View Full Version : So, if not Dynalink or SwannSmart then what?...

11-11-2001, 09:12 PM
Okay, I want to get a new 56k external serial modem for my PC (W2K).

Dynalink has been a disaster and it is dubious whether Swann will support theirs.

So what options are left? If you wanted a good hardware modem, what one would *you* buy?

if its a hardware modem then go the hcf v90 way either external or internal so what exactly is the problem you have with the dynalink modem

Cruise over to http://www.ascent.co.nz and get yourself a US Robotics or Diamond Supra modem.

It will come at a cost, but a decent modem is worth every cent, IMO.

I know you said in a previous posting that US Robotics were expensive.... but they ARE good. Went through a similar exercise after lightning blew up my system and after trying various internal and external modems on sale or return basis, went back to a US Robotics external fax/modem.

it may very well end up being a US Robotics then since I *know* that the one I borrowed was excellent.

One thing I can't seem to determine is the difference between the different US Robotics ones. The sites I find my way to just don't list dial-up modems at all.

Apart from cost, does anyone know the difference between these:

US Robotics Ext Courier 56K Fax Modem
US Robotics Ext V90 56K Fax Modem

Is Courier like a primo version?
