Looking to purchase a modem

Best has PR: Connections for $79.95, or 850s for $125. (both new)

 

B&C has them both for $74.95, but their 850s are reconditioned.

 

 

Or you can ask around and see if someone has a homemade R:Verter cable that would also let you use any Hayes compatible modem - or make your own: https://atrey.karlin.mff.cuni.cz/~pavel/atari/rvert.html

One advantage of the P:R: Connection is that it is capable of 19,200 BAUD(at least from what I have read), the maximum for the 850 is 9,600.

 

The PRC is basically a slimmed down 850, eliminating 2 of the 4 serial ports, and drawing power from the SIO port.

It was even designed to use the same serial/parallel cables as the 850.

I highly doubt the P:R: connection can do 19200 reliably, just like the 850. I don't have one anymore to confirm, but I vividly remember that being a big advantage when I got an MIO - it could do full 19200, and even added hardware flow control with the right handler.
