Had a 56e PRO for 2 or 3 years, in 2 systems much fiddled with. Never fails, speeds always good (friends have thier ups and downs with other modems, very easy to install, useful having the LEDs on the front, not a bad price. And no, I don't work for Diamond!

Many people think that there is hardly any difference between any of the 56k modems. I used to feel the same way myself. Some months ago I had a 56k software modem (HSP it was), it was ok for surfing, emails, etc., but online gaming was virtually impossible. So finally I decided to upgrade, and I wanted an external modem, something pretty that sits beside my monitor just to make my pc look that bit more sophicticated. My know-it-all friend thought I was crazy, he told me it wasn't a very good idea to spend £60 on something I already had, I assured him that it would be much faster and because it was a hardware modem, it wouldn't slow everything else down ...

The title is the only way to describe this modem. Quite simply it is the best modem that money can buy. It is a sad fact that modems are a dying technology, but the supra express 56e is one of the few modems that stands out in this day of broadband. I myself am a heavy online gamer, so I have a rather good knowledge of ping times. Ping times are the time it takes for your modem to contact the server. Or if you dont want this modem for gaming, then it would reflect the time it takes to contact the server holding your requested web page. The supraexpress 56e can give you around 110 ping. which in ping terms is a little over one tenth of a ... Read the complete review

It was back in the days before I had my cable modem that I got a rockwell modem that started me off on the internet. I thought this was brilliant until I started playing Online Multiplayer games such as Counter Strike and I realised that my modem was not good as I had previously thought it was. So I looked around and I found out that external modems were much better becuase they dont use up the motherboards resources such as RAM or Processor. So i purchased the Supra Express 56e from Dabs (www.dabs.com) and it was delivered in two days and all I can say is WOW!!!! This thing increased my download speed to 6k a second from a previous 4k and my ping went from 200 to ... Read the complete review

The Supraexpress from Diamond Multimedia is an excellent modem. Offering speeds of up to 56K over a variety of line conditions this is a worthy addition to the modem ranks. The Supraexpress comes configured for voicemail, fax and internet connection and with a CD packed with software which can be used to enhance your communications experience. I always found that I received a good connection speed using my Supraexpress, which is incidentally designed specifically for Macintosh users(apparently) which is something of a novelty in today''s PC dominated world. The modem itself is black and has a hard sturdy feeling plastic outercasing which should (and ... Read the complete review
