Entry level - my first bike. Opinions on a 2008 Diamondback Response Comp ?

Looking at getting my first mountain bike. I'm not looking to do anything serious; just something active to do on nice afternoons. I don't want to buy a complete POS to start off with, but then again it would be stupid to drop alot of $ when I'm just beginning and don't know if the interest will hold over time.

I've been browsing local ads and finally came across what I think is a good deal. 2008 Diamondback Response comp ( http://www.bikepedia.com/QuickBike/B...e#.UQscxGeVCgo ). Assuming when I go to see it it's not beat to hell, it fits me well, feels right, etc, is it worth $175 (assuming I can't haggle him down further )? From my research it is the correct frame size for me.

Any opinions welcome, and thanks!
