I have a 7" tablet, and a 10" tablet. In some ways, the 7" tablet is nicer - easier to handle, easier to hold, closer to the traditional paperback book page size.
It is sufficient for viewing videos at a reasonable distance - for example, at the gym it sits on the control panel of the eliptical machines, does not cover the text put up by the screen, and is large enough to enjoy when watching a TV series or a movie.
The 10" is nicer for watching video, but it more effort to carry around.
One big difference - this may not apply to all - is that the electronics in both take up about the same amount of space. In a larger tablet, they can pack in more batteries, which is why a larger tablet can have a longer run time than a smaller tablet.
My 7" tablet is a far East cheapie, but I still prefer it for some things. Had it the nice display (mine is 800x480, good ones as 1024x600), and better touch technology (mine is pressure sensitive, not capacitive), and Bluetooth, it would be a knockout. It does support a microSD card, which my 10" tablet does not, and I have found that to be a bit of an issue.
