Fair enough and I haven't... I'm making a decision informed by info here that the construction is the same, but the models are different. And so, to me, and I'm presuming others here, it's not really worth it to investigate further; I have all the info I need. Just one guy's completely subjective opinion and a question without a "right" answer.
