I have the Hovarter leg vise and have no regrets. It is smooth, fast, high quality, and holds work excellent. I was also looking for more reviews and found it strange there were not more, but the ones I found were always good and purchased it. I think it is just a small company who could do a lot more public relations to promote their great product. Also a majority of woodworkers just aren't looking for public attention and don't post pictures and movies.
