Should I use Geo Tech Fabric when installing paver patio?

Some companies use a Geo-Tech Fabric put over the soil before they lay down the crushed rock, sand, and pavers. It's rather expensive and it's supposed to keep the crushed rock from sinking into the soil over time, but is it worth it or necessary? Or is it just as good to use landscape fabric?

Don't know if it's worth the investment. It's about $2 / sft at my local paver producer. For a 500 sft patio, that's a $1,000, but Ebay has it for $140 for 500 sft. Non Woven Polypropylene Geotextile Fabric 4oz 5 x 100 | eBay

Should I use it?
