Yes A0018 means 18 hours. I think if the main board is replaced, the hours reset to zero so if that's the case, they've put 18 hours on it since the repair. $464 is a good deal for it regardless.

I have one of each of these models and the ST60 has better blacks, is much crisper and more detailed, and a smoother image. The ST60 is better in every picture quality category.
