A very simple USB device that does the job well. No need to use the supplied driver disc as my new Windows 7 64bit PC instantly found it and loaded the drivers in seconds. Also set it up on my Windows 8.1 laptop and it works fine. Used it a couple of times on the day I received it (today) to update my 'free' websites and it works just as good as the built in dial up modem in my old but 'slow' PC. Just hope it keeps working. There's no instruction manual, but its plug and play so you don't really need one. All you need do is go to Control Panel - Network and Sharing Centre - Set Up A Dial Up Connection and take it from there. Delivered 5 days after placing the order, so assume it came from within the UK and not China.

56kbps USB Voice/Data/Fax Modem (Conexant Chip):
Plug and Play on 32-bit & 64-bit Windows 8 Pro.

This modem seems to work OK with 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 8 Pro, using the drivers supplied automatically by Windows & Windows Update. You have to adjust the Windows Firewall to allow traffic through to the modem. You also have to adjust the Windows Fax program to allow the sending & receiving of faxes via this modem.

It achieved a good fast data connection to a dialup ISP. It also successfully sent & received faxes at 14.4kbps, although auto-answering seemed to take longer than the chosen number of rings. (Not a problem, unless other equipment on the same line is also set to answer calls.) I have not tried its voice mode, or caller ID.

This modem may well offer more features, but the CD containing the manual & drivers arrived cracked. It has two un-labelled LEDs but when used with the USB connectors on my PCs, these LEDs always face the floor.

At just over £6 the value was amazing. When ordering I wasn't aware it was to be shipped by BuyinCoinsUK from China which held up receipt for much longer than I had anticipated. It arrived with a mini CD containing no instructions. In the event Windows 7 installed the device automatically but with some other operating systems you may have to play around trying the various configuration options on the CD.

One niggle is that when sending a fax no sound is generated using my Windows 7 system so it's very hard to follow progress of the fax. But for that, I would have given it 5 stars.

Arrived, promptly. mini cd for drivers which doesn't fit in a vertical disk drive so had to fumble around to get hold of it. eventually got it off the CD on an old PC. set it up and i t just doesn't work. not worth the bother to send it back. Note to self, order a quality one next time!

It works, only used as auto-dialer. Plug in and go.
Sometimes USB does not pick it up and a re-plug solves the problem.
