FS-5 v2.0 vs. MR-HD100?

Hello all.
I'm looking to replace my DR-HD100 for my JVC HD100 and am wondering what the difference is between the FS-5 and the MR-HD100 in how it works with the JVC cameras. The thing I like about the FS-5 v2.0 is that you can view your footage right on the device. It doesn't appear that the MR-HD100 does this. Also, the 60G FS-5 is $1k whereas the MR-HD100 is $2500.

If it's just the fact that the MR-HD100 is co-branded by JVC, that doesn't seem like a big deal to me.

So can someone who's used either with a JVC let me know their experience? Or if there's a Focus rep in here, I'd love to hear the story on which one is better for me.

Thanks.

Well, I got a response from the videoguys.com. Really quick response from them. They said that I have to use the MR-HD100 version with the JVC cameras. Just in case anyone else was curious.
