    DEI 507T - Odd difference in parts

    Well I picked up a couple 507T's for a good price on ebay from a good dealer, recieved them today and noticed an odd difference.. see pics below.

    First difference: The clear one is made in taiwan, the black in china.
    Second difference: The clear one(taiwan) has a 3 amp fuse, the chinese model has a 1amp fuse.
    Third difference: On the sides of the module, the chinese has 4 toggle switches, the taiwanese has 3. Only difference is the 2002 model has option for 10 second or 120 second delay before arming sensor after alarm is armed.
    Fourth difference: The instructions are copyrighted different years.. The chinese black 4 switch is 2002, and the taiwanese clear 3 switch is 2000.

    Similarities: They both have the same fuse holder and wire gauge.








    Anyways, I was mostly curious as to which it would be more wise to use on my upcoming alarm install. I assume the 2002 model, I think I have sene an even newer model as well on ebay, are there any advantages to it over these two?

    Yea, im going to keep the black one, it has the timer option on it, will be nice for it to arm 10 secs after I arm the vehicle.
