Interestingly, I saw Gang Of Four on Friday night and it sparked an interesting conversation in a similar vein. GoF only have one original member, guitarist Andy Gill, and I know a few people who didn't want to go because of that. We reached a consensus that in every band there are one or two members whose presence is non-negotiable but, beyond that, as long as it sounds like the band you like, it really doesn't matter. With GoF it is definitely the guitarist who matters. His style and sound is utterly unique and completely mesmerising. Anything he does is GoF as far as I'm concerned, just as anything John Watts does is Fischer Z.
It's the same here, you don't need a 303 (or a clone) to get that acid bassline sound and, in fact, it might be more noteworthy if you are clever enough to get it some other way.

WORST. SYNTH. EVER.
that has produced the
BEST MUSIC EVER
Nothing I've heard from you, pal, that's for sure. Let's not forget, too, that you can achieve the same result with pretty much any synth, it was just pure chance that it originated with a 303. And for Dog's sake, hasn't it been done to death by now?

This is the cost of just the filter in Eurorack
It's Au$50 more than an IK Multimedia Uno here, although I see on Thomann that it's actually Au$30 cheaper. Still, for your extra Au$30 you get a second oscillator, two full ADSR envelopes, a multi-mode filter with drive, an arpeggiator as well as a step/realtime sequencer with up to 20 automation lanes, and many other features not found on the TD-3. (Is "TD" short for "Tedious?) You also get patch memory and a standalone/VSTi editor/librarian. So I don't see it as a bargain price entry into anything but sadness.
I’m not going to be buying a 303 myself, but I did buy their Odyssey, Neutron, Model D and DM12 and I have nothing but praise for these instruments.
I'd have been all over the Odyssey if they had bothered to include patch memory but, as it stands, I see it as a big waste of money and space, like my Mono/Poly was back in the day.
