Anyone have experience with the TASCAM USB-428?

I'm in the market for a new DAW interface (PC-based) for use with Cubase. 
I was toying with the USB device TASCAM has on the market to get the 
control surface aspect as well as getting analog and digital i/o into my 

I've heard negative rumors re: using USB for audio hence my reluctance in 
popping for the USB-428. I've checked the Tascam and the Steinberg boards 
and saw the usual hardware platform-related and other problem situations. 
My PC rig should work fine with the unit, btw. 

I did see some, to me, high latency levels mentioned (e.g. 31 ms) though.

Any comments on this device? I DO like the girl using the 428 in the 
Tascam advertisements (although she looks a tad P.O.'ed at something. Hope 
it's not the USB 428).
