I bought HY and H, spending hours to look and compare physically and online. Specs are very similar, I would say they have same specs. I also think one is newer model. I would say HY is newer model.

The Y version might be a Best Buy exclusive part number so that you can't price match, but physically identical to VG245H.

I was thinking the same thing. ASUS did this to their routers as well. I don't know if they still do it. I have the ASUS RT-AC87U router but I bought mine from BB because it was cheaper then elsewhere at the time and my packaging/branding came as AC87R.

I remember I was freaking out years back, if I could update the firmware or not because mine said "R" and the website says "U" and there was nothing under "R". CSR cleared up "R" was marked for "retail" for whatever reasion, etc, and that it is a U router and it was safe to update firmware.

Bingo! I remember when I was looking at a few Asus monitors and some retailers had an EHE variant and others had EHEY. Same thing.

Interesting! Both of these were purchased from BB. You were right, all of Google search results for HY were from BB. Thanks.
