I've just been through this and went for the 800. I couldn't see much in the way of useful extra features in the 810 to justify the additional cost. Have a look at the review by dcrainmaker.
More problems but still living....

Thanks will try them
Still drawn to the new model but the extra 100 avg is hard to justify
