Available at http://www.acecosportgroup.com/content/products/. Thoughts on this? I'm thinking about making my Surly a 1x10...

Looks like it'll be a lot easier to set up then the one Paul (http://www.paulcomp.com/chainkeeper.html) has.
I ran a more typical outer guard and Third Eye on the inside, and after crashing in one race, my chain was actually jammed between my ring and the Third Eye and it took me a couple of minutes to fix it and it pretty much messed me up mentally for the rest of the race. If I were to run a single ring again, I would totally get something like this as it looks far less likely to bork up.

Looks like it'll be a lot easier to set up then the one Paul (http://www.paulcomp.com/chainkeeper.html) has.That's debatable, and you don't need an outer guide with the Paul chainkeeper. (Nor do you need a bashguard for cross.)

Yes, I agree that both will have some pros an cons. I like the Paul option mostly because you can skip the outer guard and also allow for better cleaning of the chainring. And using shorter chainring bolts, it would make for a really clean looking set up.
I like the K-Edge option because it has a single clamp bolt, and an independent adjustment bolt for the guard itself. The Paul has three adjustments, but the guard adjustment is on the same binder bolt as one of the seatpost clamp adjustments...which would make it more tricky to setup in my judgment.

Maybe I'm cheap but at $65 it seems really expensive. The N-Stop is $10-$15 and the Paul is $55.

Very Nice and VERY pricey.
I have the Jump Stop. Have had it for two year. Great company to deal with have NEVER lost a chain using it.

I like that a lot. The nice thing about the Paul and this one over the N Gear is that it has a top cover/lip thing. I have had a chain bounce and go off with the N gear and outer ring.
