Which should I get, cheaper sooner and save a little longer for the more expensive one ?
I've owned both the audio technica LP60, and LP120.
Save your money and get the more expensive LP 120.
In the long run, it's a better investment. Upgradable and better overall quality.

The Audio Technica AT-LP60 Turntable or: How I learned to stop Worryring About the Equipment Specs and Love the Music.
Yep. At one time I fretted on how to afford the turntable with the lowest wow and flutter, highest signal to noise ratio, heaviest platter, and constructed from the most exotic materials. Add to that the turntable had to have a mind-numbingly complex set-up procedure that would make launching the Sp...

Question regarding a turntable i saw at Walmart is this a good brand? I've heard that Crosley (The current suitcase vinyl player) that i have, ruins your vinyls. Any advice helps! Thanks in advance!
The Audio Technica LP60 is a solid basic starter table. That "LPGO" is a strange Wal-Mart exclusive and I'm not sure how (or if) it differs from a "regular" LP60. But I think it's essentially the same model, and while quite basic and limited compared to more expensive models, it's a definite step up from a suitcase style player.

It does its job
I recently wanted to see what the vinyl rage was all about. I've got two old turntable laying around my house, but I can't even find the styluses for them for under $150. Being a college student, I can't afford to shell out that kind of dough on something I may or may not like... And who knows what ...

ISO a turntable for a gift
The demand for vinyl has meant a lot more people buying up all the turntables, not to mention the thrift stores trying to make a quick buck by jacking up their prices. Are you able to save up maybe $120? That would get you an Audio Technica LP60 which is a reasonable starter turntable. Do you also need speakers?

Good for the price, and upgradable
This is what it is, a decent turntable at a great price. I bought it for more than the seventy clams it's currently going for, and don't regret it. I should note that I am only playing new vinyl, stuff I picked up since my last birthday. Some of this needed cleaning out the box to remove static/pops...

What's the best price point to buy a first turntable at?
I also have been quite happy with the Insignia turntable from Best Buy which goes on sale often for $60 and you can easily upgrade the already serviceable AT cartridge that comes with it. There's also the Audio Technica AT-LP60 (the Walmart variant's been spotted in the $150 price range lately) which is a perfect stepping stone for newbies. Price doesn't have to be a barrier of entry as long as you make reasonably smart choices.
