Here's my impression, based on an understanding of the design:
There's not much physical reason for this design to be expensive, but I can believe the brand name carries a price premium.
Overkill? You can select a model which has spring bars which are too stiff, but it comes in the same capacities as other common brands. It isn't overkill in weight, complexity, or capability, because it is comparable to competitors by these measures.
It will work, just as every WD system with a bunch of friction built in will work... because that's what it is.
