What is it?

FaxPipe: After initially recommending, and then getting hosed by Send2Fax (they significantly raised the prices, didn't let me know, made it hard to cancel and get a refund, didn't give a full refund), I was on the hunt for a replacement. I've been using FaxPipe now for several months, and can say it's everything I need and want in an electronic fax system.

faxpipe Who makes it?

AirCom LLC.

Why is it the killerest?

When someone  faxes you, you get a PDF attachment of the fax in an email.

To send a fax, you send an email with an attachment to a special email address, put the recipient fax number as the body of the message, and you're done.

You get a toll-free or local number.

Highly affordable.

There's isn't much to it, it's just what you need, and nothing you don't.

What could be improved?

Paying yearly on the lower tier plans isn't my favorite (although, not a big deal).

How much does it cost?

$48/yr for 25 pages/mo, $0.15 for more pages. Other plans.

What is it?

Send2Fax: An email based faxing service.

Send2Fax, LLC

Why is it the killerest?

All together now: "Efax sucks!" The idea is great, and they get a brownie for pioneering it into the public sector. But they also suck. They use a proprietary file format so you have to download their clunky spam ridden software to view faxes. Their customer support is atrocious. They are expensive ($12.95/mo + $0.20/page for toll free). Note: you can get free efax, but if your usage goes above the smallest amount (don't recall the limit) then they force you to upgrade, or they'll cancel your number. It's real cute.. But I'm not here to (only) rail on efax. Send2Fax is where it's at. With Send2Fax, they send (email) your faxes in PDF format. No stupid proprietary reader required. They are reasonably priced, and from what I've seen, reliable. They rule because they are everything good about efax, with none of the evil.

How much does it cost?

$1.95/mo + $0.15/page ($4.95 setup fee) billed from $20 deposits. More.


Demoted! Now recommending FaxPipe.
