Well, Todd, I've been guilty of referring to my R390/URR as a "non-A"
model, and the reason I've done so is because so many folks just say
"R390" when they are really referring to the more common R390-A. Just
trying to be specific and unambiguous, because, as you know, there are
several significant differences between them.
