Oh, last thought. Has anyone else noticed a font difference between the 40s and the others? Here is a picture of a 01, 30, 40, 40, 60 wii in that order. Notice that the third and fourth wiis (the 40s) have a thinner font for the words "Serial No" than the rest. I checked this against another 40, two 60s, and a 20, and it held true. If anyone else could confirm, that would be great :)

The 01 one has thinner letters than the others, but it's a little thicker than the 40s when you compare side by side, as if it's the same font as the 40s, only bold or something.
Also looks like there's a bigger space before the last boxed number

@Shank Did you have any success comparing the video quality from different Wii revisions? Specifically between 40 boards with BU99 and A C8391 AVE chips.

I still plan to do so, I've just been busy. I got most of the way through recording footage, but friend of a friend who's capture equipment I used is no longer a friend of a friend. I will need to find new capture equipment and re-shoot all the footage in order to have a consistant testing environment. This will take quite a bit of time and money I don't have at this moment. Another friend plans to purchase a very nice capture card, but I don't know when that will happen.
