Doesn't seem to be much different than the ShuttlePro (http://www.contourdesign.com/) except that the ShuttlePro looks a little more ergonomically friendly.

You might see some diffrence if you read a little and dont just look at pictures :D

There are servral diffrences between them. As for Shuttlepro i assume that it is only for NLE systems as they dont mention anything else and can not also control VCR/DTRS/DTS/DVD or camcorders...or?
Shuttlepro has not Newtek in their supported NLE list and MC-20Pro will come with pre-configured key maps for various NLE systems, including NewTek VT[4].

Did not dig any futher for more info, but one can not say that only becose they look alike they "doesn't seem to be much different"...

Shuttle Pro can be configured for VT4 and works very well with it. As it is a USB device it cannot plug into a camera or deck through Edit Link but it certainly can control them through your other programs like Premiere or VT. It is also preconfigured to work with Photoshop, Explorer and other programs. I do like the idea of the extra buttons because I seem to always run out on my Shuttle Pro 2. One thing I don't like is that it appears to need external power and the last thing I need is to find a place to plug in another brick adapter.
