I'd call that an "investment"... Chances are you wouldn't need to replace it for many years! So, divide years of use by $100 and it's cheaper than continually buying cheap cords every 6months or each year.
Kinda why I prefer Michelin tires for my primary vehicle... Sure, initial expense hits the wallet hard! But, when they last 5 years, they're cheaper than yearly tires.
