    Bangalore,
    Its your money,
    The difference is around Rs 500.
    It has advantage as well as disadvantage.
    Advantage is you can get birds in one direction in C & Ku frequency only if available & if they are of any use to you.
    Disadvantage is if you are not interested in one of the birds then you dont require a C + Ku lnb.
    So first decide which bird or birds are interesting to you.
    Here in the middle east like me, most people use 3 ku band universal lnb's on a single 90 cm dish to receive 3 birds namely Arabsat, Nilesat & Hotbird just an example of peoples requirements.

    Just curious are you really a Bangalorean or are you from Rajastan settled in Bangalore?

    Mr. Bangalore Check this .....

    I am a TV technician from Margao-Goa and a regular reader of your magazine. Satellite reception is my hobby. I currently receive 13 satellites on 4 dishes, using a manual 3-way switch. I receive more than 500 free to air channels.
    On one 8 feet C band dish I receive 6 satellites by fixing 5 dual LNBs and 1 LHC LNB.
    1. ASIASAT 3 KU BAND
    2. NSS 6 KU BAND
    3. YAMAL 201
    4. INSAT 2C, 3B, 4A
    5. TELSTAR
    6. PAS 7/10

    On the 2nd 8 feet dish I receive 5 satellites by fixing 5 dual LNBs
    1. ASIASAT 4
    2. ASIASAT 3
    3. ASIASAT 2
    4. INSAT 4C KU BAND
    5. ST 1 & CHINA STAR

    On 3rd 8 feet C band dish I receive YAMAL 202 and on 4th 4 feet KU band dish I receive ARABSAT 2D (EUROBIRD 2) KU BAND.
    I am sending you 2 photographs of my dish.

    Firstly, what you must consider is if your dish is "Mesh" is it in fact Ku capable.
    Then you also have to consider if you require a Universial LNB, as combined C // Ku LNB's can't cover a ku universial frequancies, all KU LNB's on a combined unit are standard 11300 LNB's .

    Really nothing beats a dedecated dish. But Ird**to 2 Enginner retails a fine example of a combined unit, and cheap too..
