Initially you have to attach the replaceable rubbery guide strip and make a cut through it, which then gives you an extremely accurate edge to line up with your mark. I've made a couple of hundred cuts with it and this rubber guide doesn't look any the worse for wear. This works so well, If your cuts not right, you've probably marked it wrong.
I haven't felt the need to use clamps with the rail; I'm primarily cutting MDF and ply and the rail doesn't move at all on either material, as long as the piece is large enough. If you're cutting smaller pieces, it may be useful to have an offcut of the same thickness in front of and behind the piece to keep the rail flat, and give it a bit more surface to grip.
So why only four stars? Joining the rails. I've got a couple of 1400mm rails, which are perfect for cutting an eight foot length (2440mm). Joining them uses a pair of aluminium bars, one on top, one underneath the rail. Each has four holes, with four little (10mm ish) grub screws. Now, it does work, it's just a bit tedious. It's a most un-Festool experience, and I always feel it slowing me down. Aligning the rails seems a little hit or miss as well, it's possible to join them slightly out, and I have had a couple of slightly bowed cuts due to this. I only work in a workshop, rather than on site, so the obvious answer for me is to spend £200 on a 2700mm single rail. If I did any site work, this would be annoying.
If you have no need to join rails, they're perfect.
This is now my default go to rail when doing 90% of my home improvements.
