    Hey guys,
    This is a question directed to the moderators. Do any of you guys know of when the HR22 first look will come out? I always find reading those so interesting and would really like to know more about the small differences between the HR21 and HR22. Thanks! :)

    Not sure that a First Look is planned for the HR22. As previously mentioned, it's essentially an HR21 with a bigger hard drive.

    No, I thought I mentioned this previously in the threads, but if not I know that I mentioned it privately to some folks.

    We will not be doing a First Look on the HR22. The only thing that is different between the HR22-100 and the HR21-100 is that the HR22 has a larger HDD. There is not much else to say than that.

    Was the thread about the HR22 introduction ever added as a headline on the front page?

    Is there a First Look at the internal pics for the HR22-700 and the HR22-200 models?

    If not then are there some internal HR units that are exactly identical to the HR22-700 and HR22-200 in terms of exact duplicate hardware ?

    I don't think anyone from here participated in an HR22 trial.

    There is a first look for the HR21-100 - which is exactly identical to the HR22-100 so that is why a first look wasnt done.

    But what about the HR22-700 and Hr22-200 models?

    Are you saying they are known to be exactly identical in their internal hardware motherboard layout?

    Such as HR22-700 does equals the HR21-700 ?

    And the HR22-200 does equals the HR21-200 ?

    I havnt seen that stated yet.

    If we tell you "YES" will you believe oh ye of little faith
    If not buy 1 of each outright so you own them, take them apart and post pics.

    Why confuse the situation? Are you saying you know that they are exactly alike?

    If you do not know the answer please do not post.

    Here's a useful reply:

    There's no functional difference between any model HR21 and the HR22, regardless of manufacturer, except for the larger hard drive. This is the same info that others have posted earlier in this thread. You are free to keep asking, but the answer seems to be the same every time. Draw what conclusions you will from that.

    Thanks for the information.

    But the previous poster gave no direct answer, that is obvious.

    I found the actual facts about the original question through a dealer.

    Thanks
