Everwood Deck Treatment

Anyone ever tried this 'Everwood' wood treatment for a deck?

I had a company come over and they quoted me $1,800 to powerwash my 600 sqft. deck and apply this stuff!!!! Based on their description of 'the product' and the MSDS sheets, I could tell they are applying Everwood which I can buy online for $40 per gallon (I'll only need about 4 gallons).
I'm considering powerwashing the stain off my deck and applying this myself to save some serious cash. But, is it any good?
Thanks, Clocker

Consumer Reports just rated deck treatments although I have to disagree with their conclusion to use the solid stains. When the solids wear out how do you remove them to re-apply? Better off using the best semi stain so you don't have that problem. I could not find anyone willing to try to remove the solid stain from my deck.

Why would you have to remove them? I just clean them and apply the new coat. It seems to have worked fine for the dozen or so years since I bought the house.
