I have used it with no problems, I have 3 healthy tanks with it. I cannot compare as such, as it is the only planting specific substrate I have used. Similar to your situation, at the time it was the only in-stock available -part of a store credit purchase.
29g heavily planted SA: driftwood, rocks, Angels, Corys, Rasboras.
8g Nuvo: Pineapple SuperDumbo, driftwood, java moss and crypts. A jungle.
10g 3x divided Betta planted with Blue Mustard Gas, Red Double Tail HM, Blue/Red Fire Dragon and snails.
