Specialized Hardrock- buy?

Any opinions on this bike: http://dallas.craigslist.org/ftw/bik/994723952.html
Any one know about what year it is? I'm looking for a good entry level mountain bike. I'm not going to be doing anything crazy.

It looks like a late 90s Hard Rock. It's a rigid fork bike. That price is a little high for a rigid fork bike, but if he comes down $25, and it's your size, and its what you want, then I'd consider it.

Yep, looks like late 90s model, you might want to look around here for some info since the ad has very little info http://bikepedia.com/Search.aspx?Q=hardrock. If that picture is current, it does look little used. I'd say it's overpriced by about $75 though.
