Haro V4 2005 vs. Gary Fisher

Hi guys, anyone have experience with these bikes? Am I getting ripped off? Which one should I get? I'd appreciate anyone's expert advice. Thanks all.

Haro V4 2005 hardtail for $550:

Suspension - Manitou 6 100mm Travel
Tektro IO Disk Breaks
9-speed Shimano Deore w/ LX Rear Derailleur

Gary Fisher Piranha 2007 hardtail for $400 (like new, used only 3 times):

Suspension - Manitou Axel Elite w/TPC Lockout | 100mm travel
Componentry - Shimano Deore rear derailleur + shifters + Alivio front derailleur | Shimano M410 42/32/22 crank + Avid BB5 mechanical disc brakes + Alloy platform

I would also say Piranha. It has lower end derailleurs compared to the Haro, but MUCH better brakes and comparable components the rest of the way around.
