The MX-500 is a cut down of the MX-700. It's the same size as the MX-700, but uses an older button layout that some people prefer. It's missing the advantages listed uner #5 and #6, plus part of #3 (it supports fewer pages and you can't hide unwanted pages). It also lacks bundled PC software. It can't be fully configured as easily or as well for activities-based operation as the MX-700.

The MX-600 is just the version of the MX-500 with RF and an updated color scheme. If you're considering the MX-600, you might want to look at the URC-200 (pictured to right of MX-700), as it has the MX-700's layout, plus RF and more of the MX-700's features than the MX-600. It's also cheaper. Like the MX-500/MX-600, it doesn't include PC software for setup.

I updated the image in my previous post (click for larger) to include the MX-500.
