Which one to buy: 8258 vs 9397

edited March 2012 in Buying & Selling Topics
I want to buy either 8258 or 9397.

Now 8258 is no longer available in shops and I have buy from Ebay at an inflated price (£180 or so).

But I can buy the 9397 for £99 from shops.

Now my question is whether it is worth paying that much for 8258. Does 9397 differ significantly from 8258 in terms of feature/function and playability?

    Same here. It's just got some appeal the latter doesn't have.

    personal preference, isn't it? Which one do you like better? If it's the 8258, do you like it more by enough to justify paying double what you would pay for the 939?

    Ultimately, only you can answer this question.

    Does 8258 offer any functionality which is not there in 9397?

    I don't think threads like these are allowed but I'd go with 9397.
