Well,
Just do anything to confuse people.  That makes the buyer very dependent on reading all information on an item.  How many different versions of one product are necessary?  If one product was made with options to set it to different outputs wouldn't it be cheaper in the long run?  The price could be lowered on the manufacturer's end.
