It's a great idea... gentle nutritious currents, warm feet, and very efficient heat distribution, but I don't think there is hard proof that it actually improves plant growth, much less that it is required to have a planted tank.
I will not use mine for about 8 months of the year because I don't need a heater during that time... If I had to start over, would I use it again? I don't think so, for the very reason that Rex stated.
