I have installed many Fridgidaires in kitchens I have installed and have not heard anything bad about then from past customers. In my own kitchen I have the same brand and it is about 14 years old. One advantage besides the realistic prices is how quiet they are.

I have also installed Bosch and Wolf units but unless you have a higher budget I do not see the point. As a mater of fact one I installed (Bosch) needed a factory repairman because it would not operate after install. As I do not get involved in the appliance sale but sometimes have customers ask for advice I asked the the repairman about how many problems this brand has and he said one of the biggest problems was they use a plastic impeller on the pump that will break if care is not taken to wipe of the dishes before putting them in and a bone gets in the pump. He also said the Frididaire was a good unit.

We got a good deal last Christmas on a Bosch Ascenta. It cleans very well and is pretty quiet. I think we paid $500-550 for it from Sears. They still make these.

Sears had the best pricing including online.

When our roughly 30 year old Roper dishwasher died, I made a big mistake and got a Whirlpool Quiet Partner one - because we got a great deal on it. Piece of junk in my opinion - uses a highly intermittent cycle - will psray for a few seconds, then let soak for many minutes - takes about an hour to do a cycle, does not clean dishes, just rinses them, and leaves soap inside cups and such because the sprayers do not hit all surfaces.

I have heard from several aquantainces and neighbors that Bosch commonly come in with factory defects or fail shortly after first use due to electrical/electronic issues, and that Whirlpool dishwashers (as opposed to their laundry products) do not clean well and have short life.

When we redo our kitchen probably next year the replacement will be a Roper.
