I see this is now listed on the Sky+ website - as speculated it is indeed priced at £399 I still can't quite believe this - an extra £250 for a component that, even going for an expensive brand/higher capacity, would cost around £100. And there doesn't seem to have any other benefit to upgrading unless I am missing something (disabled USB sockets do not count!)? Perhaps the MPEG decoder has been improved? I normally buy new items of kit like this as soon as Sky releases them. But not this time - there has to be some degree of value for money. It will be interesting to see how many people actually upgrade at this price.
