Default Is This plane a good value?

I've noticed @Stick486 is strong advocate for hand planes. I would like expert opinion on this item I found on Amazon: (I could not get a link to the webpage to work. I do apologize tor all inconvenience everyone who tries to respond will have)

see Herb's plan for one and make your own..

note...
a 1'' wide body doesn't work on a lot of dadoes or groves..
it is great on dressing tenons and rabbets..

yur more than welcome...

VOE...
#92.. you read the PDF...
Woodriver.. lots of fine tuning and w/ lots of use the heel of my hand tenderized.. better plane for small to medium sized hand.. gave it away...
Clifton 420 and 3110... sweet... but not real comfortable.. sold them.. the Veritas made me do it..
Lie Nielsen 042 and 073.. very nice but didn't fit my hands.. really can't explain it.. sold them..
Veritas.. Small, Medium, Large and Bullnose.... instant gratification and the love affair began...
Veritas, Lie Nielsens and the Cliftons were good to go out of the box...
the Woodriver had to be worked/tuned/trued/sharpened before use.. the iron was over sized...
#92 one sorry assed piece of shid...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Also check out Wood River III planes. I have several and they're good, not quite up to the Veritas, but when you tune them up, they're very good. Kind of depends on how much you use it. A shoulder plane and block plane are really useful tools. Stick is amazing, isn't he?

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
