You can check out the reviews or benchmarks at
ZDNet

If money is not an issue get the 3Com Courier V.Everything.

Boca Research Tidalwave: Fairly reliable but company has ceased to exist. Support for Windows2000 is therefore non-existent. Haven't encountered any problems when used.

Diamond Supra Express 56i: Good reviews overall. Considered one of the favorites by many people but like the Boca, company is history. Therefore no drivers for Windows2000 and such.

MultiTech: Sorry, not familiar with the company but at least they're still around.

well the multitech and the diamond both work fine in win2k pro. I just cant figure out a way to test each to determine which is better.

I think PC World did testings of modems from both of the companies.
It will be archived at their website so if you don't mind browsing...

I have the Diamond SupraExpress 56iSP ISA and it works great with Win2k. I also have a Zoom 2949 external that also works well.
