They are all basically the same (they all have to meet Australian standards) it's nice to have one that converts- a 3 in 1. I do think you get what you pay for $ wise so it's not bad to invest in an $$ one just be sure your going to use it as I found it was a big waste of $ for us!

defective cots where the side rails that hold the drop side on comes away at the bottom on both sides so the drop side can actually swing out on an angle & the child fall down the side & suffocate. They were also using plastic rather than metal in the ones banned in the US. Of course a regular check to make sure all is still in tact correctly is a good idea.
You can see the hardware in that pic is plastic.
Drop side cots are safe and legal in Australia. They wouldnt sell them if they were dangerous.

My older kids had an expensive cot, then when we had number 3 I went with the cheap one at target that converts to a toddler bed and its just as good.
Just get what you like the look of. I think they are all the same.
