I think "bang for the buck" has an implication of a nice ratio of quality to price. It's not about "cheap". It's about being a good value.
It doesn't cost, it's priceless. I just installed two Mansfield Quantums. My price was about 250 each, including seat. You will pay more than that.
TOTO maybe a great toilet however it is not necessary to spend that much to get a quality toilet. I have installed dozens of American Standards and Jacuzzi's without issue.
Toto seems to get rave reviews.
