New 557 or used 535/537?

I have had an mdr535 for a couple years. I use the hdd almost every day mostly for time-shifting, from which I occasionally burn dvds. I haven't had any problems with it and I am looking to buy a second unit. I note from previous posts here that there are apparently significant differences between my 535 and the latest 557 model. Do those differences (some of which I do not fully understand) reduce the basic functionality of the unit? Is the new model "cheaped down" in any sense? Should I buy a new 557, or would I have better luck with a used or refurbed 535/537 on Ebay?

Also, is there a way to transfer contents of the hdd to an external hdd? (I don't mean removing and replacing the internal drive, I mean plugging in a cable and pressing buttons, as you would with a PC.)
