It's hard to go wrong with a basic chunk of metal with no moving parts. The critical issues with such an item are quality of alloy, fit, finish and, in this case, weld.

This Taiwan-made Wilmar (a.k.a. Performance Tool brand) product seems to be of high quality.
It's heavy and, considering it's hollow, I believe this is probably decent quality alloy. The minimum thickness of the socket is 1/8".

The finish is nice and even. There's a small spot of missing finish (bare metal) on the drive end of mine which made it past QC.

The weld job (socket to handle) appears very well done; see my pic. The joint is true and and smooth. It seams (pardon pun) that an automated welding lathe was involved.

The tool features a diamond grip; it's difficult to see in the Amazon image, so I posted a better one.

The socket fit my new Motorcraft 1 5/16" rods like a glove, with almost no play. With rod inserted normally, the tool's socket covers 1 1/16" (5/8" of the flats) of the nut. The rod end is visible, but does not encroach upon the drive pocket.

My first impressions of this tool were quite favorable, especially given the much lower price as compared with equivalent versions from high-end brands.

update 10-26-13:
It worked as advertised, but there are a couple of issues I faced which others may run into:

1. I had to go to the extra trouble of disconnecting the sway/stabilizer bar links so that I could pivot the sway bar up out of the way in order for this tool to be slid over the new tie rod nuts. It couldn't be used without getting that sway bar out of the way. This is, of course, vehicle dependent and YMMV.

2. Using this type of tool can be a 2-man job.
