Yes, I put them there. Good finding Smile

Perhaps the 2nd option is best, as it's the most consistent.

Thanks! But instead of copying the content from the Goldstar FC-200 I would only have put the note in it similar to: "This is identical to Goldstar FC-200, see there" and add the picture with the AVT branding. Copying information is a source of trouble and very hard to maintain, in my experience.

It's not a problem for me (to maintain pages with almost the same content).

In this case, I had to change some things in the specifications as the Goldstar page speaks also about the non-PAL model for France. And other small changes because it's a prototype (and probably only one exemplar!!!)

And more generally, imagine the frustration of the end-user with an almost empty page linking to a more complete page. I've never been satisfied with the solution adopted for the Sony and Toshiba machines, although it has some coherence (all machines released under the same brand with a very similar reference). I should even say that this solution has been choosen only to please you, at least for the Sony machines.

I don't want to extend this solution to computers that are almost the same but released under several brand names (in the case of the Daewoo DPC-200, there are so many variants, with even the RAM that is not always in the same slot, without forgetting the special Arabic version!!!).

I'm not sure if it's a prototype. But it seems likely. I read that you noticed that it still has a CODE LED! Well spotted! A good hint that it's indeed a prototype.

I'm mostly worried about other people than you who spot a flaw and make an edit. These people are not aware of the other copies and will most likely forget to edit the duplicated information.
I understand not everything is the same, but the common things... I still think it's better to refer to the base version.

No, the 'defintive' version (Goldstar FC-200) has also this code led!

As the AVT FC-200 has not been commercialy released, I think it's a prototype just like the also exposed Philips VG-8240 for example.

Most of the time I notice it and update the eventual other pages. This day I noticed that Grauw had enhanced the page about Clugguide Magazine 05. I've made the same changes on the pages for the 4 previous diskmagazines and will later integrate these changes for all other diskmagazines, not only the Genic Clubguides!
