Technology & You: NSTL'S RECOMMENDED BUYS
MOTOROLA ISG & BLACKBOX 3400
Motorola ISG V.3400
Black Box Modem 3400
Other strong performers include entries from Black Box Corp. and Motorola ISG Inc. Both modems are steady performers in both ideal and less-than-ideal conditions (the Modem 3400 fails only one TIA line; the V.3400 passes all the lines). Only features and usability differentiate the two: the Black Box modem has more features, but Motorola's offering has much better documentation. With a list price of $895 for both modems, however, only two other modems in the testbed cost more.
