I have the Ender3 v2.My ender 3 pro cost $200, have another $150 or so invested in different filaments. So from a strict $ standpoint it takes a while, but for me being able to CAD something up, print it out same day without dealing with traffic or shipping is worth the investment.
Like Bill I didn't think it would be very useful, have no need to print figurines like I see people posting about online...now I use it for all kinds of things! Replacement appliance knobs, pinewood derby wheels, mockup parts for a CNC retrofit just to name a few.
I had a need for a specific RV project. but like you said now everywhere i look i see a use for it. I REALLY struggled with PETG, finally getting it under control. The above was printed in TPU, and it went flawless, which blew my mind for a non direct drive extruder setup.
It is quite the learning path, that's for sure.
