Depends what you expect out of them. We bought a PVC West Marine inflatable with roll up aluminum floor. It lasted us about ten years when we started getting some degredation of the fabric and replaced it. I wouldn't buy a PVC dink if I was in the tropics, but it worked out to $100/yr for us.
We've since switched to a port-a-bote. Should last longer, rows easier, doesn't puncture, it's light and ugly enough that no one would steal it.
