I’m comparing it to what I would consider to be accepted good mechanical design practices. There is a segment of the market that will spend the money for quality. Festool, L-N planes, etc. come to mind as examples. A lower cost model could have a less expensive mechanism. I’ve seen linear guides used on cheap positioners for video based measuring tables and many other relatively inexpensive items. The price of linear bearings isn’t as great as you might think. They are so common now that they have become a commodity.
