I realize information has been posted on the pocketdish, as I did a search and have gone through the postings. I just want to ask for a little update, as I'm considering purchasing one of these, and figure by now a great deal more people have them. Would you mind posting your opinion regarding size and features? I am considering the mid-size (500e) due to the pocket size convenience, but then again see the price difference between that and the 700 is not that much anymore, particularly with the rebates offered. The 700 advertises stereo speakers compared to it looks like one speaker on the 500. I also read somewhere that the 700 has a stand. Is the picture quality the same on both the larger models? Thanks for any information.
