Best Manual/Programmable Slider?

I am thinking of getting a slider. I already have a skater dolly, a tripod dolly with track, and a nice camera jib.

As to sliders, it seems that moving it by hand compared to cranking a wheel is less desirable, but I shall defer.

I would want something that I can use both manually, and can program in a a slide for a time lapse, BUT, a video time lapse, not necessarily a still camera time lapse. I don't need a shaky one that wobbles or sticks on the track like I hear....

Are there ones that are both manual and automatic?

Philip Bloom recommends this...

I have no personal experience of this as it's waaay out of my price range, but it looks pretty impressive to me.
