We feed the birds year around from multiple feeders and this one is the bomb.
I don't think you will find a heavier-made feeder than this one. We no longer use cheap-made feeders because the squirrels and raccoons just demolish them in a short time -- there is no way to eliminate that problem so we just buy quality feeders and live with the issue.
Not a lot of birds can feed on this unit at one time but I still like it a lot as I have multiple feeders and no one starves at my house.

We've been using this bird feeder for a few weeks.
It works well enough. The birds spill some seed but no more than is usual. The gravity feed system seems to work well and has not clogged. However, we are using a small seed mix. If you were using "all sunflower seeds" then I don't think it would clog and not drop. We've had no problem with squirrels even though we have a lot of them.
The window is a piece of plastic but seems good enough for the job. The metal construction is sturdy. The color scheme is unobtrusive.
A couple points to mention:
1) Any bird feeder you put up is going to have a mess under it, where the birds drop seeds and shells. So before you buy one make sure you are putting it over grass or some other area. Birds can be messy eaters.
2) If you are really a bird lover, plant some shrubs that birds like and let the birds eat it as it grows. This is supposed to be a lot healthier for them. However, a lot of the birds who come to our feeder are house sparrows and I'm not too worried about them eating freshly grown millet.
