I have a powermac 8100/80 with a 14,4 modem and have had little luck
getting cuseeme to do much other than show me a choppy still or two and
then freeze up the system. I'm told that it's time to upgrade to a 28,8
if I want to use cuseeme at all well.

question: what is the difference between the "McSanctioned" Platinum Port
(28,8 v34) and the USRobotix 28,8? I know the Platinum port is optimized
for the Power Mac and would probably be easier to get up and running, but
is it going to give me the same speed as the USRobotix modem when the
chips are down? Any users of either (or both) that can pass along a
testimonial? Thanks...I hate buyers remorse!
