So I purposely aimed my projectors high so I could actually use the 6 settings.
Interesting. That, to me, doesn't sound like it would be a very useful feature for 99% of the time then for those without projectors.

I can definitely see why they didn't give it to Americans, as it would add to the cost and we would never use it! Though it could be considered the "lazy-man's" way to change the light level, so that certainly has America written all over it.
