Well, I asked about these not too long ago on the list, and some folks  
boo-hooed them. To me, they seem similar to the Iomega offering, except  
for the fact that I know that these are upgradable. Do you happen to  
know the difference between the models? There's a 4100 and a 4200, and  
the only difference I can see is the initial capacity.
