Difference between SD2005 and EG005W switch

I cannot see any difference to speak of between these two switches
 
 
 
 
 I have a  home based network and will be connecting two pcs with gigabit cards to transfer files occasionally.
 
Thanks

I'd really like that someone could answer that question since I am wondering the same thing!

The only difference really is cosmetic. The SD2005 is geared for the business sector and the EG005W is for the home user, but are identical in terms of speed and number of ports.

There seems to the more of a difference than just cosmetics.  The product specs indicate that the EG005W "Supports address learning and aging, 802.3x flow control and head-of-line blocking prevention", which the SD2005 does not.  I have no idea what that functionality buys you, and would greatly appreciate anyone chiming in who could explain it.

I understand that the spec for EG005/8W and SD2005/8 are both the same in terms of no of Ports &  Speed, the diff is in Product Case & Warranty. 
 
- Stackable, plastic casing vs metal casing, desktop solution, wall mountable, security lock slot
- 5 yrs limited warranty vs lifetime limited warranty

The Linksys Pre-Sale support said the EG005W has been discontinued and it is replaced by SD2005.
