Does anyone have any experience with this product?

I do a lot of focus stacking, mostly for landscapes (a bit of macro/closeup), all of it manually and am wondering if this would be a significant aid to the process.

Seeing that you are inserting a “spacer” between lens and body, you will lose infinity focusing. Probably not suitable for landscape work.

Good point; this is essentially an extension tube approach.

Rather consider using Helicon Remote. You can specify the depth of the focusing steps.
