SG2100 is an outdated motor with plastic gears. It's been obsolete for a couple years now.

The PowerTech SG9120/SG9120B is the latest Ku motor on the market and the best so far. It's got all metal gears so it's stronger and more durable.

SG9120 is for 1.2m dishes with its 55mm shaft, and the SG9120B has a 42mm shaft for 90cm dishes
