Need Advice on new bike

Hi All,

I am looking to buy a mountain bike and have a budget of 300, but ideally the lower price the better.

I am looking for something of good quality, that will last.

Will be using the bike casually both on and off road, and doing the occasional green trail.

I have heard good things about the VooDoo Bantu, but then the Carrera Parva is 120 cheaper.

Obviously the Parva is not as well spec'd, my questions are.

1) Will the Parva be suitable for what I need?
2) Will front suspension make a difference?
3) Will hydraulic disk brakes make a difference?

Thanks in advance!
