Both the 650 and 660 are known to be way buggier than their "lower-line" 450-550 and 460-560 sisters (something funky in the SATA). The only real advantage they had was the 250GB over the 160GB in the lesser units, otherwise all six recorders were identical for all practical purposes. The 450 had no DV or USB inputs, the 460 did, only difference.
The 660 was the only one of the six with an ethernet port that *allegedly* allowed it to network to a PC for DiVX, MP3 and JPEG file import. But few owners ever got it to work: it requires a specific revision of Windows thats long been auto-patched a thousand times over. And it wouldn't let you move any videos from the 660 to the PC, just PC to 660. I might consider paying $400 for sealed new 660, but not a penny more. The seller asking $2,524.99 is dreaming, and what an oddly specific price: maybe its what he owes on his car?
