Review: So far after about a month of having it on had no real problems with the QEV. I first took it out for a test fire setting my WAS board to 20 bps and on nppl full auto. i read that guns can go about 20bps so i set it there to see if it was true. aired up my gun, filled it with 200 rounds and began to shoot...all i saw was a string of paint ball on top of balls and nothing but a huge splatter of paint. about 3 balls broke out of the 400 i shot mostly in the chamber not because of misfeeds, so the QEV did what it was suppose too. though after about 300 rounds my cyclone began to fail on me. it would only feed by manual feeding with the push rod. i was told it was probably the cyclone rachet so i took it apart and rachet was in good condition so i decided maybe i need to lube the cyclone tube where the piston is that activates the feeder. and presto problem was fixed, cyclone began to work again.

It turned out to be the plastic ratchet which was worn on the botton corner where the axel and ratchet meet. it was hardly a scratch, but enoguh to make my cyclone fail. i got the new tech t vortex mod which should help i think. will update once test fired.

edit: the new tech t's vortex mod with metal rathet and axel works superbly. it fires fast and smooth. QEV works great shootin semi with WAS set to max 20 bps. i can walk it pretty good about 13-15 bps. it seems that the plastic ratchet is no match for the QEV and 20 bps.
Conclusion: This definitly does what it says it is suppose too...though i hear some guns dont like it which seems like bad care from the user, not palmers fault. defnitely worth the 37$ for that additonal balls per second...if you like fast shooting this is the mod to do.
