From what I've seen the Alesis dm5 pro looks like the best low end model for the money.
Just go and try it out. You'll probably be told to get a roland v drum, I don't know many people who can afford them though.

Yep the Rolands are quite expensive. I have a Yamaha DTXpress 3. I don't know how much it would be since the DTXpress 4 has come out, but it's pretty good. Sounds good recorded as well.
I don't know much about Alesis so I can't help you there, sorry

Well, do you want it to make sounds, or are you fine having it as a MIDI controller for software drums? They have a new kit with the interesting SURGE cymbals that's just that.

Yeah, of course. You get the MIDI track and a plugin (the drums comes with a light version) in a sequencer like Cubase, and you'll get a sound as long as the plugin goes to the main output.

There are ways to bounce MIDI so it becomes an audio track. This does take some time, and isn't easy to correct, but you can then modify it like normal audio.

Btw, does it have to be as a drum kit? There are plenty of high quality triggers like AKAI MPD and Korg pad series (including the supercheap nanoPAD) that can do MIDI (and some can even accept a pedal to do beats kick-style).
