Why are they worth so much? What do they do that a normal bench grinder cannot?

I have the smaller version from Lesco. It has a 1/2 hp motor on it. It works good for what I use it for, but my blades never get that bad. I run a real sharp blade bevel angle, so I am grinding alot of steel. I usually change this blade bevel and grind the bevel longer (about to the center of the blade) using a 4" sidegrinder first (initially). The only problem with the Neary, was that the bed is too small, and I would get a little bit of wobble out of the blade toward the end if I didn't hold it just right. I bolted a piece of 1/4' flat stock on it (about 10" x 3 or 4") with countersunk allen screws, and it works great - smooth all the way through.

Neary is a sister company of Foley United. Both companies specialize in computerized spin grinding equipment for reel mowers. High buck high tech machines.
Their rotary blade grinders have developed from the older versions pictured in these posts to a 90 degree grinder. The new grinders are the model 440 and 450.
I have a newer model 400, like the one pictured. For me and my maintenance standards, the model 400 performs well.
The value for the price isn't objectionable-even the older units work well.
