There's a lot of good information on which brands/models at which price point.

A couple of points to start out with is that the f-style (with the scroll) has no difference acoustically than the A-style. You will pay for the 'look' which is fine if that's what you want.

A second thing is that setup is very important! The bridge is movable. (Many mandolin players do not remove all the strings at once during a string change for this reason.) When you decide on what you want to purchase, be sure that the place you're purchasing from has someone qualified to do the setup.

Aside from that, a little research and asking around will get you a wealth of information.
