Personally, I'd go the eBay route.  Seem to be a bunch available
for $10 versus $50 for the new RS2 from Griffin. The hardware is
probably close to a single-chip design so what you're paying
Griffin for are device drivers and application software that
you're not even going to use.  Additionally, as a niche hack
without public documentation (at least I haven't found any),
I find it's better to be on the trailing edge of hardware.

Beyond that, it's whether you want Commode White (RS) or
Glossy Black (RS2) :-)
