Other Thoughts:Works well with my XP Pro desktop that is a small form factor machine that would not accommodate another PCI card. Another great feature about this USB External Modem is the short cable lacking on other modems that plug directly into the USB port. The cable gets the modem out of the way from other devices you might want to plug into an adjacent USB port.
Other Thoughts:Brought this to help out my aunt and uncle with a new all in one machine they have and it work great. No need to used the cd that came with it. Just plugged it into the computer let Windows 7 (Home Premium 64-bit) find it and it has worked flawlessly for the last 2 months. Definately worth the price.
