From my personal experience, the Seagull Entourage ($300) and Yamaha FG700S/730S ($200/300) represent the best value under $500 (I haven't tried any Washburns). I prefer the warm cedar tone of the Entourage - the Yamahas sound almost tinny to me - but you can't go wrong with either.
Online reviews of Washburns are very positive though.
Any of these would mae a great beginner guitar.
Thanks for these deals TLC. I wish I'd seen them earlier; not that I'm not happy with my Entourage, but I just didn't know they were out there - I might've gotten a guitar a lot earlier.

Just bought one of the WD10SNS. The few reviews available of the WD10S were good, and at that price for a cheap guitar, I figure not too much can go wrong. Street market value is only 199 or so, so this is around 25% off. Here's the guitar in action, different finish.

This is definately a great deal and an ideal beginner to advanced player guitar. The fact that this is a solid top guitar is what makes it a winner. Laminate guitars "typically" do not resonate as well as a solid top (meaning sound won't project as well). Solid tops also improve and sound better with age. There are pros and cons with laminate tops vs solid tops, so I won't go into that too much (like opening up a topic of which oil is better, synthetic of conventional for some players), but for an acoustic (non-electric), solid will give you a longer instrument life.
Plus it already has a bone nut and sadle. Most economy guitars give you plastic nut and saddle. Plastic works, but you will bone has better tone. This would be @ $100 to upgrade an acoustic to bone or synthetic bone (micarta) (its the labor, not the cost of the material to hand file the pieces).
The only thing one would want to do extra with this guitar is to have the action set up professionally (string height at the nut and sadle). A common issue for low end guitars (usually set up way too high).
