Cajón of my own

Should I buy a cajón? I know the best thing would be to go to my local big box drum store (ba-dum-dum) and try them out, but in the meantime...Can I get something in the hundred dollar range that sounds good, isn't too fragile, and is portable-ish? Are there particular brands/models that are considered particularly good value, can't-go-wrong choices? Also, I'm 5'2" -- Should I be worried about getting something too big? I'm interested in getting a cajon because it seems versatile and reasonably easy to get nice sounds out of it even while learning. Is that a safe assumption, or is there a better choice in the portable-hand-drum, sitting-around-playing-music-with-friends department (e.g., bongos, djembe...)? Have I asked too many questions for one post?

Should I get this
one (Meinl Headliner)? Do they make one with a backrest and matching ottoman?
