I am going with my dad this weekend to pick up a JP610 (TP1300 also), both look like they are orange but not positive. I have one that is about 2 years old that I really like, but I have not seen any recent posts about one. Have they made any changes in the last 2 years. Are the ones in the stores now built by Emerson or the new manufacturer. We picked up a TS 3650 for him 2 weeks ago and I was actually very impressed with it in comparison to my TS 2424 (which I still love BTW). If anyone has objective opinions about the current 610 I would like to hear it.
