I think you're right....strange thing is that the cheaper one has 14 reviews and the more expensive one has 151 reviews.....IDK maybe I should go with the more expensive one just to be safe....LOL

Nah, it is just the expensive one has more words in it and responds to more searches, and it has probobly been around for a looonggg time. I expect the cheaper one is newer.
