Hard to give any advice on an off-brand low-end table. So many things could keep it from being good over the 5 years or more you want to keep it.

I've seen some China made tables put together perfectly and they play like crap, especially after a couple years. And I've seen some that play consistent and have stayed solid.

At your price range, you need to either go with these guys or look for a nice used table - which should be fairly easy to find in your area - but then you can't be too choosey on stain colors.

To get a new American Heritage table - www.pooltablesusa.com (http://www.pooltablesusa.com) (they are the private label for Costco) - you'll need to negotiate, but you'd probably spend just over $2,000. You could also get a table from a local manufacturer - www.beachbilliards.com (http://www.beachbilliards.com) - but again over $2,000.

In summary, Chinese tables aren't all bad, just inconsistent.

(I think I'd try calling a few table mechanics and ask about some used tables.)

Good luck.
