5 out of 5 eggsworks with win7 great, no driers listed for osx

Pros: works well with my win 7 desktop and canon ide scanner.
for the person with the mac osx driver question the rosewill website does not show mac compatibility for this unit.
Itunes has a software solution
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/faxdocument/id423420465
but I am unsure how this works if you need to use a regular phone line

Cons: no cons, i have found this works perfectly with the win7 document fax accessory program

4 out of 5 eggsWorks so far...

Pros: Working on win7 32-bit. Got it for $20 and free shipping which is twice what some cost but this seems more reliable.

Cons: Required lugging my parent's PC to my house so I could get the latest updates to then install this modem. If you already have internet then this will be easy to setup, if not you *may* have some work to do - especially if the computer hasn't been updated in years...

Other Thoughts: At first I received no dial tone - but I had forgotten to remove or disable the old (unreliable/broken) modem card! Be sure this doesn't happen to you as you might think the product is defective when it isn't. I nearly RMA'd it...

5 out of 5 eggsIt works in Windows 8.1Pro

Pros: Easy To Install

Cons: Took a while to get it to work with Windows 8

Other Thoughts: At beginning I thought that this products was not meant to be used for Windows 8. Also, the drivers didn't work either in Windows 8.

Then after a month and half the Windows 8 auto downloaded the 8.1 upgrade and it worked after that. The upgrade auto recognized and started to work.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Win 7 x64

Pros: Tested this for a relative. Used the Vista x64 driver for Win 7 x64. Modem recognized. Installed the Classic Phone Tools (BVRP folder on CD) and tested the connections to a local dial-up ISP. Also tested sending AT commands in terminal mode. Fax tools OK also

Cons: None, c'mon it's a modem

Other Thoughts: Didn't try the Vista driver with Win 8.1 x64 , but generally I have had success with Vista hardware drivers on Win7, so I'll try it - although there is no really good reason to be using Win 8/8.1 at all - except if one is stuck with it, i.e., new pc.

4 out of 5 eggsreally pleased with fax capability

Pros: works with windows 7 fax, software based dialing, so should be able to specify special numbers if you have a two line system.

Cons: sometimes takes a while to redial if the fax you are sending to ignores the first try.

Other Thoughts: works well with my cannon scanner

1 out of 5 eggsMisrepresented and Miffed

Pros: None

Cons: NOT Windows 8 compatible as stated under specifications
Not even really worth a single egg for me!

Other Thoughts: I purchased this modem so that I could send faxes and use CallerID software. I'm an experienced tech of 25 years (but am now disabled and unable to work), and typically if I can't get something working properly, no one else can. I sent an email to Rosewill support and received this reply....

Newegg, you REALLY need to remove the claim of Windows 8 compatibility from your described specs list. Due to you misrepresenting this product, I'm stuck with a product that won't/can't work, and according to your terms and conditions, I can't get a refund/store credit OR get all of my money back due to a restocking fee, despite the fact that this is the fault of newegg and not my own.

4 out of 5 eggsUSB Modem

Pros: Comes with fax software (Classic Phone Tools) which is a must if you're still using Vista. My first "send" went through without a hitch. Seems well made - all the edges line up, the cable is solidly attached, etc.

Cons: None found.

Other Thoughts: Classic Phone Tools is also very easy to use.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage

Pros: It's cheap?

Cons: Bought this for my mother's computer; dialup is her only access option.

Autorun on disk behaved strangely and failed to launch the correct driver setup when the correct OS was selected.

Manually attempting to install the driver via several means failed in several different ways.

Reminded me of trying to install sound hardware on Win2k.

I've had horrid experiences with every Rosewill component I've bought, but it had been six years or more since I bought something from them; this was cheap so I decided to give them another chance.

Guess I should've listened to my prejudices.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent for linux and win

Pros: out of the box - it works.
read earlier reviews and downloaded win 7 driver from manufacturer BEFORE using it with win 7.
using successfuly with linux antix (debian).

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: would have been nice to have had a copy of symantec's fax software, but they haven't made it since supporting win xp pro sp3.
not sure about working with win 8 [personally don't like 8 (ui too cumbersome)]
