Hi folks,

Anyone own one of the above and could give me some feedback as to which to choose?
Is there any real significant differences between the two?

The screens are mostly the same but neither for me has enough capacity for a big trip. The 6000 is only 80GB and the 7000 is 160 GB.

In the old days of the P5000 that was nearly impossible. Some folks were able to hack a copy of the drive (all the driver software was on the hard drive) but the way Epson put the thing together made it very tough to do. I haven't tried with one of the new ones, I am using a Vosonic with a 750 GB drive since I couldn't find a 9mm thick TB drive.
