I think perhaps it's an indication that they are all "much of a muchness". There is so much choice and the differences are so minor or so hidden in the technical details. So the inexperienced ask for advice because they have trouble knowing which is best.

That's certainly a decent explanation and if so there is really even less reason to give information/advice about which is 'best' and more detail on the ways one piece of equipment can help in one area, more than another...
