The 7940 and 7960 are the exact same thing except for the line key count.
They both are fairly reliable with "Non-CM" SIP in 8.X and on as long as you
stay away from any remotely fancy features like shared lines (SUBSCRIBE) or

The 7941 and 61 however I've never seen the non-CM SIP FW for.  If it is a
CM-SIP FW, you may want to check this 7970 reference and some of the related
articles for XML config help:

Eh, it's not so bad with the 7960s.  A bit of a pain, but the high-quality
hardware makes it worth it.

The 7940s?  Yeah, I wouldn't touch that.
