Hi Glen, I like the button layout on the 3X players better too. It isn't
really a joystick, it's a square, with a button in the middle. It's not as
proud as that on the 1X players too, so it isn't so critical if you forget
to put the hold on.

I think this has something to do with the fact that the H120 and H140 are no
longer available, unles you buy second-hand. They have been discontinued.
All the best

I know that the 300 series have 2 U S B ports, but aside from that, and the video capabilities, is there any other good reason to get one? The hard drives are the same size in the H120/140s , and the 300 series devices as far as I know. And many of us would not care for the better display, so are there any other features that might interest the Blind user? I know that some Blind users might like the video capabilities, for viewing with others, or maybe themselves, if they have some usable vision. But I am just wondering if they are getting the 300s because they are newer, and not realizing that the H120/140 may meet their needs as well for much less money? Maybe the 300 series models have features other than video that I would appreciate. I would like better video myself, but I would not care to pay substantially more fore it.
