This video really blows.  (I apologize, couldn't help myself)

Thanks for the head to head comparison

I was really heading down the 575 bare route (at $149) since I have two 5.0 batteries.  When the 530 went on sale for $149, I had to compare the value of the two different $149 options.  In the end, I traded the additional 45 CFM, shoulder strap and diffuser for a 2.5 battery.  This became a fairly easy decision (bought the 530) since my tasks are quite basic (pool deck being the main area I need to address).  Here is the bonus:  When I brought it home and showed my wife, her reaction was "wow, that is so light I might actually use it myself..."!!!!

Bottom line - you can't go wrong with either model :)

Thanks Blue.  Please no more beach balls - No, I have not officially  bench tested BUT I have used the 7.5AH in the blower and felt that it was more powerful.  I will put that on the list.  I guess I should stop shooting the beach balls :)

Hard to complete testing when the equipment gets used for target practice!
