I was thinking more on the lines of stability. I've read that the park is heavy, I assume because it is a steel base, where the feedback is aluminum. That may make it more inconvenient to move a lot, but I'd trade that for it not wanting to tilt when pulling on grip tape or torqueing a bottom bracket. I've also read that the feedback aluminum coating comes off if any solvents get on it.

I am interested to hear what actual users think of theirs and if they have any problems with them. Also, if there are other stands that are more highly recommended that I haven't heard about. Is it even worth it to go with one of these two as opposed to a cheap no-name brand that is half the price?

I fully understand the benefits and limitations of this type of stand, but know that my problems with the clamp type will be solved with this type, and if I need to use the clamp, I already have one of those.
