5 out of 5 eggsperfect for HylaFAX

Pros: Finding a modem that will work with linux is a nightmarish task, but this one was plug and play! showed up in my debian install (pve-kernel-2.6.32-26) instantly as /dev/ttyACM0. Works flawlessly with HylaFAX and our fax to e-mail system.

Cons: nothing so far.

Other Thoughts: works so well that I bought a spare to keep on hand. I hope they don't stop making this for as long as fax is around, it's one of those things that I hate to support, but businesses are obsessed with using a horrifically outdated technology. At lease this modem exists to save the day and make me look good to my boss ;) I use Winprint HylaFAX Reloaded on our windows desktops to provide a virtual printer that employees can use to fax any printable document from their computers. This gets us one step closer to going paperless!

1 out of 5 eggspaper weight

Pros: nice size

Other Thoughts: buy with caution

2 out of 5 eggsDidn't Work with My Remote Site

Pros: Plays modem sounds through PC audio; installed fine

Cons: It connected to the remote site I use, but would not reliably upload data to it, even when I lowered the baud rate.

Other Thoughts: Borrowed a USR5637 from a friend and that worked, so I'm ordering one. Twice the price, but a bargain that doesn't work isn't.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Too,

We are so sorry for any inconveniences this may have caused you due to unreliable upload. I would like to suggest you to uninstall and re-install the driver via the following link, http://www.trendnet.com/downloads/list_subcategory.asp?SUBTYPE_ID=1427. You also can try on a different computer to troubleshoot if you want to. Please ensure that you have a solid green on the link light and blinking green on the data light while transferring traffic. If these still don’t help please email me at Adrian@trendnet.com with “Newegg TFM-561U” in the subject line and I will respond to assist immediately. I hope to hear from you soon and to restore your faith in TRENDnet.

Warmest regards,

Adrian

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Plug and play with my laptop. As advertised. No issues. Meets my needs in this area.

Cons: Desktop required installation of software on CD. It is an older PC with a dying HD so that may explain why the hardware was recognized but not initiated. Software installation interface ugly - not a smooth process.

Other Thoughts: If this is for a laptop you shouldn't have issues with it being plug 'n play. I only wish it was slightly smaller for easier carrying.

5 out of 5 eggsfine little modem

Pros: Works great, can't beat the price

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Installed on Win7 64-bit Pro. Was having intermittent issues with it not working until I installed the driver from the CD. Now it is rock-solid.

Troubleshooting tips:
1) install driver from CD
2) might need to plug into a different USB slot to get Windows to recognize after installing drivers (even after rebooting)
