Ive been using those cheapo tripods all these while, and I finally cant stand it anymore (cant seem to hold my camera in place, keeps sliding).

Dont hv a big budget, so thinking of just getting something under $150, and came across this Benro brand in mass sales.

Tripod A200EX + ballhead BH-0

Is the above ok? Has a load of 2.5kg, I seldom go above 2kg so it should be enough for me.

Is this brand recommended?

Thanks

you're not a newbie...
why start a thread in newbies corner?

I use Benro. Seems good so far. I've read a number of negative reviews on this brand. Also read many positives.
