5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin!, 16 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Max Value 56K USB Modem (Electronics)
Having recently bought a Netbook for use when travelling I discovered it does not have a dial-up modem installed as standard which is fine as long as travelling where there is WiFi access. However most of my travelling is in locations where WiFi is not always readily available so a dial-up connection has to be made.
True this type of connection does seem very slow if trying to access websites or downloading large files but at least it keeps me with essential contact with my email. The fact that it is powered by the USB port is also a great advantage when travelling as is its small size.
This device does what it says on the tin and for a very low price so comes highly recommended.
Note that I am using it for pure dial-up connection and did not load any of the s/w supplied for fax use etc so cannot comment on the extra features.....but for what I need it for its great.

Good to see it works with a netbook - but were you running Windows XP or a linux variant? Which netbook?

Am looking for a modem to use with the Asus 901 (EEE) running linux (Ubuntu as it happens)
