"List price" is the suggested retail price provided to us by our vendors. We make no representation that a substantial number of these products have been sold or offered for sale at the list price. Actual retail prices in your area may be substantially different. Since we sell products on a national basis, it is not possible to know if our merchandise is sold at list price in any particular location or at any particular time. "You Save" reflects the difference between our price and the vendor provided list price shown on our sites. Since the list price may be different than the actual retail prices in your area, you may not actually realize a savings of this amount.

Manufacturers sometimes ask that retailers not display a price if it drops below a certain amount. The "Click here to see Lowest Price" message indicates that the price of the item is so low that the manufacturer requested that it not be advertised (that is, displayed). In a brick-and-mortar store, you would probably have to ask a salesperson what the price of the product is. At eCOST, by clicking on "Click here to see Lowest Price" you are essentially asking to see the price, at which point we show it to you.

The Zoom/FaxModem 56K USB Model 2985 utilizes the capabilities of a computer's Universal Serial Bus for the fastest and most convenient modem hookup yet! Using the included USB cable, just plug the Zoom/FaxModem 56K USB into your PC, you don't even have to shut down the computer. The new modem will then be installed automatically and you'll be ready for fast, reliable access to the Internet, and other dial-up modems. Configuration is automatic and without the potential conflicts of an RS-232 serial port or an internal modem. The Zoom/FaxModem 56K USB doesn't even need an external power supply. It gets its power from the USB port itself.

The performance of the Zoom/FaxModem 56K USB can be significantly better than that of conventional 56K modems that connect to a computer through a serial port. The modem is capable of receiving data from an Internet Service Provider (ISP), online service, or corporate LAN over standard phone lines at speeds up to 56 Kbps uncompressed or 230.4 Kbps with compression. Outgoing data is transmitted at normal modem speeds of up to 33.6 Kbps.

The Zoom/FaxModem 56K USB is Dualmode; supporting both the V.90 ITU Standard and K56flex, the commonly used pre-standard 56K technology. The modem automatically selects V.90, K56flex or 33.6 Kbps or slower speed to achieve the fastest compatible connection speed.

The Zoom/FaxModem 56K USB features a reprogrammable Digital Signal Processor (DSP) and flash memory for downloading modem code updates. Like all Zoom Dualmode modems, the Zoom/FaxModem 56K USB includes V.80 capability for compatibility with H.324 standard point-to-point video telephony over regular phone lines. Additional features include Zoom's Channel 2 Call Waiting support which allows selective answering of incoming voice calls during Web browsing. The Channel 2 feature works in conjunction with the Call Waiting service available from most phone companies. It functions with all ISPs (including AOL) and popular browsers.

The Model 2985 also features ZoomGuard. ZoomGuard provides superior protection against lightning, the number one cause of modem failure. ZoomGuard is not only better than the "varistor" protection found on other modems, but also outperforms most stand-alone surge protectors.
