So it appears the 805 was actually moved down quite a bit. To me it seems like they overbuilt the 805 and now are trying to move the 806 into it's place to where they thought it should have been.

I would go with the 805 over the 806. What you get is not IMHO as significant as what you give up.


You can find new ones for around $600-$625. Refurbs are cheaper but not that much cheaper(like $25).


You might look at Circuit City or Frys to see if they have any closeouts left. They were blowing them out.
