    There was a thread discussing this a while ago but it didn't really come to any conclusion. The website says 500W but other sources say 400W. Is there two versions or just wrong labels?
     
  2. I believe that the older version was 400, and the current model is 500.

    the HLF is 400 watts and the HLN is 500 watts. The HLN was a limited run.

    Companied change their specs without notice. IME, they don't always update their website/literature to accomodate these changes.

    My SVT-410HLN is 500W. IIRC, I've seen SVT-410HLF's in 400W and 500W
