I just set my DVX100 up on mine and am having a blast with it. It is a bad ass little steadycam type device. I am going to use it this week on a few things. I might run around some tonight with it.

I have one, its pretty fun but a pain in the ass too setup, even just puting the camera on it can be a bitch and I am usually not in the position to spend any time fucking with little screws and crap. A decent monopod (or a tripod even) can work as a ghetto steadycam if I am in a pinch. Right now my glidecam is in the box it came in, on a shelf in my garage.

SatanJR...I set mine up last night, balanced it and got some cool shots with it. Tonight I am going to head out to shoot some overhead subway stuff with it for this B-Roll on a project I am working on.

I've got the 2000. With the camera on it the thing is just too damn heavy to use for more than a minute or two.

655321...I have the chest harness which makes it much easier to use for longer periods of time.

I'll definately have to get the harness if I'm ever going to use it. I was afraid the harness would degrade the performance too much. What do you think?
