which is better HP/Agilent 37711A T1 tester or CTC Phoenix 5575A T1 Micro Bert test set

Hi.  Looking at Ebay, I'm seeing a couple of T1 testers out there.  One is a HP/Agilent 37711A T1/Datacom Test Set OPT001,002,004 and the other a CTC PHOENIX 5575A T1 MICRO BERT TEST SET W/5564 CH MON
I was wondering which of these would be the better unit to purchase.
Thanks.

If you are solely going to be testing T1's from a "Demarc" standpoint, its seems the Phoenix Model 5575A T1 Micro Bert has alot better options for error insert, and patterns, along with framing support. It would help to know your exact intentional usage for it to better decide which unit is best suitable. Hope this helps.

I would be using it to help determine if a problem is ours or not.

I meant... as like your job function... Are you an outside tech? Working in a Head-end? Or a Telco CO, etc?
