I've owned the legend individual squat stands before, and they were very well made. I ended up selling them and buying a legend power rack, though, but I thought they were quite nice for freestanding squat stands.

My opinion is you will be happier in the long run to save your money and do what you can with a barbell and plates until you save up for the rack. All the while scour craigslist daily and you very well may find a nice used cage in your price range.
