Fortunately we have a slightly better selection in Europe, plus in Asia where I may get some potential use. For North America, it is a definitely a little less exciting. Just depends on where you have in mind for the usage that drives the value here.

Having done the maths for me locally, I can get a positive return vs investment even on a 5:1 earn / burn rate. Without the cheap earning option, it would definitely be less attractive.
