2007
  • Summary: I purchased two external USB based modems to try on a G4 Mac Mini, the Apple USB Modem (MA034Z/A) and the Best Data Smart One series Modem (56USBPMAC). Overall, the Apple USB modem is a winner. It is small, unobtrusive, and gets very good through put. I averaged around 50k on this modem using Apple's standard external modem script. The modem consistently had better connection and through put speeds than the Best Data modem.
  • Pros: Size, style, performance.
  • Cons: Must be connected to a USB port on the computer, not via a hub.

Easy Apple Modem

LSW32, PriceGrabber
26 December 2006
  • Summary: Apple stopped putting internal modems in their newest computer. I have a MacBook that I take on vacation in Vermont where I don't have a wireless or broadband connection where I stay (although I can always get one nearby, there's nothing like having access RIGHT THERE where you're staying!) I was a bit concerned about using a dial-up service, but this modem works really well!
  • Pros: Very easy to set up and use
  • Cons: It's external

Innovación constante

Ciao
10 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Parece ser que Apple no cesa de lanzar al mercado productos que causan impresión, y como para muesta basta un botón pues aquí está este PowerBook G4 que hechiza y casi hipnotiza tanto por fuera como por su interior. Puedo comenzar a escribir esta opinión refiriéndome a cualquiera de sus características pero primero voy a decir que con respecto de sus predecesores la suavidad de las curvas en su línea externa ha cambiado para presentar un diseño con contornos más netos,...
  • Pros: Calidad de imagen, velocidad, diseño moderno
  • Cons: Cuando encuentre desventajas las pondré aquí

EL MODEM MÁS CÓMODO

Sebaz10, Ciao
8 October 2008
  • Summary: Siempre sentí curiosidad por estos modems USB. Teniendo en cuenta que Apple es garantia de calidad me lo compré. ¿El resultado? Estupendo. Es pequeño, liviano y podés conectarlo al puerto USB para poder acceder a tu línea telefónica. Hay que abrir el Panel de Preferencias de red, introducir los datos y conectarse nada mas. Tod es mucho más comodo por el solo hecho de su fácil manejo, ya que al ser tan pequeño y no ocupar lugar se puede trabajar más cómodo.
  • Pros: Su comodidad
  • Cons: La señal

Für den Internetnotfall

brodyramone, Ciao
18 February 2008
  • Summary: Für den Notfall habe mich mir dieses Apple USB Modem zugelegt. Ich habe letztens gemerkt, dass ich meiner VDSL Leitung nicht blind Vertrauen kann und hatte ca. 12 Stunden keine DSL Verbindung. Die Telefonleitung hat funktioniert. Genau in dieser Zeit habe ich jedoch auf eine E-Mail gewartet, weshalb ich mich dafür entschied erstmals das Modem zu verwenden.
  • Pros: sehr funktionell, einfache Konfiguration über OS X
  • Cons: langsam
