Hi All. I keep seeing references in the forums and other groups about Gen 1 and Gen 2 models of the MES. I'm new to my MES, and I can't find any info that clearly outlines the differences between the Gen 1 and Gen 2. Everyone keeps recommending the Gen 1, but how do I know what I have? Sorry if this is a repeat question, I've looked all over and can't seem to find a simple explanation. Meijer had an MES on clearance for $199. over the weekend (wow, what a deal). The controls were on the top back. Mine are on the top front. Does that have anything to do with it?
