    Why not get one of the MP2000 that has been upgraded to a 2100? The
backlight on my MP2100 was getting dim so I bought one of the GEM uMP2100
units which were selling for less than a real MP2100. Other than the
cosmetics the machines are the same. I'm using the uMP2100 now and keeping
the MP2100 as a backup. And it didn't involve any disassembly (other than to
remove my SER-001 from the 2100 and install it in the 2000).
