How does this synthesizer sound?

The DecTalk on Mobile Speak as demonstrated on MainMenu sounds very sad, but the one with Freedom Box sounds pretty good. I wonder if linux even can use the USB kind, but I thought it had a serial port that worked with the normal express driver you could probably get away with.

  I'm sitting here, thinking of buying a dectalk usb from gwmicro to use with windows, my linux box, and my ms-dos machine.

  However, I want to know how does it sound before I buy it, so that it doesn't sound like dectalk runtime for linux, because I think it sounds awful in comparition with the dectalk  access 32.

  So if any of you have a such synthesizer, could you tell me how it sounds, or even better put together a short demonstration, and e-mail it to me?
