I would guess that the more expensive one is flashed with an enhanced firmware.
I believe it has some new nice capabilities.

Düwi is a Z-Wave brand out of Europe. Looks like this particular model is a wall switch.
Dezwaved at the moment...

The -3 suffix probably denotes the newer firmware.  Hard to say, the product numbers vary a lot; I've had:
06431 (new firmware)
05431 (old firmware)
05457 (new firmware)

The newer firmware supports state push, associations (managed by Vera), and a few other things.  Be aware that there was a bug in this firmware that affected state push and associations (see here: http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,8045.0.html), which got fixed only recently; I'm not sure if the fix has made it to the market yet.  If you need these features, make sure you're getting the latest firmware.  And thanks for reminding me, I neglected to post an update to that old thread.
HomeWave is available in the App Store!  Turn your iPhone/iPad into an easy-to-use remote control for Vera.
