Zoom’s Gamepoint! wireless adapter offers solid support for console play

The adapter offers very solid performance, with no lag or dips in connection. Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence’s great online mode was tested on the PS2, and the game’s connection was fluid and showed no breaks. Halo 2 was tested on the Xbox (and, seriously, why wouldn’t it be?), and the game played very smoothly, which was a godsend considering the game’s fast pace and intense gameplay.

Best in Show Award

"Zoom’s new ATAs are focused squarely on the needs of Internet Telephone Service providers and their customers, with excellent performance at an extremely competitive price. In addition, Model 5801’s TelePort feature opens up new markets to service providers with an easily implemented solution to E911. Our new ATAs are also designed for integrators of SIP-based PBX systems, including the popular Asterisktm IP PBX."

"It's been over 3 1/2 years since I wrote this review, and I'm still using my Zoom 3049 as my only modem"

"The V3 is a multiuse device that works with either ADSL or a Cable Modem as a 4-port switching hub, router and firewall; it has a a phone jack for VoIP functionality. It gets by 911 issues by allowing a phone set to use either the regular Public Network or the Internet."

SmartComputing Magazine

"Installing and configuring the X5v to work with your existing DSL connection is relatively trouble free, particularly with Windows XP. After the setup, the modem worked flawlessly.....in our tests all VoIP calls were clear and strong, and in some cases, served better signals than those available using POTS. Keeping track of your calls via the Global Village site is also a nice touch, letting you see missed calls in addition to your outgoing and incoming calls."

Internet Telephony Magazine
Editors Choice Award

"Installing the X5v was a breeze, especially when using the Quick Start step-by-step guide - a true plug and play experience. The WEB interface was extremely easy to navigate. The phone port is an intelligent relay that allows an analog phone to place and receive both VoIP calls and calls over the PSTN. PSTN Fail-Over allows the X5v to automatically route calls over the dial-up phone network when power is lost. When using emergency dialing services like 911, it will route over the PSTN thus negating the need for E911. One unique aspect of Zoom's product is there is no monthly commitment - you don't have to pay a monthly fee for unlimited VoIP calling."

January 2005
TrustedReviews

"The most impressive aspect of the X5v is the quality of the VoIP calls. All calls were crystal clear. The ZoomTel X5v is the first affordable VoIP solution to arrive at TrustedReviews."

"This is a clever stystem that can make VoIP as simple to use as your standard telephone - you don't even need to have your computer turned on."

The Independent Review

"The sound quality is great....though it looks just like any other ADSL modem, the X5v carries the seeds of a revolution - one which threatens the phone companies ancient billing models."

November 2004
Digital Connect

"Home integrators looking for the next big opportunity need look no further than VoIP. The Zoom X5v includes a subscription to Global Village, a VoIP phone service that's fast and easy to implement. Zoom's converged solution brings Internet access, VoIP service and standard telephone access together in one device."

"I found the modem to be extremely easy to set up and very reliable...it nicely fills a gap that still exists in this connected world."

"Setting up the modem is a breeze...it took less than 2 minutes from unwrapping the box to be online. It constantly gave me 53Kbps connections to the internet...even at distances up to 70 meters between the modem and PC."

Dingbat "Cool Tools"

"Best known for their superior modems, ZOOM has a whole line of inexpensive digital cameras. Our favorite is the portable USB DualCam1300 which is both still and video camera. Use it as a Web cam, or take it on the road. We particularly like the addition of a handy Pan-and-Tilt tripod and easy camera-suite software from ArcSoft. And hey, they even include batteries. If you're new to digital photography, you can't go wrong with this very snappy package from ZOOM."

"Why am I so enthusiastic about this Bluetooth product? Because it worked straight out of the box in less than three minutes... after using this Bluetooth modem for a week for the freedom of being connected anywhere in the house, I can certainly recommend it. It not only has benefits for travelers with laptops or PDA's but for small office and home office users too."

December 2003
Home Office Reports

"The Zoom modems support all the standards you'd like and add VERY nice extras like surge protection, power protection, automated adaptation of the modem to a country's phone system, voice mail systems with multiple mailboxes - and much, much more! The Bluetooth product looks like a real winner to us. We highly recommend products from this company."

TMC Labs - Internet Telephony Editor's Choice Award

" ...we were pleased to learn about the Zoom Dialer device that simply connects to your phone line and provides 'Store and Forward Least Cost Routing (LCR)' capabilities. The dialer automates this process by allowing the customer to simply dial the 11-digit phone number they wish to reach. The dialer stores the user-dialed number and then automatically dials the 800 number, waits and listens for a voice prompt, then dials the PIN number. Lastly, the dialer forwards the user dialed number. By taking advantage of their "store and forward" capabilities, the dialer can perform least cost routing as programmed by the operator of the software."

