So what kind of slider? Something with skateboard wheels on 1/4" tube is not the same as a solid original slider.

Generally, with the cheaper sliders there is less rigidity so you can't avoid some inherent shake/vibration. As for a consistent speed... well that's just being a good operator.

Depending on your setup it may help to load the sled's base with some additional weight (small shot bags) as this will lower the center of gravity below the camera and help with instability.
