I've been using the 3000 for a couple of weeks now after upgrading from a 2000. I would say it is well worth it, especially since it can be found for $250 and the 2000 really haven't drop in price that much. There are still a few issues such as slow macro execution and inability to edit the far left and right hard buttons, but Philips is promising a fix for these soon. Even with these problems, I absolutely love the additional hard buttons and extra screen space.
Philips is promising a software (and probably another firmware) update soon to address some of the problems stickman mentioned. There is plenty of information on the Remote Central Pronto NG forum about this, but I find I like it much better than the 2000 I've used. You can also do some nice graphics due to the 16 greyscale levels. Also, don't forget the RF capability and the soon-to-be-available rechargeable battery/docking station.
