I'd think you'd prefer this kind of modem because the newer PCI bus should give better data transfer between modem and computer, than would an ISA bus.
I suspected some PCI modems existed, presenting itself merely as a puc(4) compatible device, but I have never seen one until now.

Thanks, for sake of completeness.. can anyone recommend non-softmodem PCI devices besides this 3com beauty?
