I've used the Eheim Auto Feeder for a few years though I've only used 2mm and 3mm pellets in it. You can always check the Product Reviews section to see what other members like or dislike.

Is there a particular reason you want to use an auto feeder such as vacation or such?

I would only use an auto feeder for fry that need to be fed 4X daily if I need to be away for more than a couple of days.

For everyday, if the feeder malfunctions it could cause more trouble than it solves. Also feeding time is a good opportunity to observe each fish, check the temp of the tank and just enjoy the fish.

I would use it strictly while on vacations.
Unless you are going to be gone for well over a week, I would not bother. I go to visit family for a week and a half every year and my fish are fine when I get home. Female Mbuna don't eat for 3 to 4 weeks when holding eggs with no ill effects.
