I assume this jig is no more difficult to set up than other low cost, half blind dovetail jigs. I spent half a day and quite a few scraps getting it to work properly. Despite the message in the product video, it is not a quick or easy job (if your goal is to have perfect fitting joints).
As well, don't bother to try and cut the joints for a box in just 2 passes as implied in the video. I don't think it is possible. The best you can do is 3 due to geometry/physics.
Once set up, the jig does an acceptable job.
