I have the 190CX3 and am REALLY happy with it. It's really light compared to a lot of other tripods of that size.
If you plan to travel much, note that with head removed it will not fit well inside hard carryon luggage - I bought a medium size Eagle Creek duffle bag. It fits lengthwise in there and has satisfied even airport agents with tape measures on international flights that it is exactly short enough. Inside the duffle bag you can also fit two smallish camera bags (though at that point it's a very heavy bag).
There's no such thing as a tripod a beginner cannot use well.
One other thing of note is IF (very rare, but it can happen if you are too vigorous in pulling on the legs) one of the legs comes out, you need only take off the leg clamp just above the leg that came out, and put the leg back in with the two black curved pieces that also sit over the leg at the top. There's only one way they fit on well so it's not to hard to put it back together.
If you lose the feet you'll have to buy three new ones.
Manfrotto makes a carrying strap but I did not like it. Op-Tech makes a strap (I bought one on Amazon) that is fairly compact and quick to attach.
