Model/Year: Gravity27.5 G2

Pros: Good choice for entry level. I've ridden trails twice so far the bike brakes well, shifts very smooth. I'm very pleased with it!

Model/Year: 2015 27 Five G2

Pros: Nicely built for a sub $600 bike. The hydraulic disc brakes vs. mechanical disc brakes is a nice touch at this price point.

Cons: Fork sucks. Little purple lockout gizmo, gone on first ride.
I think these were used on the first Model T Ford.

Recommendation: Buy the bike and a new front fork at the same time.
Yes

Model/Year: 2015

Pros: Cheap compared to market.
Comfortable Seat.
Slightly upgraded components when compared to other bikes in bracket.
Metal Pedals

Cons: The front fork leaves quite a lot to be desired. I had the lockout knob break off on my first wipe-out. The shock is also not all that responsive.

Recommendation: Overall, the bike has been good for the money. The only real issue I have run into has been with the front suspension. It's not terrible, but it's also not the greatest thing in the world. Given the price point, however, it's hard to beat. Most bikes in the same price range will be running the same Suntour XCT, so it's all relative.
