To make the right decision, web site pricing should fit in with what your marketing goals, what are your services and who are your customers and competitors.
For example, if I were spending major coin already on other advertising methods like yellow book, direct mail, etc... then your website can have a more supportive role of just extending the message the providing some photos.
But if you need or want your site to find new customers, then it's a different story because it's a larger commitment to pages and copy and first impressions. Also too what are your services and where you're at is important. If you're doing high end landscaping in affuelent markets then your website need to fit with that.
So I don't think any single price is the right answer for everyone. The 'get what you pay for' post is certainly true.
