you can see both models at Amazon. G.
The difference is the older VHD-H2YV (note no "s") vs. the newer VHD-H2YVs (note the "s" at the end).
The newer one is the one you want. I don't know if you even can get the older one anymore (not off Amazon, at least), but good to be aware of the difference in case you're buying elsewhere, or used.
HD Fury was hard to find for a while, esp. once Curt Palme and Monoprice both stopped carrying them, but no problem to get them from hdfury.com now.
For me, the ViewHD was noticeably cheaper, and given Amazon's generous return policy (and no international shipping needed), I gave the ViewHD a try first, and ended up liking it enough that I haven't bothered to go after the HD Fury even though I could if I wanted, now. It has worked flawlessly for me, to date. (I might feel less happy if I wasn't going through an AVR with a full scaler built in, however, I dunno.)
