Welcome!

Both are good however Rev A does not support or will not ever support IPv6 networking. Rev B does. that's about the only major differences.

Good Luck.

From what i\ve read on some forums, rev a had a better hardware than rev b. That user said that rev a has a mercedes engine inside, and rev b has a kia engine inside. Is that true ?

I've never had a Rev A however my Rev B works very well when I have it connected.
