NEVER go by reviews on guitar center or related sites. It's usually a bunch of stupid people reviewing products with which they have no idea how to use.

Anyway, in my experience, I would save up. I found out the hard way that cheap PA systems aren't really worth it. I would save up some more under you can get a better one.

Chech out a Yamaha Stage Pass. Pleasently surprised by the sound. The mixer is built right into the back, or you can remove it and mount it on a regular mic stand. The whole set up with 10" speakers is $900 to $1000 depending on where you buy.
If you were willing to spend a little more, however, I'd go with the new JBL 500 series. Best sounding PA I've ever played through, and 15" speakers are enough to suite any venue you're likely to play.

What are you planning on using it for? Gigging or just practice? Just vocals, I assume?

They're fine for practice, but have nowhere near enough power for regular gigging with a band - and the speakers sound horrible.

Try and save another $100 if you can and look on Craiglist/eBay - that's the only way you'll get a PA good enough for regular gigging in this price range.

I've got the phonic 620. i got it instead of an acoustic amp. Use t for so much more now. Great bang for the buck. had it almost 4 years with no issues.

we are mostly planning on using it for practice and just vocals, but i guess having one that we could also use during gigs would be good

I doubt it. This was pretty cost effective. The only thing I got separate were mics also. Mine is a 6 channel and everyone can plug in. It turned my house into the jamming place over night. Now they only bring their amps if they want to. People really don't like carrying alot of stuff.

+1 to phonic equipment. I have the 720 powered mixer and it's full of win. I've gigged it twice monthly for 2 years odd and it's still holding up.

That looks good, only difference as far as I can tell are the speakers. The woofer on the cheaper one is 2 inches smaller, and the more expensive one just looks better quality.
