What is the essential difference between guitar effect pedals in different prices ranges? Also, are the DIY stompbox kits worth it?

I'm in the market for a delay pedal, and the gaps between prices are huge (especially for such a simple effect). Is there anything intrinsically wrong with Danelectro's pedals? Why are they so much cheaper than, say, Boss pedals?
I've read this question
and its answers (namely, these two
), and they were helpful.
I've also got an engineering background and am handy with an iron, so building my own would be no problem. The thing is, the kits aren't any cheaper than just buying a production one. So are they worth the extra effort for sound quality?
