A silicon ADV will up the price of the filter, not a realistic expectation for a budget ST filter.
For Fram it makes sense, they now just have to make one ADV across all filter lines, so no real cost increase for the Extra Guard using one.
For the e-core, I would have no issue using one for a manufacturers stated interval, but I don't think I could make myself use it on an extended (ie 10,000 + mile) OCI.
I have seen a few of them handle a lot of crud with no failure.
Purepro L4651 (5000 -7000 miles on it)
STP S2 (unknown miles or engine):
