    The picture of the more expensive one shows the Slim Devices logo, the cheaper one shows the Logitech logo. I wonder if anyone daft enough to pay the extra really will get a SD branded SB3?

    Note also that the one with the Slim Devices logo must sound better - it has an extra star on the rating!

    So just to be clear one what's going on here -- one of those links is
    fulfilled by Amazon directly (the more expensive one) and the other is
    fulfilled by SlimDevices. The only interesting thing that I can see is that
    the product listings have not been merged, which Amazon usually manages to
    do very well. Many, many products can be ordered through Amazon from dozens
    of vendors at varying prices.

    I'm just surprised how expensive the Amazon price is, I buy a lot of stuff from them and their prices are usually better than that.

    This is rather scarying! It seems to be connected to the recent transporter european prices increasement. I haven't seen any official answer on this older topic... I fear that SD products prices will continue to raise to this level...

    Notice the "Better Together" deal offered for item 1: "Buy this item with Pirates of the Caribbean - At World's End [Blu-ray] DVD ~ Johnny Depp today!" for only $388.86. Must mean that it's a secret version of the SB that supports Blu-ray discs. Pretty good price then...

    They will definitely not get a SD branded one. They are just using an outdated image.
