I have one.  If you want to throw chunks, go for it.  Too big for plugging.  Casts real good, there is a bit of spool wobble under heavy load but not bad especially for $100.  Big comfortable handle.  Nice drag and really like the super fast drag knob. 360 deg from loose to full.  Casting distance is very good.

Do you think I should get this, or a 5000 Daiwa BG for small to medium blues and stripers?

You don’t need anything near this big for small to medium blues and Stripers. I catch them all the time on a Shimano Ranium 4000 but mostly have fished with a 5500 Ultegra.

I would go with the BG you mentioned,that other reel is a monster of a reel.
