    Sorry if I am posting too many threads, I keep doing more research and keep getting more questions.
    Anyways, I am planning on getting my first tablet. I will mainly use it for watching videos so I would like a 10 inch one, but am on a budget so a cheap chinese one would work. However I am not sure if it would be worth it. Should I just play it safe and get a Nexus 7, and just get used to watching videos on a smaller screen for now?

    IMO i wouldn't buy a cheap Chinese tablet to save money (You might regret in the long run) I would wait maybe the price might be right by Christmas time to buy the (Nexus 7) or save a bit more money and get the (Samsung Galaxy Tab 2)?

    Its your money spend it how you like, I only buy Chinese tablets, simply get more for my money. If Google ever gets serious about putting out a tablet that conforms to tablet standards at a reasonable price I might be interested. I am currently waiting for Novo Captain to be released, that will be my next tablet.

    Is ainol a good manufacturer? From what I've read there 7 inch tablets are very nice, haven't heard much about the Hero though

    I could go up to $250 if I absolutely needed to, but I would prefer to stay at $200.

    The specs look great. I just wish they had a 4 by 3 format model.
