I used to have that cheap one on my scout before I upgraded to the gingko one. when I had the vpi version I decided i was better off just using an old lp to cover the platter. why? because as you surmise the budget dust cover did not keep dust off the tonearm/cartridge, and the fit to the platter was looser than an lp so it did not do as good a job keeping dust off the platter (most important place to keep dust free imo) as an old 3cent lp. and for what its worth an old lp on the platter is what I use on my new table. my $.02, others I'm sure have found that cover to be effective, but I'd say keep the gingko and be careful putting it on.
