If you want my humble opinion, you're better off buying whey protein, eat above maintenance AND, in the times you find necessary, making your own mass gainer at home, which will be cheaper and of better quality than anything you buy.
EDIT: In all honesty, many mass gainers are made from sugars and lower quality carb sources... Just make your own at home.

EDIT: Also, any whey brand will serve you. Choose one which dissolves well and tastes good, and that's not very expensive too.

About using whey after a workout... That's a common bodybuilding myth, you can see it disproved in several threads in this forum.

Optimum Nutrition my personal favorite Whey protein
and for mass Granola works wonders- my favorite is Heartland oats
smoothies are a great way to make your own mass gainer
Fruit like bananas and berries are almost all carbs and blend some oats or granola into your protein/milk/peanut butter- bingo and they are delicious[300 Spartan Crew][Helot Trial Member] 5/18/2012

mass gainers are just protein shakes with cheap dextrose or maltodextrin in them. i would never pay for a mass gainer.
whey protein is the expencive part and massgainers allow the company to get away with putting in less protein and filling them with cheap sugars.Certified Exercise Physiologist by the American College of Sports Medicine
