@ilanb100 Thanks for the question. The letters at the end of a model number denote either the retailer or region that a device was sold through/in. They do not differentiate the device features. 

To comment on your previous questions, the Roku Express 3930 is our latest Roku Express model with the most up to date hardware in that product line. 

 

Thanks,

Tanner

I believe the latest is the 8th generation. Model number 3930 is the latest. That said, the 6th gen 3900 is basically the same.

Letters after the number just tell how it was sold, and variations of the remote it comes with. X=common sales, R=Retail, W=Walmart (remote has Vudu button.)

That is the 6th gen, which is basically the same as the current one. I do wonder about the EU, as that may mean it's for the Europe market. Not sure if that would affect anything.

Be aware that a new Express is only around US$30, so that eBay deal had better be real good, especially with any shipping costs.

 well, they all offer it for about $45-50 but shipment from England to Israel is very cheap, as the ones sold in the USA the shipment cost is almost the same as product cost. 

but how can i tell weather the EU makes any difference?

but how about the TV broadcast method - can the same roku express play in any of them?
for example - if i buy one in the USA where they use NTSC TV broadcast method, will it play om PAL?
