Chossing sub $1000 video editing software

Looking for any advice about choosing a NLE for PC with budget < $1000. I have glanced through the threads but a little lost. If anyone could provide some advice or steer me towards some threads which might be useful I would appreciate it. Incidnetally, I am using ULEAD media studio 7.0 trial, which to my novice taste seems to be fine. Are there any downsides to this software?
Thanks
-Phil

Get Sonic Foundry's Vegas Video 4, you can get it for less than $500, to most people it's the shiznit (best). It's my favorite. It's the easiest, and all of that. Download the trial and check it out, it takes a while to get used to some of the commands, but once you do get used to it, it's awesome...

Thanks Alex,
The one thing I neglected to mention is that I do record in 4 track with my XL1s. Does this change recommendation at all? I am using Scenalyzer (just got it) and it seems to work well. Though it does seem that I need to rename the second set of audio tracks (st 2) before importing then into editing software. Are any of the other NLE's significantly better at dealing with 4 track? In any event, I am going to give Vegas a try.

I use Vegas AND 4 channel audio. Vegas will not capture 4 channel audio - Scenalyzer will.

What I do:
Capture all clips with 4 channel audio clips with Scenalyzer
Capture all other clips with Vegas capture

My next Vegas newsletter deals with capturing.
