1920-48G Transceivers - X120 vx X121

Does anyone know the difference between the X120 and the X121 transceivers?

We have a 1920-48G (JG927A) and page 23 of the manual - http://www8.hp.com/h20195/v2/GetDocument.aspx?docname=c04394247 - lists both the X120 (JD118B) and the X121 (J4858C) as being compatible transceivers (both are 1 gig LC SX).

Pages 25 and 27 of the manual include more details about the transceivers, but I'm still not clear on what the functional difference is between the two.

I don't think there is one.

The J4858C was the 1Gb SFP in use for years with Procurve switches. The other one appeared a few years ago, presumably as a result of HPs unfortunate foray into 3COM-land.
