2031 - Serger II: maybe I won't have to spend $500?

I spoke to Stacey Leigh today. We got to talking about sergers, and she surprised me: she tells me she spent $300 at Wal-Mart on a Brother serger and is very pleased with it. Looking online, Wal-Mart has one Brother machine listed: the 1034D, which appears to have quite a good reputation around the net. Not only that, but the going price is now right at $200. I'm beginning to wonder if I can go wrong that way. I've left Stacey a message to see which model she has, just to make sure...but she knows her sergers well (she has to, considering the amount of work she does on them!) and if she likes it, I'll take her word for it.

While I was in Austin last weekend, I looked at one that belongs to the lady of the house I stayed at, and watched an instruction video. Between those two, I can see why people think they're complex, but it didn't seem that bad to me. I wonder if there's something I'm missing...
