Summary: Maybe it's bad luck, but both of these I had died, and the second one died exactly a day out of warranty.
Pros: Fairly cheap
Cons: The first one I bought worked for about a week. Then it stopped dialing, and the light on it never lit up again. I had a replacement shipped, and that one worked for 1 month before it did the same thing- no dial tone, no more light. I tried different USB ports, and so I doubt it's the laptop I'm using that's killing these.
Excerpt: set up on widows 7 pro x64 machine and works like a charm. didn't have to download anything. it was plug and play. works with the built in "Windows Fax and Scan" application. can't ask anything more from it.
Summary: works so well that I bought a spare to keep on hand. I hope they don't stop making this for as long as fax is around, it's one of those things that I hate to support, but businesses are obsessed with using a horrifically outdated technology. At lease this modem exists to save the day and make me look good to my boss ;) I use Winprint HylaFAX Reloaded on our windows desktops to provide a virtual printer that employees can use to fax any printable document from their...
Pros: Finding a modem that will work with linux is a nightmarish task, but this one was plug and play! showed up in my debian install (pve-kernel-2.6.32-26) instantly as /dev/ttyACM0. Works flawlessly with HylaFAX and our fax to e-mail system.
Cons: Does not work with Windows 8. Another review response from Trendnet said they wanted to renew confidence in the product. After I contacted Trendnet, they just said it doesn't work. No responxe of we are working on it or anything positive.
