I want to hear your opinions!
Lets just stick to the standard models -- no cheating with the CDX or something :)

While I own two model 2's and like the model 2 for its stereo sound output, I actually prefer the model 1 in terms of its design. I just prefer the power switch and reset button on the model 1, as they're designed better than those on the model 2 and are less prone to malfunctioning. (I have a model 2 whose reset button is somehow just completely screwed up.) I own a single model 1, which I have yet to even hook up. (I recently found it, thanks to your Craigslist article.)

When I was gaming on a mono-TV long, long ago, I preferred the model-1 because I could hook up some little stereo speakers.

The 2nd version is what I like best 'cause the styling is nice and balanced and it's significantly smaller and lighter (while still keeping stereo sound - unlike the Genny3).

Model 1 has always been my favorite. I never had the model 2, but I remember when it came out I thought it was pretty ugly. To get stereo sound I just use the mixing cable into my sega cd and then use the rca cables from it to my sound system.

I love the look of model one and because of the headphone option, but overall I have to go with model 2.

I have a model 2 now but I honestly miss my Model1, being able to use headphones was nice and it had a much more "retro" feel to it. Welp take what you can get I suppose.

Overall I like the model 2 best. I like the design of the model 1, but my genny is always hooked up to my model 2 sega cd and together they look sleek. The model 2 does seem more flimsy, but the one I use is my girlfrieds and she's had it since it came out. It loads games on the first try every time. Plus I like the little red light between the power and reset buttons, it's a nice touch.
