Weird O-like pricing

I just noticed something weird with O-like pricing and wanted to share it:

While the 400mW green laser torch /focusable/waterproof (the "old version") costs 214$, the Crown upgrade 400mW green laser torch/adjustable/waterproof, which is supposed to be a better laser (after all it's an "upgrade" of the old version), costs 199.99$ only.

How come? Shouldn't the "upgrade" laser cost more than the "old version" laser (both lasers are labeled > 350mW)?

My possible explanation for this, is:

The "upgrade" laser is actually a "weak" laser that outputs less than 350mW, whereas the "old version" real output power is 350 - 400mW.

The "real" upgrade laser is the one that costs 269.99$ and labeled as > 450mW, and which its real output power is probably 400 - 450mW.

If someone has more insights about this issue, I will be delighted.

I'm guessing they have a glut of the new "crown upgrade" hosts they are just trying to move them out faster.

Because my LPM is a Lasersbee 2.5W usb, and it uses a TEC so it takes some time to respond ! I cant afford an Ophir head now !

Yes, I understand that... but why does it start off at over 200mW?

The reading should start at zero.

Like for example... here the reading starts at 0mW...
