Default U-FIZZ carbonation eliminates conditioning?

I was just doing some Christmas shopping when I stumbled across the following product:
http://www.thinkgeek.com/homeoffice/kitchen/c908/

Could this be used as an alternative to the lengthy conditioning period?

No, this product was discussed at length a couple weeks ago, but the short answer is, forced carbonation is not a replacement for conditioning.

Yes. Carbonation is one thing, conditioning is another. There's no short cut to conditioning.

Even keggers who care about their beer, let it condition for a couple weeks before dispensing it.

+1 Just cause it has bubbles, doesn't mean it's ready to drink.
