Default Android Tablet?

So I've been looking for a relatively cheap android tablet for sometime now, I get paid tomorrow, but only have about 130 to spend on one am currently deciding between a nook color, with a cracked screen, or one of the cheap android tablets with resistive screens. Also, I saw this on ebay, and wanted to know if anyone knows if its a good tablet, since i cant find any reviews for it.

If you can't find a review, that's never a good idea to buy it.
I'd get the Asus Transformer. It's $399 for a 16gb and it's pretty sweet.
Don't go cheap on a tablet, otherwise you'll be stuck with a bad tablet later.

Yeah I was originally saving for the transformer or the galaxy tab 10.1, but money problems for my fam have come up, so I wont really be able to save much for a few paychecks
EDIT: Do you think the nook color is a good deal?

It's just a waste to buy the cheap tablets... buy a transformer or iconia....(hell, find a touchpad)

The Nook Color is a good deal as a bargain tablet. Though you'll have to either purchase the microSD (and boot off of there in order to run full Android; won't void warranty) or go through the steps and root it.

$250 brand new.

Don't cheap out on a tablet, or any tech device in that matter. You'll regret it later.

Save your money, invest. Be patient.

If i were you I would just look around for a 16gb touchpad if you can find one xD
I managed to get one 32gb for 160 and looks like if you don't like web os which i'm loving you will be able to install android 2.2 and soon honeycomb!

Yeah i considered that one, but if im gonna be saving up 330 for it, I might as well save up the $70+ extra and get the transformer, cause i really want it with the dock lol although that might take extra time xD

I havent even clicked on the link yet, but im pretty sure your probably suggesting the Lenovo Idea pad a1 xD

EDIT:lol yeah I saw it earlier and am defenitely considering that one, I wanted a honeycomb tablet though but that one does seem good, I do hope the 8gb comes here though. Engadget said only the 16GB and 32GB models will be shipped to the US, but $50 isnt bad at all.

Look at and potentially wait for the Amazon Kindle tablet.
