Disappointing

HMR "rainbowram", Amazon
27 September 2012
  • Summary: Tried two of these, each on two different Macs, on two different phone lines. The first one just gave a 'phone line could not be detected' and 'modem error' messages. Returned and swiftly replaced by Amazon, outstanding service.

Warning - no UK phone cable included! Otherwise, good modem.

Mr. I. Jeffray, Amazon
30 August 2012
  • Summary: Fairly unbelievably, this product does NOT include a UK 'BT' modem cable. You get a US-style RJ11-to-RJ11 cable, which is useless in the UK. Fortunately, I had a cable from an old modem, but Amazon and USR should make it clear that this modem can't be used "out of the box" in the UK.

Easy to use dial-up Modem

Stephen Gardiner, Amazon
3 February 2012
  • Summary: Needed a dial-up modem for banking purposes - this particular modem was recommended by the bank. Was easy to install, worked first time. Only had the connections for US phone lines though - needed to buy an adapter to work on the UK phone network (only cost £4.oo from various outlets so no great...

Features not what was expected

Synapse Sales, Amazon
29 January 2012
  • Summary: I think that fax/modems generally are in an awful mess. As a programmer - I was particularly interested in the called ID (OR Caller Line Identification as its called in the UK.) Sadly I could not get this to work and the "help" you get on this matter it often confusing and inaccurate.

Fax/internet Modem for Macbook Pro

NLB, Amazon
29 January 2012
  • Summary: The item is neat and well built. Installation very easy just pop the disc in and away you go. The userguide however is non existant. Connecting to the internet using dial up was very easy and quite straight forward, however trying to send a fax was a completely different experience.

Great Modem - it works!

Annie MacDonald, Amazon
28 January 2012
  • Summary: US Robotics modems just seem to work! I've had nothing but problems with Zoom in the UK, even with the correct country set-up, but this modem came to the rescue. My only complaint is that there is no speaker on it and it doesn't feed into the computer speakers (the Zoom does). I recommend it.

Excellent Modem

FrancisB, Amazon
27 January 2012
  • Summary: This is a great product. I am using it on a windows server to run an automated fax program, and it works as well as one could expect. It is really simple to install, and the drivers are included in server 2008 R2, so no need to download. It is small and easy to use.

Great to use (though installation not true 'plug and play')

dlp6666, Amazon
26 January 2012
  • Summary: Great piece of kit, this - once set up, works silently and very effectively indeed with my new Windows 8 laptop(none of the old dial-up noisy crackles/ring tones etc.). My only grumble was that it wasn't really the 'plug and play' ease of set up that the packaging promised.

Windows 7 Compatible

Bloke, Amazon
24 January 2012
  • Summary: Great fax modem which works well under Windows 7 (as well as previous operating systems). Its unobtrusive and doesn't require a power socket, obtaining its power from the USB port.

self-powered and cool running. More importantly

R M APPLEBY, Amazon
24 January 2012
  • Summary: Small, light, self-powered and cool running. More importantly, it also properly understands UK callerid signalling.
