Pioneer 5070/5071

Has anyone noticed the difference on the two sets? The 5071 at BB has a silver band wrapped around the perimeter, where the 5070 at another local store does not.

It's still the same TV correct?

There is an extra remote on the 71 model. That's it.

It is my understanding that BB routinely has manufacturers renumber higher end merchandise for sale exclusively in BB stores (Pioneer TVs, Sony DVRs, etc.) so that no competitor can sell that unique model number and therefore BB never has to "match a lower price" since there is never a lower price to match. In this case the 5071 at BB might be identical to the 5070 sold every where else but BB will never have to meet a discounted price for the 5070 if they don't want to. This also explains why certain model numbers at BB never show up on the manufacturer's web site.
