Used Sachtler DV8/100 vs. DV8/100 SB

I am considering buying a used Sachtler DV8/100 (not the SB) and had some questions for anyone who might know:

How does the older non-SB model compare to the current SB model? Aside from the "speed balance" feature, are there any other differences? Smoothness, ruggedness, adjustability, usability? I'll be using it with a Sony PMW-EX1.

What's a good price for a used head, 2 or 3 years old, in perfect working condition with cosmetic blemishes. Is it worth far less than an SB?

Any other pitfalls to buying an old Sachtler, specifically this model?

Thanks in advance.
