Irwin Record vice differences

Does anyone have any information as to the differences between these two Irwin Record drill press vices ?

T414 Drill Press Vice 4? (100mm) TPV3-B Drill Press Vice 4? (100mm)

They are within millimeters of each other in size yet the TPV3-B retails at £18.86 and the T414 retails at £106.92 (ex vat prices from Lawson-HIS)

Is one really five times the vice of the other ?

Where can the cost benefit be seen - accuracy, play, solid gold jaws ?

According to this site

T414 is machine finished on the important surfaces. I assume the TPV3-B is a cast finish.
