I've used both a Fibronics K200 and a K320, but on a UNIVAC/Sperry/UniSys 1100
mainframe system. We bought the K200, and have a K320 on loan in a beta test
mode. Personally, I prefer the K200. It seems to have good performence, and
costs less than the K320. However, the K320 is "smart" and programmable. By
default, the K320 emulates a K200, but in the future can/could be upgraded to
do processing and offload the host. We don't need that capability.

We wrote our own TCP/IP implementation for the 1100 series; I have no
experience with the KNET package.
