Finally here’s V1 and V2 side by side. The power button has been moved to accommodate the full HDMI ports.
Fully assembled the V2 feels a few grams lighter to the V1. Perhaps they have thinned the materials or simply swapped to a lighter alloy. They look identical. I have disabled the fans on my V1 as I do not like the whirling sounds it makes. So far I’m quite tolerant with the fan noise on the V2.
This is a great upgrade, and at half the price of my locally purchased V1, I’m happier than ever.
