What's the difference between these and plain M5Gs?

What's the difference between these and plain M5Gs?

Straight from wikipedia:

MK5 models
SL-1200MK5 (released in 1 November 2002) has a silver finish like the MK2, increases the range of anti-skate settings from 03 grams-force (030 mN) to 06 grams-force (060 mN). Also has a white LED target light (previous versions only had a globe and burnt out over time). Current MK5 models have a removable lid with magnets as opposed to the MK2 and MK3 removable hinged lid.
SL-1210MK5 has a matte black finish like the MK2, and is exactly the same as the SL-1200MK5, aside from the voltage switch, like the other decks in the 1210 series.
SL-1200MK5G Similar to the SL-1210M5G.
SL-1210M5G (released in 1 November 2002) has a glossy piano-black finish with silver speckles, was a special 30th-anniversary edition. It was initially launched in Japan only (together with the MK5) but is now internationally available. The difference from the MK5 model is the ability to switch between 8% and 16% ranges for pitch adjustment, and the pitch control in this model is completely digital. It also features blue target lights and blue pitch-number illumination. The brake strength potentiometer, although still located beneath platter, can now be adjusted, unlike previous models, without the need for a screwdriver thanks to the addition of a small plastic knob. Minor improvements over Mk2, Mk3, Mk4, & 1200LTD also include improved tonearm mounting and oxygen-free copper wire being used for the signal, improved vibration damping in the body, improvements to the pitch control accuracy and better LEDs.

Spec-wise nothing. The models are distinct to differentiate the market it was intended for. These are the Japan-only version.

I'm gonna go with just a slight name change, that's about it. I remember when was still called MK5G, but then it later changed to M5G.

No they are indeed different. The Japanese version is 100V and the M5G is 120V. Not that it matters, they both work here in the US.

Was actually talking about the 1210MK5G, in which they actually dropped the K from the name. But i didn't notice till now it said "1200" for the jap version.
