A buddy of mine just bought 2 of the cheap ones off of Ebay. He got two bikes shipped to his door for under $500. I went over to his house Saturday and rode one around a bit. Kinda sucked because it was showering off and on so the streets and sidewalks were all wet. They seem like decent bikes for the price. I'm sure the more expensive ones have their advantages, but for what we would use them for, the cheaper the better. I'll probably end up with one after a while.
