Older Crock Pots have better temperature?

Marisa over on Slashfood posts about her love of crock pot cooking and throws in a few helpful tips such as this one:
The last think [sic] I recommend is seeing if you can't get an older slow cooker at a rummage or garage sale. The older models cook at slightly lower temperatures, which will prevent your food from boiling. Some of the newer cookers bring your food up to a rollicking boil even on the low setting, which is not want you want.
I've turned the comments on for this post. What do you think? Older or newer crock pot? Which is better? One concern would be safety, you don't want too low a temperature or you risk illness.

I prefer the new ones but mostly because of the timer settings and additional options like longer/shorter cooking times. Haven't really noticed a time difference

i had exactly that problem! My new crockpot (which cost a pretty penny) did not cook on low. Warm was just that, warm, but a roast would cook in three hours on low. It was a waste of money. I recently got another one and I have high hopes for all days soups and roasts. We will see…..
