    Skybox M3 VS Skybox F3

    Mixeshop now offers the Skybox M3 as well as the Skybox F3 for roughly $47 each plus shipping.

    Which model is the latest and which model is better? Brian recommended the Skybox F3, but the M3 also has a dual core processor and might actually be the latest model.

    The M3 looks like a new model of the S12. Ok, I might just need to order one.

    The f3 has wifi too. The m3 doesn't use a regular rs232 connector and is in a smaller plastic case. The f3 has a metal case with a clock display on the front. The f3 is almost as small as the m3. They both use the same fw. Just an FYI. The f3 has the same processor (m3601, 128mb ddr2 400 memory and 4mb flash). They were both introduced at the same time. Best use the latest fw on the f3 (5-10-2012) and by all means don't try to load any s9, s10, s11, s12, s16, etc. fw on the f3 or you will fry it. The f3 works great with the last fw release.
