Hey, ya I did see that video. But it isn't so much a review than an Advert for "cowboystudios" products.

I guess the main thing I'm looking for from a review is someone to tell me just how low quality this tripod is... compared to the Sirui T005 ideally.

So, I am about to pull the trigger on getting the Sirui T005 Travel Tripod. It seems to have all the features I'd like, plus the leg locks seem more versatile for setting the angle.

BUT.. then I stumbled on this even CHEAPER Chinese offering

Anyone have any experience with this tripod? Its $50 cheaper than the Sirui, and I understand the quality will suffer... but at this price point, I have to do some research into it. Amazon.com has no user reviews on it just yet.....

Don't know if you saw this video from 'cowboystudio' on this tripod:
