Jamis Explorer XR vs Trek 820

I was looking into used mountain bikes for my son and came upon the above 2. Used, they're both in the $125 range but someone has a brand new unassembled 820 for $200. Is one better than the other and is the new on worth the money? My son wants it more for trails than on rough terrain.

Thanx - Pete

Trek 820 is your bike. Good frame, good specification, good vision

Enjoy ..Trek

I checked out the Explorer yesterday and it was a pretty nice bike, but being almost 20yo, is showing it's age. Going to check out the Trek today - is a 16" frame good for a 5'7 and growing boy?
