£270 gets you 24 gears and hydraulic disc brakes, frame sizes are very limited though - 15" and 21" only.
SE bikes aren't some duff company, they produce some very good BMX race bikes, so these bikes should be fine for trail riding.

The gears look a bit bottom of the range, but ok for the reduced price i guess?

Can't speak for the quality of the bike itself, but I have similar Tourney, Acera, and Suntour parts on a 2010 Specialized Hardrock Sport. Shifts well enough, obviously not as well as my 105 equipped road bike but, as you say, at this price it seems reasonable. Will be infinitely better than the <£200 stuff you see in supermarkets. Worst part of this bike will likely be the forks.
I think the tourney front derailleur is pretty much regarded as fit for purpose and the rear is Acera so it seems a well judged bike. It wasn't good value at the original price but definitely great value at this price. I'm not so obsessed with brand myself, it will likely be another taiwanese/chinese bike as per most top brands anyway. Front forks look the weakest quality component to me too but reviews indicate ok performance, neither great nor poor. Definitely seems worth this money overall with no major component failings.
