Because of the light weight, it's easier to knock over if you bump into it, so you might want to consider attaching a sandbag if that's a concern for you.
UPDATE 10 Nov 2013: Just wanted to add that I used this tripod recently during a landscape workshop in Yosemite National Park. I learned that you DO NOT want to use it with the center post fully extended if your shutter speed is below 1/90. At full extension, even the slap of the shutter from a dSLR can introduce a slight vibration that is noticeable as minor motion blur in the image; the slower the shutter speed, the more noticeable. For snapshots or images destined solely for the Internet at screen resolution, this may not be an issue for you. For anything that is going to be used at large sizes, it's definitely an issue. This only occurred with the center post at full extension. At half extension, I didn't see this problem. I stand by my earlier statements and am not deducting any stars. This sort of thing is only to be expected in a lightweight tripod.
Cons: Not a deal breaker, but having to flip the legs up and over to fit them into the included bag is time consuming and twisting the head into the correct position tends to cause some scratches on the leg assemblies. This can be avoided but requires some effort.
I went on a night tour of the DC monuments that wasn't exactly "photographer friendly." At each stop we had 15 - 20 minutes to get out, walk from the van to the monument, take our photos and get back on board. I really had to hustle and was happy to not have a heavy tripod to lug around. I was able to extend the tripod while walking, setup my shots, and then fold the tripod back up on the walk back. Not once was I concerned that my camera was at risk of falling over, and all my shots were sharp and free from vibration blur, even with up to 90 second exposures.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the included ball head doesn't have a separate pan lock. I solved that problem by taking the Joby Ballhead X off my GorillaPod. As a bonus the Joby also has a Swiss-Arca quick-release clamp to match up with the L-brackets I use on my cameras.
