LG 4163B - Retail or OEM ??

Postby asdzxc on Sat Jan 15, 2005 1:03 am

Hi all,

the LG 4163B has just arrived where I am :)

Besides the software, screws, cable & box - is there any other differences between the Retail & OEM versions ??

ie: Warranty differences, Firmware, Buffer sizes etc... ???


thanks

You may not get any warranty or support with an OEM version.

Does anyone know if the retail kit comes with different colored faceplates by any chance? I really want a 4163 but would definitely prefer black and haven't seen a retail kit in black yet. Am I going to be in for a long (=infinite) wait? :/

No, if you want black you need to buy the black version. LG doesn't do the swappable faceplate thing yet.

I just purchased one a week ago. It's already broken. Time for some warranty work.
