What is the difference between model 4670R and 4670rW?

I plan to replace our old model 3100X with the Ultra model since the 3100X is no longer getting software updates and, if I understand correctly, will soon no longer work with Netflix. In my research I found that Amazon, Best Buy, and Roku show the model number to be 4670R while WalMart shows the model number to be 4670RW. Does anyone know if there are two different models and, if so, what the differences are?

Thanks,

Terry

Some of the bigger retailers do have subtle differences in their Models which for the most part are the same. I might get a Ultra myself eventually because its about the only one with an Ethernet port.

Its the weekend now but maybe one of the admins will chime in and tell us the subtle differences.

Or do some research on the web and see what you come up with. Check out Best Buy for sure.

Roku Ultra ---Ethernet rules---

From now on if people dont upvote me and do as I say I will consider holding my breath and selling my Roku's.

The W does mean Walmart. Supposedly the only difference is that the Walmart remote has a Vudu button (Vudu is a Walmart company.)

Along with a dedicated Vudu button, they also include a 5 dollar off coupon for Vudu purchases/rentals.
