Just get it from the dealer. Much better to support the local man rather than a big corporation. As for the $279 SRM-230 model, it's a great commercial grade trimmer, and will last for years and years. The SRM-230's are very heavily used in my area, alongside the Stihl FS 80 and FS 110. I would recommend it highly (although the Stihl FS 80 is alot lighter and has more power). The Echo's do have a much nicer feel than the Stihl's, just my opinion though. As for the comment about Echo's being extremely simple to work on, it's very true. Try all the commercial brands out (they are all very highly reliable if maintained when it comes down to it), and pick the one you like the best. For me, I don't like the Shindaiwa's and RedMax's that I have because their shafts are sloped down short, and aren't suited for taller people like Echo's and Stihl's, which have a higher angle on their shafts. Just get what you like.
