If by AUTO you mean the Newt powering on when you insert the dongle, that's a function of the interconnect port which, to be honest, I've never used. If I remember correctly this feature is still available with the SER-001 installed if you use a dongle, but I haven't found a need for the dongle since installing the SER-001.

The original SER-001 could come loose and stop functioning, but the REV B is screwed in and is unlikely to disconnect except under force that would render the whole Newt junk. The original also was a bit larger and the Newt case could have a bump on the back in some cases.

I haven't had any problems with the SER-001 REV B I purchased and just bought a second one for my backup Newt. I've tested the SER-001 with serial and AppleTalk connections to computers, Newton Print Pack, Newton keyboard, serial to infrared AppleTalk adapters, serial inkjet and laser printers and various modems and had ZERO problems.
