This works with Windows 10 if you don't waste time trying to use the drivers on the disk included. You have to go to the manufacturer website, find the product listing, scroll down to the very bottom, and then download the zip file. The ReadMe PDF show how to install the drivers. It does not offer guidance on troubleshooting.
If you've never used a PC to fax before, you have to go to Control Panel > Phone and Modem and set up the configuration which the Windows Fax service uses. Don't try to setup the fax from this, as Windows Fax might not autodetect the plug and play at all. Must restart the PC for this to work. There's some blue indicator lights. I don't really pay attention to them so I don't have anything insightful for them.
-This modem is twice the cost as the cheapo ten buck modems (which ALSO worked fine for me on this 32 bit win 8 machine, but I can confirm they did NOT work on my 64 bit machine).
-The "two jacks" could be accomplished with a $1 telephone line splitter
-The "VOICE" component does NOT work on windows (higher than XP). Looking into this it seems this is a driver issue for Conexant chip sets. So it's not the modem's fault - but don't expect ANY voice tool to work (for example, while phonetray works great with this to HANG UP on callers, it cannot play a pre-recorderded message like "take me off your calling list". Also, you won't be able to use this modem for voicemail in windows).
I purchased this for a new desktop that didn't come with a built-in faxmodem, and my old PCI faxmodem won't work with PCIexpress slots.
- Two jacks, so I can keep the land-line phone next to the computer without needing a separate phone line splitter
- USB, so hopefully it will last until the next computer (and PCIe is obsolete)
- Installation was auto-detected by Windows 7
- Looks like caller ID is also supported

Just a follow-up to say the modem is still working fine. I really only use it sparingly and just for PC faxing, so I'm unsure how good the dial-up & data speeds are. However, It's still working for my needs.
