Default Differences between 1 GB and 2 GB Players

I got a Clip 1 GB two months ago, purchased brand new on Amazon. This week I got a 2 Gb used from a local eBay at a very good price. I was comparing the players and notice two things:
- the control wheel buttons click louder in the 2 GB, the 1 GB buttons are very smooth and silent.
- the circle led (around the wheel) its brighter in the 2 GB. Looks nicer but I don't know if that affects the battery life.
So 1 point for each one, because I like better the brighter led and the smooth buttons. I just want to know if everybody notice this before or if that louder clicking is because of misuse or wearing.
Nice day!

As far as I know, there should be no differences. I got my Clip from Best Buy, too. The button click loud. So i do not know why they are different.

I guess one could expect somewhat bigger manufacturing tolerance margins with a player as cheap as the Clip... as for the "click", maybe it is louder on the new one because it hasn't been used that much yet?

The LEDs certainly don't use much juice - a bit brighter or darker shouldn't affect the battery much.

Thanks for the quick answer.

Actually, I think mine is newer (less used) than the recently-adquired louder used one.

I have to post a photo of both players side by side because is very noticeable, no a bit.
