Good morning cruiserjohn. Here is a link that has a good comparison table:

A lot of folks swear by the newer models for their features.
I have been running two ET-73's for years and use them both simultaneously at times during cooks.
I do not need all of the functions the new ones offer I just want to know my grate and meat temp.
So for me the older less expensive ET-73 gets my vote.

A 3! Wink Laughing Wink

Or an extra 660, depending on your point of view!

I treat the "Range" claims with a pinch of salt, but then I don't use them for more than 20 or 30 yards at the best of times.

the range is not that important either. Do they make a model that you can monitor more than one piece of meat at a time? Lets say chicken and pork or beef>

I am not aware of one that has three probes in an economical price range.
I also use digital meat probes I buy from Academy, they work well and have a loud alarm. They are not dual probed or remote but they allow me to monitor panned briskets or Butts while the ET-73's are monitoring other stuff.

I have an ET-73. It has problems staying synced when I bring the portable unit inside my brick house which leads to some frustration even though there is it is only 20 to 30 feet away from the cooker. It might stay synced better if I was in a frame house where the walls are less dense (don't know for sure). I have read reviews of others that do say the newer models have better range even though Maverick is probably overestimating it. I will probably replace my ET-73 a newer model at some point.
