I have been using a USR 3595 (OEM) WinModem and have been very happy with it, although it is not listed as a modem upgradeable to v.92 -- I was given a Smart Modular modem over the weekend that uses the Agere Mars chipset, and Smart says it will be upgradeable to v.92. My question is which of these modems is best? I have used USR for years, but the upgrade thing really has me a bit bugged...

I need to clarify -- The Lucent is a Mars 3 chipset, not a regular Mars...

It depends upon how you measure 'best'; and, if performance is a factor, ratings will vary with phone line conditions and the server modems you connect to.
Personally, I'd choose the Lucent over USR.
