Novatel wireless ovation u727

The introduction of the Sprint Novatel Wireless Ovation U727 makes connection to the Internet more easily and the access of email, photos and the World Wide Web anywhere: inside or outside home where there is a decent signal. This hardware connects to the computer via USB and it also has an integrated microSD slot for storage.

U727, which weighs 1.1 oz, may not be the fastest USB modem, but it presents a compelling overall package. It’s unusually small and light for a USB modem. It has a dimension of 3.5 inches long and has a narrow width of just 1 inch and less 0.8 inch deep. It also has a flip-up loop antenna folds neatly into the end for travel, which works well at capturing signals.

The U727 is compatible with Windows Vista, XP, 2000; Mac OS and Linux OS. It plugs in to your computer’s USB port and is ready to go. It also has a monitor clip and extended USB cable, so you can clip the antenna to the notebook’s monitor to have better signal.

The USB727 has an average download speed of 691 kilobits per second and peaks of 1.35 megabits per second but has a low upload speed. The USB727 averaged 377 Kbps up, with peaks at 675 Kbps. In perspective, it was only 10 percent slower on uploads and downloads than the leaders in both of those categories.

Although this piece of wonder does give the users the satisfaction of connecting to the Internet no matter where they go, it is still advisable to stick with the home DSL for downloading big files because it is still faster.

The Ovation U727 by Novatel Wireless can be purchased from Sprint’s website for $79.99 after instant savings, mail-in-rebate and a two year agreement. Although, retail pricing on it is $279.99.
