Low cost tripod

I'm looking for a low cost tripod and i found this review: http://www.videomaker.com/article/8866/
Since i can buy it for 55 ( http://www.digitalwonderworld.de/pro...oducts_id/8344 ), do you think is a good one to use with a XH A1?

Thanks.

this tripod is "designed for beginning to intermediate videographers". The XH A1 is definetly not a beginners or intermediate piece of equipment. Are you going to an XH A1 on something that cheap? I would never do that. It's better if you save up and get a good tripod. In this industry economizing will degrade quality. I chose to wait as it's not worth spending money on cheap things.

I know you are right... but my budget is kinda short right now (just bought the camera) and i really need a tripod. I was looking at a Manfrotto 190 with 701rc2 or 700rc2 head, but since i found this one i wanted to know others' opinions because if it was good, i would save some cash for now.
