Advice for entry level bike: Raleigh/Giant/Haro?

I've been looking around for an entry level mountain bike, and I've stopped by three local bike shops - each has recommended a different brand/model. Can anyone comment on these models, and give me some advice? I believe they are all front-suspension with disc brakes.

Can anyone comment on these models, and give me some advice? I believe they are all front-suspension with disc brakes. The models and approx prices are: Raleigh Mojave 4.0 ($350), Haro Flightline Sport ($430), Giant Yukon ($500). The Giant looked the "beefiest", but it's also the most expensive. I don't plan on doing anything too crazy like taking 10' jumps, so what is a good, low maintenance, quality bike to go with? Feel free to recommend other brands/models. Thanks.
