Manfrotto Name Recognition and Brand Snobbery
No Hook on Center Post (especially with limited leg angle)
No Bubble Level
Pan and Tilt movement resistance adjustment is not great
Bigger and Heavier than expected. Not a tripod you strap to the side of a camera sling for most normal people. "Compact" had me thinking that it would be my primary tripod for travel. In my opinion (which is why this is neutral), this is too big for a Travel. I would not see it as something you carried on your sling around an amusement park with the family.
No forward/rearward adjustment on the center of gravity for the position of the camera. However, it seems to be in a pretty good spot for DSLRs with medium to medium-large sized lenses. A Sony Nex with a Pancake lens will be back-heavy. It fits a Samsung NX1 and 70D with most lenses just fine.
If you make tripods and you don't put a bubble level on the head, you're just being an *sshole. It's 2015. A Bubble level cost of production is less than a dollar. The only reason they don't is to "differentiate" it from more premium products. The lack of a hook on the center post wouldn't be as big a deal if the legs didn't have limited extension.
Head Fluidity. The adjustment is from the twisting of the handle. It's not great. If you want to do a shot that pans and pulls focus at the same time, or tilts and pulls focus at the same time, it's not easy. It'll require several takes to get it just right. The movement is not accelerate and decelerate smoothly with one hand, sometimes even with two hands (but if you use two hands, now you can't pull focus). I shot the same panning which pulling focus shot with this Manfrotto vs a Fluid filled shot and it's noticeable. Can you get away with it? maybe. Would you want this as your primary tripod on a video project for a paying customer? NO. Would it be fine for a family vacation video? Probably. Would it be okay for a B-Cam on a shoot? Maybe.
I get it, this is the supposed "entry-level" tripod. I'm not expecting a fluid filled head at this price from a major name brand. But if you leave off the cheap stuff (bubble level, center hook), then you either didn't think it through well enough, or you are being d*cks about it.
Current price of this tripod is $100 as of this writing.
For $45-$50 you can get an Off-Brand that has about the same features: Fairly Sturdy, Non-Fluid Filled Head, Somewhat compact.
For $100 Off-Brand you can get a Fluid Filled Head with forward/rearward adjustment and Bubble Level and a Hook on the center post.
BUT this is a Manfrotto, and if brand recognition matters to you then you should at least know how much you're paying to get it.
