Crosscut sleds worth the effort?

Lately I've been watching alot of youtubers? Doing woodworking and alot of them have a crosscut sled that they use regularly and I'm just wondering if they really make all the effort to make one worth it?

One of which I'm interested in making is similar to "Nick Ferry's" it have T tracks and a triangular 45 degree insert. The cooler part is how he added the adhesive tape measure on the sled itself for quicker stop block referencing.

thing is if you are doing a lot of fine/finishing work they are a god send.....nice thing is speed and no rip out so I would say yes it is worth it...considering how much it would cost as you can make one pretty much from scrap.....

I was wanting to make a really nice one once I got a new table saw. I'm waiting for a nice side job to pay for a ridgid 10" cast iron table saw so I can start adding around that.

I'd build a sled, router table insert. And an outfeed table.
