This was a waste of my money, and I am surprised that it got so many good reviews on Amazon. It is possible I got a defective piece, and the quality of manufacture has degraded over time...
Maybe you always get what you pay for.
As you can see for yourself, the bubble is so small compared to the markers, that it is impossible to get a proper level.
The 3 viles are not perpendicular to each other, and since they cross each other, they are not necessarily wasy to read.
The "dove tail" of the hotshoe is very tight indeed, and gets "filed" every time you insert it into the hotshoe, and leaves behind some plastic dust as a reminder.
The picture posted on Amazon is quite misleading, since it hides all the defects I have mentioned above.

All in all, my advice is avoid this product and buy something else
That said, overall I think this is about as good as this kind of device gets. Maybe some day I'll try one of the $30 units, but for the person looking to ensure that their camera is "pretty darn close to level", I think this unit is hard to beat.
I use it for many camera-leveling tasks, but usually not for setting up panoramas (for those I prefer my trusty Novoflex pano base). Using the Cowboystudio unit will very likely help you to quickly level the camera. Used in conjunction with a tripod-mounted level, it will probably get you close enough to do some very good pano shooting as well.
The reason I bought this unit--and would do so again--is that I prefer the three-axis level approach over 2-axis and bubble levels. It lets me see what's happening very easily.
The K5 has a built in level on 2 axes but I bought this to play with and to put on my other older Pentax.
I actually checked this level on a carpenter's level.
It wasn't level. Save your money.
I ended up buying a couple bulls-eye levels to glue on my tripods.
