I'd rather have a quality unit than 2 cheaper ones. Check on the boards and find someone to help you build a couple of Homebrews.

They are really the ticket!

For $400 and if that's all you can afford on trail cams for the year, I'd run with 2 cheaper models instead of 1. Simply....you can cover more ground without losing a TON on picture quality and trigger speed.

Cuddeback Capture, Moultrie 40 series, Moultrie 60 series, Scoutguard, etc...

I would also!
However, in my case or thought process, I'm worried about thieves...

So I bought the cheapest I could find. As of last Jan 2008 the WildView's (2 meg) were two for $100.
4-SD 512k cards = $25.
16-Rechargeable "c" batteries w/ charger = $60
I can now scout leaving my camera out for a few weeks and when I retrieve them,
I simply swap out the batteries and cards and relocate them to a new spot for more scouting without going home.
Of course I'm so darn excited when I have pictures I almost pee my pants, while driving home to view them on my
computer, kind of like a male dog with his red thingy out!!!

I can cover twice as many spots for scouting than with only one camera!
My main focus is weather the deer have antlers or not, I'm not concerned about picture quality.
Although the age old saying of "you get what you pay for" can come into play with other features like,
trigger speed, battery life, longevity, etc...

Good luck and have a blast with it, I sure do!!!

I'd go with quality over quantity. Reconyx are spendy but they won't miss a thing like allot of the others will.

Depends on what you are looking for? Quality pictures or a scouting tool?

I bought mine because I wanted to see what was on the land. Wasn't really looking for high end photos, but did get some. Originally my wife bought me one of the $100 Moultries and it worked great and then started having issues. Moultrie offered me an upgrade to the next camera up and I love it. Never misses a pictures and takes some really nice ones too. My buddy bought the I series on ebay and paid under $200 for it with a sd card and remote.
