As far as I know, the service I wanted would give me 256U/64D. So really the most the PC would be able to pull down is 30 Kb/s maximum.
Can you please tell me the performance differences between the USB unit and the Ethernet? I want to know if $100 is justified in performance.

They will produce the same performance speeds as long as they are both 100mb. The difference is the ease of installation. USB is easier to install than the Ethernet.
