Bose Home Speaker 500 - same as Home Speaker 450 at Costco?

This is a new model. So am wondering, why is Costco selling as Bose Home Speaker 450, which looks identical to the Bose Home Speaker 500?

This appears to be the same product as the home speaker 500, minus the lcd screen. Great way to get the same speaker and save some money while you’re at it. 
Combine that with the lifetime return policy and you’re golden. 
I should warn you that all Bose home speakers are entirely broken with iOS 13 currently. The volume slider is bugged, rendering the speakers completely useless worldwide.

Appreciate the reply! Ah, the LCD screen: would be real nice to have to see what's playing! I'd rather pay the extra $50 to have the LCD, I think! 🙂 My phone is a Galaxy S10 so no issues with iOs...

Has the newer iOS (13.1.3) fixed the problem on Bose products?
