I got a four-leg stand (I suppose it's really a three-leg stand, like most are, with a wide spread front axle) from Harbor Freight for something around $50 and it works fine. Yes, you can spend a lot more for stands but if you're not doing this kind of work for a living, there are a lot of features, like gear-driven rotation, you can do without. As long as the stand has some reserve capacity for the most weight you're going to put on it, it will work. I don't recommend a three-leg stand with the single or narrow front wheel, even though they are stable in a static situation (three points of contact make a plane), but you have to be careful if you need to move it around. Yes, I have used those and never had a problem.
