Don't know about the look being different. I suspect that it's going to
have to be some testing on  your part that will help you decide. 

On the other hand, if you are happy with the performance of your current

On the other hand (as a fiddler on the roof plays in the background) the
ASPH is awesome! I would never be without it now.
