Review: Purchase: Well, I went from a Tac-5 w/an unpowered hopper, to an E2 cocker that came with an Evo II Egg, which I HATED the look of. I heard the VLocity was one of the best hoppers out there. It was faster than I'd ever need, and didn't look bad. Anyhow, $50 purchase on the forums, and all was good to go.

Experience: No misfeeds. No chops. Fast as hell. No disappointments.

Critisism: I've heard others go thru batteries like crazy, but I popped 2 Duracell Ultra 9v's in there, and they've held up fine for at least 8 cases so far. No complaints there. It's also a little heavy. When I held it next to my Egg, there was a noticable difference in weight. Not too much, but it's def heavier than others I've held. It also doesn't hold NEARLY as much paint as the egg, but that's to be expected. Besides, after the first hopper in a game, it's 140 at a time (per pod) anyhow. The lid is a little tight, but it's definately secure, and I have complete confidence, if I dropped it, it wouldn't pop open. And last but not least, it's quiet when it's got ammo to feed, but when it runs out, watch out because you'll hear it.
Conclusion: Who cares about Rip Drive and board upgrades when the VLocity still feeds faster? And honestly, who needs faster than 30bps anyhow? Paint-wasters, that's who. lol. Honestly, it's a good hopper, and you won't be disappointed.

paintbala5 is right it is one of the lightest loaders on the market.
how is taking 2 9v batteries a a problem.
and it has very good capacity the VLocity holds 200, the eggy holds 195, and the halo holds 160. so it has great capacity.
