Right.

It's much better then most supposedly 9600 ready rigs
but it still (I've heard) doesn't do as well as something
like a converted commercial rig.

I've been trying since the DCC introduction in 1999 to get somebody
to run some simple ping tests with it and other rigs.  It
would be good to have real numbers for comparison.  I can't say
too much now since I have access to a D700 with a KPC-9612 and
could run the tests myself.

It all just takes so much time...
