This part is designed primarily from the MTB folks. For them, this adapter should serve admirably in all respects.
It is far stronger than roadies will need so there's a weight penalty for them. It is also a bit too long for most applications (especially small frames) but alternative products are often too short. The effective length of this adapter is 194mm when the wedge lock will begin to hold the adapter in place.
The stem clamp area is about 49mm so with a stem like a Thomson X4, there's about 10mm of vertical adjustment.
Summed up: Built like a tank and long enough for just any threadless conversion.
Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

This is a nicely made quality product. It works for my road bike application. I was looking for about 2.5 inches (6 centimeters) or more of space from the top of my steerer tube to the bottom of the 1 1/8" part of the adapter and I got it without going over the limit. So I am using 3 FSA spacers that are 2 centimeters each. I am also using a 1 centimeter spacer under the FSA stem to make the top flush with the top of the adapter. It looks reasonably good and is very sturdy. When you get old and have a stiff back, it helps to be more upright on the road bike.
