    A little help please from the people who know... as this is sending me mad.....

    So I understand that the basically the RDR-HXD870B is a black cased model and that the RDR-HXD870S is a silver cased model, but what is a RDR-HXD870?

    I am in the market to purchase one of these 870's in silver but this morning I noticed one of the websites selling all three models and there was a £40 difference between the RDR-HXD870S and RDR-HXD870, which they showed both in silver!!! Confused the hell out of me... can anybody help... or is it simply just two models a "S" Silver and a "B" black?

    For an example of this phenomenon, see EmpireDirect.co.uk and you will see the RDR-HXD870S at £219.99 and the RDR-HXD870 at £299!

    If anybody knows where the specification sheets for al lthese models are (SonyStyle only seem to list the RDR-HXD870S and B) then would you post the URL so I can check out the difference if there are any!!!

    Also, does anybody have sight of any superb, excellent, never to be missed deals at the moment? I see that when you serach the net you can get a new one delivered for about £203 (Digitaldirect.co.uk) but wit just 12 months warranty. Empire Direct are doing the 870S at £219 and as I already have an EDExtra Card I can get a free 3 year warranty... Seems like a good deal, but anybody know better?

    checked empire for you ( got my 970b from there for £200 delivered :) ) and could only see the 1070b , the 870b and the 870s

    they did have an 860 at £299.99p so maybe you confused the numbers ?

    and s = silver and b = black as you thought

    As has been said there is only the S and the B... but I have seen retailers where they don't show the full model number; i.e. they leave off the S or B suffix. But they still usually tell you what colour it is....
