I plan on buying one of these as my first AR. They're in a decent price range and have all the standard AR pieces that make it a good starting platform. Plus the customer service is nice, I've wanted a black rifle for awhile but it will probably be another year or two before I can afford one.
Check out Vance's in Columbus - they have a great selection you can fondle in person...some pretty good prices too. And they have layaway.
