Easier to compare when both products are listed in the same place, I too thought they were very much the same but there actually appears to be a few differences:thumbsup


I must admit, the wording doesn't really help much as some are different but mean the same thing????

Hope you get the answer you are looking for. If you do have to resort to email then perhaps you could post the link to this thread and request nicely that they pop over to provide the answer on here so that other members who are interested in these items can easily find the answer using the forum search function.



All I can help with is that I've got the 2080 (bought from them, actually) and it does what it says on the tin - great bit of kit.

Sorry for the late reply guys, back now after a bout of gastroenteritus!

Literally the only difference is one has a brand name on it. It really is that simple.
