    You need to make sure that it fits in your existing LNB clamp on the dish arm if it's for an existing dish.
    There's very little between them as Nick pointed out , especially for just looking at normal broadcast channels (as opposed to links and feeds).

    The specifications that matter to real "dish-heads" like myself are noise figure, gain , local oscillator stability and phase noise ; however all low to moderate cost LNBs usually specify the above as a "typical" figure only with no maximum or minimum - making the specs pretty useless in reality.

    (couldn't resist that little rant , feel better now).
