also keep in mind that what you're proposing is not only 2 different brands but two different input types (buttons vs touch). I once had this type of arrangement and I was always touching the button unit's screen when trying to adjust it. it's a pain to go back & forth from touch to buttons. if all your mfd's are button then it's not nearly as bad.

If you're good w/the button interface then I would agree w/Jim...bite the bullet and get the 2 840xs. the nss8 still has value so with the super low cost of the 840xs you're net cost won't be too bad.
