    Pros: It just works. Has power and data lights like a NIC so you can tell if its working.
    Cons: Doesn't connect at FIOS speeds. [rim shot]
    It just works. Has power and data lights like a NIC so you can tell if its working. Doesn't connect at FIOS speeds. [rim shot] Its plugged it into my VBox install of IPCop. Once I figured out that it didnt like USB 2.0, I was up and running. Worked out of the box on a IPCop physical install. I am thrilled this works with Linux without custom kernel modules.

    Pros: Small. Worked out of the box on Kubuntu 9.10 (Linux), this is a FULL hardware modem. It is rock solid. I needed a stable, hardware based modem for transmitting caller id info to all my networked linux computers and media centers using NCID (Network CallerID) All i had to change was the default modem device link in the conf file. I plan on using this modem for faxing as well, This modem im sure will standup to the tests of time.
    Cons: None

    Pros: This worked uneventfully on Ubuntu 10.04 using the device /dev/ttyACM0.
    Cons: If you want a phone next to a computer you'll need a splitter since these USB modems don't have an in and out phone jack.
    This worked uneventfully on Ubuntu 10.04 using the device /dev/ttyACM0. If you want a phone next to a computer you'll need a splitter since these USB modems don't have an in and out phone jack. I only tried basic dial-up internet. We had no need for faxing, voice or other uses beyond the basic.

    Pros: works like a modem
    Cons: included driver CD installs malware on your computer called "Integrity Online USR Promo" if you launch the setup.exe. Microsoft Security Essentials detects it as a backdoor trojan.
    To U.S Robotics: DONT FORCE INSTALL BOGUS/MALWARE/PROMO/ETC. ON MY PC WITHOUT MY AUTHORIZATION.

    Pros: Well designed device by USRobotics that is simple, easy to install and use on Win 7. Performs as intended, good mix of features in both hardware and software.

I have only been using for about a week but have not experienced any problems so no cons yet. I have always used US Robotics modems and have always had good service out of them, including their warranty.
    I can only assume that would be the case with this particular model.

    Pros: For this modem - none
    Cons: Modem never would work on three separate platforms. Wouldn't work on win2000, winxp or vista. Contacted support at USR website twice. They NEVER responded. Not even when I requested an RMA. I bought this as a gift. The receiver couldn't get the modem to work on two machines. I tried it on three of mine.

    Pros: Small and easy to carry if needed. I'd been searching for a new fax modem for my Ubuntu linux machine for some time. It is auto recognized and works seemlessly with gFax-gtk as long as you set it up with the correct modem address. This I had to do by plugging in the fax modem and in terminal typing dmesg. The modem and it's system address shows up as one of the last, if not the last message.
    Cons: I wish it had caller id capability.

    Pros: Lightweight, easy install, you can use it anywhere there's a phone line, boosts the internet speed slightly, and it's a fair price.
    March 29, 2009 Danka says:
    Pros: Modem is not dependent on Hardware based drivers. My old PCI modem card has no hardware drivers for 64 bit Vista.
    Modem can be used with almost any OS. Has software drivers for Linux as well as MAC
    Modem is portable since it is USB, so can be quickly moved to other computers when required.
    Cons: None. Phone modems are not rocket science anymore. It does the job.

    Pros: I've used this Modem with absolute success and ease in the following Linux distros: Ubuntu 8.04, Ubuntu 8.1,Open Suse11.0, Open Suse 11.1, PC Linux OS,
    Puppy Linux 4.12 (LIVE CD & Installed), Many "Puplets" and Linux Mint 6. This modem is super easy to use with KPP and Kinternet dial up tools. Also worth mentioning is that it requires NO driver cd in LINUX. It is my belief that it would perform equally as well in almost any newer Linux Distro!
    Cons: There Just aren't any cons with this US Robotics Modem! It works flawlessly for me
    and I use it on many machines and operating systems.
