It really shouldn't make that much difference, but I'd probably wait for the USB version. You only have a limited number of serial ports, and adding more is a PITA (mainly because it would probably take up a PCI slot). You can add a lot of different USB devices just by adding hubs.
If I had to guess (hint--Cliff please confirm) the remote itself is probably the same--the only difference is how it connects to your computer.
