Thanks!! I had the new one as my personal tablet and got a cheap original modem off Craigslist for the install. When I started setting the old one up, I found it to be very slow compared to the new one. The screen resolution of the new one was also much better, so I decided to use the new one instead since I really didn't use it much.

There are two downsides to the new one:

- The USB port cannot be relocated as easily as the older model, so I have the cable sticking out on the side (which makes the passenger vent non-functional)

- The screen is polarized and is pretty much impossible to see with my polarized sunglasses. I don't think the older model was that bad.

Other than that, Timur has a kernel for it so I have the same deep sleep and USB DAC functionality. I love it.
