I have a internal winmodem. Doesn't work for linux.
Had a US Robotics Courier V.Everything External 56K Modem. Worked great in PCLinuxOS & XP. Bought it used on ebay for <$14. Lasted a month & a half. Oh well. I figure it was about 8yrs old. New they sell for $250. Ain't going that crazy.
So I need another external 56k serial modem.
What should I get? Budget is $20 or less delivered.
Heres my ideas in order of preference. I'll cite condition & price I can acquire. And a link for product, for descriptive purposes only if available.
#1 - Best Data 56SX92 SmartOne 56Kbps External Serial Modem - New for $20. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16825138103
#2 - Zoom 56K dual mode external modem - Used for ~$15.
#3 - US Robotics Courier V.Everything External 56K Modem - Used for ~$15. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16825104004 Newer model pictured.
I think I have to go for the new Best Data. Otherwise the used ones are 4-9yrs old. What do you think? Any better deals? Thanks.