The Prepaid Press - on the Zoom Dialer

"The Prepaid Press was recently sent a prototype of the Zoom Dialer EZ to try out. I must admit, for anyone whose primary method for home-based long distance calling is via a prepaid phone card, it is a no brainer. The Zoom Dialer EZ takes the effort out of phone card use. Aside from the slight delay that is associated with the passing of the digits, the calls completed seamlessly.

The neatest feature about the Dialer 24 is Zoom's patented parallel technology. This allowed me to plug in the dialer behind my bedroom phone and yet it still worked from all of my other phones.

GameZone Online - on the Zoom X4 ADSL Modem/Router/Gateway

"This is a wonderful device that really allows players the option of avoiding swapping lines every time they wish to transition from playing online with a computer and/or console to another system. Yes, this is a device that has great practical applications to networked systems that are not involved in online gaming. But if you are one of those who have several platforms with online capability, this is the router that you want to use. It is affordable and solves the problem of spending time with the dust bunnies while you switch lines around to activate different units.

The protection afforded by the system is wonderful, but the way that this unit allows for multiple platforms to route through it is the real draw.

And as far as reliability is concerned, the system has been going strong 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for several weeks without a failure, and no slowdown in moving from one platform to another for online play."

mygamer.com - on the Zoom X4 ADSL Modem/Router/Gateway

"My pleasure level went through the roof after I installed the Zoom X4....the Zoom X4 far exceeded my expectations...it's performance and options put it a far step ahead of the competition."

Webuser Gold Award - 5 Stars

The Zoom ADSL modem is a good all-rounder that comes with everything you need included, is easy to set up and use and performs perfectly once you've got it going.

Envy News

Zoom, owner of the famous Hayes modem namesake, has been making quality connectivity hardware for several years. They have a wide range of broadband and narrowband hardware that is geared for longevity and functionality. The modem in this review is no exception. The 3049C modem, a serial-driven controller-based modem, is the latest in this line. It combines v.92 and v.44 standards with patented ZoomGuard™ lightening and voltage protection to provide the best possible to solution for people that would enjoy the latest in technology without having to mess around inside their cases. The Model 3049C has a sleek look, great features, and acceptable performance. The modem has an easy to learn diagnostic light display, hooks up easily to a serial port without taking up another IRQ, and doesn't hamper overclocking like some PCI cards have been known to do. The only issue is one not even involved with the modem itself — lack of widespread v.92 connection options. When you take all of this into account, from design to performance to features, this modem is definitely a value for those that live in range of v.92 enabled ISPs.

Photographic Magazine

One of the most popular Webcams is Zoom's Model 1598 USB camera. The ZoomCam is designed to capture excellent video in low-lit situations where additional lighting is not feasible. This ability makes it ideal as a surveillance camera. Although it supports a snapshot mode where individual frames can be saved, the ZoomCam really shines as a video conferencing device.

November 2002
www.computerBob.com - Zoom Model 3049 V.92/V.44 external modem

"The Zoom 3049c is very solidly built modem that performs exactly as advertised. It was easy to install and included optional software for sending/receiving faxes directly from your computer and using the modem for voice mail, plus it also included software for image editing, preventing pop-up advertisements, and signing up for America Online (which I don't recommend). I highly recommend the Zoom 3049c modem to anyone who's looking to replace their older modem with a newer, faster one; to anyone who wants to save time when they do uploads and downloads; and to anyone who wants or needs the Modem on Hold feature. Now that I've completed this review, I'm going to uninstall my older internal V.90 modem, and make the Zoom 3049c my only modem."

Byte Magazine

"Zoom makes a neat line of modems and this is one of them. The Zoom USB modem is the first decent USB Modem that I've tried."

September & October 1999
PC World

According to PC World Magazine, the Zoom FaxModem 56K Dualmode Model 2919 "remains king of the internal modems for a second month running."

Zoom's new Lucent chip set-based, ISA card fax modem appeared as the "Best Buy" heading the magazine's "Top 10 Modems" list in both the September and October issues. PC World has regularly recognized Zoom's external and internal for PCI modem models as top performers.

Government Computer News

"The Zoom Fax/Modem is reliable and turns in steady, above-average performance."

Mac-Nut Magazine

"I'm impressed with the Zoom/FaxModem 56K USB. It works as advertised and is bundled with some great software. Zoom has made a name for itself by delivering reliable, affordable and compatible equipment to the market."

February 1999
IT Reviews

"As the name would cunningly suggest, these devices, of which this PC Card (formerly PCMCIA) device is one, support two separate technologies. In this case, the modems support K56flex and V.90."

