Looks fun, I've wanted to do something similar with just a piece of string for a while but never got round to it...

The string technique was used by LGL teaching his team with Ma Long holding a paddle horizontal  2 inches above the net:

The solution shown in the OP is pushing the concept further by closing the window of opportunity so the ball needs to bounce at the right spot on the server's side to succeed: the rope becomes an horizontal plane big enough to force the bounce away from the net for the ball to barely clear the net. 

I am not sure why we can't land closer to the net and still achieve a very good short serve, with less initial speed. That would mean this tool is only to train for fast and semi fast serves maybe? and why wouldn't that achievable with a rope? Oh yes, to better control the spot where we land on our side of the table. Or maybe because it's very hard to sell a 5 feet piece of rope for $139.

IMHO Price wise I'd say not on the cheap side and you could construct smth similar yourself, but not too overpriced as some return boards are.. so I think you won't be robbed and it depends on your financial situation :)
