I give this device 5 stars because it's really great for the price. I had been looking for a long time for something that would hold my camera while making a timelapse. I used this device with both my compact and my DSLR. I didn't want to put a heavy lens on my DLSR and a light 35mm worked really well. I haven't tried with a heavier lens at this point, but I wouldn't make a timelapse with a heavy lens anyway.
The only thing that bugged me in the beginning was that the direction of motion (the arrows) are hidden when the camera is on top of the Flow -Mow. But it always rotates to the left anyway, so it's not a big deal.
The motion is smooth and lasts for 2 hours to complete a full resolution, which makes the TL movie much more smooth. I really like this little thing! Somebody mentioned that it's ticking with some noise. I shot outside and didn't pay attention to it. Of course, while shooting videos, this might be a problem. However, for me, I eliminate video sound in editing and add sound later, so it's ok.
For clean sound recording it's always better to record sound separately anyway.
