anyone have any reviews on how this cover holds up? I was going to get a BakFlip folding hard cover, but I'm not sure I want to spend that much.

Update: I ordered it tonight.
I will post up a review of it. Just seems like a real good deal since others are close to $400.

I had one on my 03 S10 ZR2 for about a month before I rolled the truck. Its a great cover. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about it. If my Canyon didn't already have a tonneau installed when I bought it, I was ready to order one of these right away.

Its supposed to be delivered today via FedEx. I probably wont get a chance to install it until Friday though. I'll post pictures and a review once I get it installed.

On my first truck, I had the TonneauMaster, which was an excellent rollup cover but kind of pricey. I now have a TruxPort that I bought for two reasons:

1) Price
2) Locking Mechanism

The TruxPort was about $150 less than my TonneauMaster and w/ the positively locking side latches combined w/ the locking tailgate, it's about as secure as you can get w/ a soft tonneau (the TonneauMaster could pop open w/o having the tailgate opened).

I've had mine for over a year now and have no complaints. Installed pretty easily and works just fine. For the money and the flexibility you get (cover + locking ability + rollup feature), it's a great cover (IMO).

I have not experienced ANY water leakage into the bed at all. Better than I expected w/ it.

The other thing I liked about the design was that the profile is relatively flat (fairly low-profile) and the side rails for it go over the bedrails, not extented into the bed. This means your bedrails gain some level of protection by default and that the side rails for the tonneau do not obstruct 2" or so into the bed providing for just a little bit extra clearance in the bed (believe it or not, I did experience problems w/ my previous TonneauMaster where the rails extending into the bed obstructed use of the bed).

The install went smooth except that I had to trim the front off of the factory bedliner. The front bulkhead cover was making the tonneau cover sit at an angle since I dont have any other bed rail covers.

Other than that, it went smooth. I had to make sure the clamps didnt go up into the holes on the underside of the bed rail (theres 1 hole in the front and 1 in the rear on each side). I didnt notice how much our beds taper in until I installed the tonneau cover. For the tension, I just adjusted it to the lowest setting and that works fine. Plenty of room to go tighter as it loosens up.

As SwampFox said, I like the design of the cover rails as they offer bedrail protection and do not inhibit bed space like other covers I have seen.
Next project is to find a way to make a cover to protect the vinyl when it is rolled up. Something like a cover that protects a boat awning when its flipped back.
I will try and get some pictures this week and I'll upload them to my gallery and link them.

I'd like to know how well it seals out the elements.

I have never noticed leakage on my in rain or snow or from ice, including during/after driving or on high wind days. I have checked occasionally as I suspected the seal wasn't as good as my TonneauMaster previously. To my amazement, it has held up just as well for about half the cost.

I dont have a tailgate seal in yet, but from closing the cover and looking around it looks weathertight. However, for what I plan on using it for I dont necessarily need 100% waterproof. Mainly just to carry cargo and still be able to carry 4 people.

So I drove home last night in hard rain for 3.5 hours and everything was still dry in the bed without any tailgate seal. Holds out the water good.

Is your bed liner and over the rails or under the rails type? I'm assuming you wouldn't have to trim an under the rails liner, but I usually assume wrong :)
