Hi, can anyone tell me what is the difference between the Topfield 5500 PVR and the Topfield 5000 PVR *Masterpiece* apart the difference in apperance?

Is the Masterpiece the newer model? Is it worth the extra money?

Also, is it possible to buy either the 5500 or the Masterpiece without any hard disk? I'm concernd about the noise level and consider inserting a samsung's HD. I believe they are quieter than seagate's ones.

Thanks

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

:-welcome to the forum tom77

On the face of it they are very similar models with the exception that the 5500 has embedded conax but there is more info and some good links here just click on Topfield
