- for about a hundred bucks. Do these cameras tend to last a while and would this be a good starter DSLR?

Direct answer to your questions: yes, these cameras tend to last a while and, yes, it would be a good starter DSLR. That does not exclude that there are better starter DSLR's, e.g later models like the K100DS have shake reduction, can be bought including a lens for a similar same prize, and do not challenge a friendship. Canon recently launched 'worlds smallest DSLR' and made quite some noise about that; the *ist is about as small.
