Although the v2 is very similar to the v1, there are a few differences in the V4.70(AALS.0) firmware (which is also available for the original NSA325).

The Home page has been rearranged from a linear to a "C" shaped format. Clicking on each icon brings it to the front and shows its title. Since some of the icons aren't obvious, I wish the titles appeared in a tooltip when moused over.

The admin interface has the same look and feel as before, as illustrated in the screenshot.

I found one other important difference when checking to see if more installable packages had been added (they have). The Package menu has been moved from the Applications section to a tab on the System Setting > Firmware page. There are now seventeen packages / apps that can be downloaded and installed. All are shown in the following two screenshots.
