I am considering purchasing a US Robotics Courier Modem to compare to my Lucent Modem. I've been told that the Courier is holy and all, but these same people swear up and down that Winmodems are crap (which is absolutely not true, many winmodems are excellent in performance). I've also been told by others that the Courier sucks and to stick to my Lucent. So, does anyone have a Courier that they can compare to a Lucent?
I'm more interested in latency than connection speed, by the way. A Trace Route comparison would be nice, as I'd like to see what the delay to the first hop is.

I own a Courier, USR Sportster & Lucent Win Modem.
The USR Sportster performs a tad better than the Courier, and both USR's perform a tad better - in most cases - than the LT. I measure the performance by throughput, reliability of connection, etc. as opposed to latency.
I would say however, that it's my belief that the LT is better at short bursty data than both USRs - so for gaming, I think the LT would perform better.

Well could you humor me by providing a latency comparison?
