    The 200, 500, and 700 series. Which is best? Which has issues? Or is there no real difference? Thanks

    Might take a little while before the quality differences are discovered....especially since most households will only have 1 hr44 to compare to.

    Historically, Pace has always been pretty popular around here. Don't know that they truly are better however. My HR34 was the first box I've had that wasn't a -100.

    Thanks. Let me ask a different question. So if there are 3 versions, I assume the 'spec' (ie motherboard layout, cpu, etc) are all identical? So in theory, not counting possible issues/bugs, the performance aspect SHOULD be identical? Thx

    I don't know about differences on the 44, but there definitely have been differences on other boxes. Don't think speed was one of them, but things like ports, colorspace etc.
