Trade MPC2000xl for MPC1000?

I have a MPC2000xl, built in Zip250, upgraded memory. I like the MPC1000, mainly because of its size, and I am constantly in need of room (I am currently a college student in an apartment). Are there any serious reasons that I should NOT switch from a 2000xl to a 1000? Thanks!

I was the same. 2000XL > 1k specifically for the 'physical size'.

I love the CF cards. I HATED zips.

I miss sample audition before loading (in the 2k).

The 2k is a little easier to navigate IMHO, but its a minor point.

1k is cool.

Why not just get the 2000XL Muti Card Drive?

a producer i was working with bought one, but had trouble transfering sounds from his zips (he did production at another studio that had a 2KXL). i.e., no zip drive or SCSI ports on the 1K. he ended up trading it in and getting a 2KXL in the end.

I've got a MPC 1k and i'm more than satisfied. It's great!
And if i got it right there's no big difference between the 2kXL and the 1k (when updated with the new OS).
If i had and 2kXl i wouldn't trade it, cuz it's more classic, and got bigger pads (i think).
But if i aint had no MPC at all i would pick the 1k (like a did).

It's just a matter of feel, cuz there's no big difference.
