confusing is understatement

Zonk, is there a Respironics comparison chart?

I'm thinking about putting together a spreadsheet of all of these machines then making it a wikipage or for download.

Using the links above, I could find either a side-by-side comparison or could click one then another then gather data from there. I couldn't find a way to do either of this with Respirionics.
