Here's a comparison of the Manfrotto to the above-mentioned Cheesycam pick:

The second video down shows a size comparison, but focuses on the Velbon for functionality. Looking on the B&H website, I notice that the Manfrotto gets terrible points for the smoothness of the head, while the waay cheaper Velbon gets great reviews. Maybe the owners don't know how to adjust drag.

As I said above, I have a version of the Velbon head on a Pearstone tripod, just for fast setups and smooth pans - I also have a massive Manfrotto 3051 with tripod with a set of dolly wheels for my jib setup. I'd give the Velbon head a shot - for 30 bucks you can use it as a paperweight if you don't like it. It's a perfect pick for a slider, small dolly, etc..
