What are the differences between the Sony KDL-70W850B & Sony KDL-70W830B

What are the differences between the Sony KDL-70W850B & Sony KDL-70W830B ?
I think Best buy sells the Sony KDL-70W850B & Costco sells the Sony KDL-70W850B.
Also I think the Sony KDL-70W850B is the latest model.
The Sony KDL-70W830B looks nicer as it has the chrome stand and brushed aluminum wedge on the sides, whereas the Sony KDL-70W850B is all black. Kinda dull.

These seem the same here:
KDL-70W850B/60W850B/50W850B
KDL-70W840B/60W840B/50W840B
KDL-70W830B/60W830B/50W830B
KDL-70W800B/60W800B/50W800B

Nothing is different under the hood.

So the main difference is cosmetics: The Sony KDL-70W830B looks nicer as it has the chrome stand and brushed aluminum wedge on the sides, whereas the Sony KDL-70W850B is all black.

Do you know when the release date was for the KDL-70W830B?
I was told that mine was a newer version than the KDL-70W850B and the fact that you don't see anything on it here on this forum until I posted my other "owners" thread.

Generally most manufacturers will release the same model with different numerical designation W830B (Costco) the W850B (Best buy).

That is exactly why they do that. This has been going on for years though. BJ's, Costco etc... have different part numbers for the same TVs. Sony has always done that.

I've been looking at the KDL-840b and though most of what is under the hood is similar, there are some differences..
For instance, the 850b has a motionflow rate of 480 while the 840b has a rate of 260. Sony's 'motionflow' is designed to help with motion blur and judder thus it would be fair to say that the 850a has a faster processing speed.
