Yes I would recommend FTDNA. Simple reasons: It is the only company testing the whole mitochondrial dna, and keeping abreast of new SNP discoveries for Y chromosome haplogroups. It is reasonably cheap.
Geno 2.0 was a bad joke, waste of money and totally non supportive. FullGenomes is very expensive and the data found will take time to work out where the new found SNPs fit in the haplogroup phylogenetic tree. 23andMe does mediocre haplogroup SNP testing and what it does is outdated. AncestryDNA is a money sucking leech.
Problems with FTDNA are slowness in processing dna samples and their website is not user friendly. The Origins test is not worth doing, better go to 23andMe or AncestryDNA for ancestry or finding your Cherokee princess.
In summary, I would recommend Family Tree DNA to a friend.
