I don't disagree, there are times when you need to up the quality to avoid premature disappointment because of difficulty of repair or replacement.
In some circumstances 'buy cheap and replace often' can work. All my LED lights are installed to be easily replaced, for instance, simply because lights are, well, lights, and like light bulbs sometimes they fail.
In some cases I'm experimenting with lighting, so changing it up has produced surprising improvements.
