Review: I managed to dump all my paint out of it because something caught on the corner of the lid. When I got home I checked the magnets in the lid very closely. They press them into these little plastic holders, which is fine, but they push them in a bit too far, so the plastic sticks up higher than the magnets. Not much, maybe 0.030", but I used a file to grind down the plastic anyway, so the magnet is that much closer to the magnets in the main housing.

The speed seems as advertized. I cranked the microphone sensitivity up so that all I had to do was tap the side of it, and it would empty the entire hopper in about 8 seconds. That's around 20-25bps, just as they said. The sound-activated feature worked seamlessly, well enough that I wasn't even aware of the feeder - as it should be.

Menu navigation is a bit clunky, what with only one button to access everything. Thankfully that's not often, but a good reason to keep the instruct sheet around.

The feed neck is perfectly smooth, which, in my CCM feedneck, still slides around even after I make it really tight. I may sand it slightly just to roughen the surface for better grip.
Conclusion: It works as advertised, and other than the small points above, I like it a lot.
