    The above link will help you identify the age of the rig.

    Older SVP Pro don't use this type of serial numbering, as I inquired about one on eBay and the guy gave me a 5 digit serial that didn't correlate to anything.

    Personally, I think I would opt for the newest one... they change these things for a reason, and usually for engineering improvements and bug fixes.
