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

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.
  • Pros: Tiny, easy to install and use
  • Cons: None

  • Cons: Can't be used with a hub--must be plugged directly into computer

Apple USB Modem

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.
  • 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!
  • Pros: Very easy to set up and use
  • Cons: It's external
