  • Summary: I have used USR modems since the dino ages remember setting jumper shunts to configure hardware? They are on the mark of quality and serviceability . Last off brand I tryed was a usb ( from another retailer ) no brand name no driver disc no support web site .
  • Pros: Cost of item is reasonable shipping was only a dollar . The US Robotics have been around a long time .
  • Cons: The driver disc is a littel weird . You need to know your operating system the drivers are not automaticaly detected for the install . My os Win XP sp 3 a driver warning displayed during the install but they work without any problem. Do your self a favor before any upgrade of hardware install set...

Worked well with Win8

Champagne D., Newegg
11 June 2014
  • Summary: It's just a modem, but it does respond to V.90 and V.92 commands. I'm buying a new one for $4 less than the last time.
  • Pros: Simple to install. This is just a basic device without any extra buttons and whistles. I have a client up in the mountains that is just using a dial-up connection and this modem did the trick, right up to when the power came over the phone line and visibly burned the board.
  • Cons: None

Need really old tech in a really new computer?

Benjamin Miller, Amazon
23 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought this and installed it in a brand new HP machine just a few weeks ago (5/1/14) for a friend who still had the unfortunate idea of purchasing dial-up internet. He also faxes with it. It works swimmingly well if 1990's era dial up is your idea of a good time.
