FWIW, the Woodpecker triangle is a second release. I bought one when it was first released in 2017. I use it often, and am glad to have it. Is is overpriced? Maybe. However, there was enough demand to release it again.
Look at TSO products' webside. They have a similar product (18") that's $10 cheaper. The TSO version has dog holes designed to be used with the Festool MFT3, which is a big plus for Festool MFT3 owners. BTW, the TSO guide rail square, which clamps to Festool guide rails, is very slick and works very well.
The cost versus utility issue has been around for a long time, and will probably be around forever. There are folks who wouldn't give up their Festool Kapex chop saw, and others who think it's insane to spend $1,495 for any chop saw. Who's right? Depends on what features you want, and what you can afford.
There are times I choose to make do, because the cost/benefit favors making do. Other times, it's worth the cost - at least to me. When it comes to tools, don't we all go through some sort of cost/benefit analysis, even if unconsciously?
