How much is a good harmonica?

I know with most instruments, buying cheap ones will land you a beginner's instrument at best. However, with harmonicas, I'm seeing massive price ranges and a lot of mixed reviews.
So how much would a good harmonica be priced? Is it possible to get a good one (beyond beginners) for under $50?

And also, is this a good one that will last me a while? http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Swan-Chromatic-Harmonica-10-Hole-40-Key-C-Blues-VIDEO-DEMO-/320960057022?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4abab5cebe

Part of why you see a massive range of prices is because there are different types of harmonicas in addition to different qualities. A relatively expensive 10-hole diatonic is half the price of a cheap chromatic.

So, it comes down to which type you'd like.

10-hole diatonics (aka "blues harp") and what you hear on most blues, rock, country, and folk recordings. They're easily identified in that they only have 10 holes, in one row, with no sharping lever. $30-50. The likes of Hohner Special 20, Marine Band, Blues Harp; Lee Oskar Major Diatonic; Suzuki Manji or BluesMaster, etc... You can easily buy a professional grade one of these under $50 A beginner model 10-hole diatonic can be had for less than $10.

Chromatic - most common in jazz and classical but used by some to record rock and pop. Stevie Wonder plays one. It's easily identified by the sharping lever extending out of the side. The Swan you linked to is one. A very cheap chromatic (such as the Hohner Educator 10 - a beginner model) is about $50. A good one would be the Hohner Chromonica 270 -- roughly $150. You won't get a very good one under $50 [That Swan you link to is a copy of the Hohner Educator 10] It'll work to learn on but it isn't exactly what's called "good" - just ok.

Tremolos and Octaves are used by folk players and ethnic music players. There are easily identified by the two rows of holes. Among these are the Hohner Comet, Hohner Echo, Suzuki SU21H, and lots of very inexpensive toy-types. You can have a decent one for just under $20 (Hohner Echo Celeste) but a good one such as the Hohner 54/64 Echo is around $100 and the climb up from there.

You will always see mixed reviews on harmonicas. Harmonica players get very attached to features and styles they prefer and are very vocal against models that don't have those features. Some love wooden combs, others hate them. Some love tremolos, others hate them. Some like Richter scale, others prefer solo-tuned. Some like equal temperament, others prefer just intonation or a hybrid. It's the nature of our instrument and you'll just have to develop your own tastes.
