I'd say compare the ingredients (%'s of whey vs Casein protein , and things like that ) to products from other popular makers like BSN or Cytomax, and if its close enough for your needs, support the guy who is trying to support your sport.
A protein powder is not really a complicated thing-- they are used by 90 lb senior citizens on up to 300 pound powerlifters ---- but some of the blends can produce different effects depending on how quick they digest and are absorbed ---- a pure whey protein is a pretty quick digesting protein. If i were to take a wild guess, Ryno probably consulted a nutritionist who advised him of what would be a good multi-purpose blend for a 150-190 lb guy to supplement their diet who doesn't necessarilly strive to weigh 240 pounds
Taste is a real big deal too for the average user --- unless a person is hardcore, (old school bodybuilders used to eat liver tablets even -- they did not have taste buds) - they will probably bow out after a couple of scoops and that $25-$50 jug of powder will just sit on the shelf getting dusty
