Should I go for the 900 or go back with another 890?

I saw a lot of bad reviews for the 900 on CNET--wondering if those are valid? Also there are some great deals on the 890 right now. I have an older Universal MX-850 and am looking to replace that--problem is that has 6 RF transmitters and I am using 5 of them. The 890 only has 4. Do I just buy another RF base to make 8?

The 890's extender has four 3.5mm IR ports, but each cable has two emitters so each port controls two devices for a total of eight devices. If your devices are close then they can share ports in pairs. I think the emitters can reach about two feet apart where the cable splits.
The 900 uses those silly mini-blasters and only has two ports.
