Oh, yeah. It looks quite good. Gamers like them because the latency can
be quite low. Was a piece of cake to install, and you can get 6 of these
into a system internally (assuming you can use the driver/module that way).

The modem costs $6-10 wholesale. Prolly $20 retail. I'm not sure about
using the module for more than one, though. I only have one to play with.
Came out of a customer's system today because he thought it was defective.
"Defective" stuff always seems to work on Linux, though - because it's not
defective, just their Windows is messed up.
