It saves you trying to find all the individual components. For example - many of the individual bits would come as part of a set.
You're right that with some research you could find and build one of these yourself for possibly a cheaper price. Or you could harvest the parts from your toolkit in the garage... but then you have to keep accessing it for routine work at home.
Call me lazy, but I think it's a good deal.
