Mama to Elsa Louise: 2/10, 13lbs 8 oz and Oscar Allen: 7/12, 13lbs 8 oz
Target seems to have a lot of them set up so you could maybe try them out a bit, then check second hand "mama" shops if the kind you like isn't in the budget?
We now have a Graco one and love it too. It is basically a toy storage though since DD naps and sleeps on a mattress on the floor so that she can't roll out of bed and hurt herself. She will however play in it for short periods of time.
Oh, and if you're short like me, putting a sleeping baby down in one is impossible anyway. Which I didn't realize until afterwards, of course. I cannot reach the bottom without overbalancing - definitely couldn't do it while holding him and trying to ease him down while asleep.

When we were looking at them though, DH noticed that there is a wide range in the thickness and quality of the matresses in the graco line. The cheapest kind have really thin and flimsy pads and they seem to get nicer as the price goes up. We got ours on sale for 60% off at toys r us and so got the top of the line one because it had the nicest mattress pad. I dunno if it makes any difference.
