It's not about cost or the complexity of assembly, it's more of a long-term benefit. I've built both a Sells and a Prusa (and now a Max), and the Sells had the only fire-and-forget solution for the Z rods. With two motors, i had to re-synchronize the rods countless times (mostly after trying out higher speeds and having just one motor skip), where the Sells' belt kept everything synchronized.
