what is the point to spend $$$$ on Pro Grade Range/oven?!!

Hi all!!

I have been doing so much research about which pro range to get for my new kitchen and I just could not believe all the negative feedback I have been reading everywhere...

I have looked into Viking, Thermador, Bertazzoni, Bosch, Dacor, Electrolux and BlueStar. They all seem to have lots of quality issues. (except for BS that has raving review about its BTU).

It would be really nice to have some great, solid range in my new kitchen but from what I read so far for weeks I am almost gonna give up my dream of having one...

What is the point of spending triple the money for something that is going to give you so much trouble later on? Just for having its name or getting applaud from your friends?

It is not so about the money issue but more about how frustrated to hear about the quality of those brands that supposed to be reliable and built well. I might as go with LG or Maytag.

Am I wrong?!

Any feedback/suggestion will be appreciated!
