How is this different from model A80?
The two models are essentially identical and sell at similar price points, but the AE80B states that it is "Energy Star" certified, and appears to be listed at 1.5 sones, instead of 2.0. Are there any physical differences that substantiate this lower sone rating (e.g., better bearings)? Or is the sone rating for the AE80B simply "rounded down" from 2.0 to 1.5?