July 1998
Boston Globe

"...I swapped out my old modem for a Zoom 56K Dualmode model. Zoom has done a great job with the voice compression on its hardware: The sound quality was as good as any voice-mail system I've ever used."

April 1998
MacWorld

Editor's Choice Award. "If your ISP prefers K56flex, go with the Zoom/FaxModem 56Kx. It absolutely screams and it has enough status LEDs to keep you amused for hours. Not only does Zoom have a long-standing dedication to the Mac, but its $139 Zoom/FaxModem 56Kx was able to achieve file downloads topping out at a blazing 55Kbps."

Boot

Bootworthy Award. "We dig those K56, Fax and MSG lights...There's something to be said for external modems: status lights! It's reassuring when the little blinking light indicates something is happening. And this little guy has no less than 14 LEDs. One potentially cool feature is that Plug-n-Play can be disabled on the internal version and the modem assigned up to COM8 - great for alternate operating systems or for anyone who needs a bit more control. Bundled with the seven-year warranty and flash-memory upgradability is Communicate! Lite software. Distinctive Ring routing and ZoomGuard lightning protection are also standard features. Videophone - ready, it supports ITU H.324-compliant software and the V.80 video standard, assuming you have the appropriate A/V hardware already. The internal speaker is a much appreciated addition."

March 1998
Consumers Digest

Best Buy Award. "This well-designed external modem is fairly easy to install and operate. It's a compact and well-designed peripheral (about the size of a paperback book) that wisely places the power switch up front. Upgrades and enhancements can be downloaded via the Internet. Also impressive is a seven-year standard parts-and-labor warranty. It's available for both PC and Macintosh."

PC Guiden (Sweden)

"When it comes to Zoom Telephonics' modem, the Zoom 56Kx, probably the first thing you notice is the appearance. Only a few manufacturers really put much thought into the design of the modems and Zoom is one of these few. The installation of the modem is very straightforward. With regard to logging on, it is interesting to see how well the modem can handle a poor quality line. It works terrifically. Furthermore, we do not see any sign of the modem losing speed after being logged on for a while, a thing that often happens with other modems. The rates we get in our tests for the Zoom modem show a speed around 44 Kbps. Another positive detail is the indicators on the front of the modem, where not only can you see if you are logged in etc., but also if you are logged in on a 33.6 or 56K line."

Zoom Ships K56flex FaxModems with Programmable DSPs

"Zoom Telephonics has announced that it has begun high-volume shipments of K56Flex fax modems featuring flash memory for down-loading updates for all modem code, including Controller and Digital Signal Processor (DSP) code. Zoom has a DSP that is updated from flash memory instead of being hard-coded. This means that all modem code, both DSP code and Controller code, can be easily modified by the user with simple software commands without touching the modem. This makes it easy to make sure the modem code is the latest and greatest, and to add features including possible upgrades to future standards."

American Facsimile Association

The Zoom/FaxModem 56Kx was named the "Best of Fax" faxmodem by the American Facsimile Association (AFAXA) in the January 30, 1998 Awards Issue of its FAXFocus newsletter. "Solid performance modem. Message waiting light confirms faxes without the need for users to check the fax software for confirmation, extended status reporting with 14 LEDs (Status Indicator Lights), lightning and surge protection, and a seven-year warranty."

The Zoom Telephonics Inc. 56K PC Card was the clear overall winner, with a solid performance in every environmental condition to which we exposed it. This was a very solid performance and enough to earn the Zoom a Best of LAN Times award."

ZD Internet Magazine - Zoom 56Kx Wins "Net Best" Award

"The 56K modems from Zoom Telephonics (Boston) performed solidly across the board. They were easy to set up, and they include a seven-year warranty. Both modems have cellular phone support (MNP 10), which no other modem we tested can claim. Both modems include operating system support for DOS, Windows 3.x, 95, and NT. They ship with Communicate!, which is one of the better fax and communications packages available. The external modem also supports the Macintosh. The Zoom modems are a good choice from any angle."

Zoom/FaxModem 56K

"Zoom Telephonics is known for packing extras into its external modems that other vendors pass on, such as lots of status lights. Its K56flex models, the internal Zoom/FaxModem 56K and the external Zoom/FaxModem 56Kx, continue to please in every area.

That's right, the Duo has an RJ-45 jack for the integrated NT-1 ISDN U interface, plus an RJ-11 telephone jack. A copy of Cheyenne Bitware F/D/V software provides complete analog support, including the voice mailbox capabilities, making the Duo a complete small-office solution. The Owner's Manual is complemented with a handy Quick Start Guide. Flash memory allows for future upgrades. The Duo also comes with a telephone handset you can mount on the side of a monitor or other convenient spot. The Duo is a great TA that literally does it all."
