External modems do not use computer power supply or take up a valuable expansion slot. They can be connected to many different computers with standard cable and serial interface. Reviewed here are: the Hayes Smartmodem 1200 ($599); Novation 1200XE ($299); E & E Datacomm Avatex 1200 ($120); U.S. Robotics Courier 1200 ($499); and the Cermetek 1200 ($395). All these modems have the following features: an ability to switch between 300 and 1200 bps; auto dialing and auto answering; support of pulse or touch-tone dialing; support of single or multiline systems; and international calling. The Novation 1200XE is judged to be the best.
