Other than age, is there any significant difference between a series 2 that has a Service Number starting with 140 versus one that starts with 240? Technically is one preferred over the other?

Thanks

140:
Has mounts for two drives.
Cross flow fan, underneath exhaust.
Dedicated USB1.1 controller

240:
Has mount for one drive. Additional drive requires bracket kit.
Has rear exhaust fan
Dedicated USB2.0 controller.

FWIW 540:
Hardware set up like 240, except smaller board, and USB 2.0 port controller and video decoder is built into the CPU chip.

The 240 is preferred becasue of the dedicated USB2.0 controller.

So I guess with the 140 a wireless G USB controller would do you no good at all.. is that right? Due to the limitation of USB 1.1 limitation.

Thanks
