One obvious to me e-commerce engine that you've missed out is NetDirector e-Trade Pro. This e-commerce software package is great - it fits into the Lower Cost pricing.
It has no contract and uses software-as-a-service model. At £99 per month it's as cheap as chips...
I think it is definitely better than the other ones you have listed in that range and probably others :)

I would suggest that you may wish to look at a solution based around Actinic.
It is a robustly developed software application with commercial support available and also good quality documentation. It's development path is controlled and managed as well as having a large number of developers / resellers that can help you implement it.
Our experience of using open source e-commerce apps has been somewhat disappointing. We have found that if it is a very rudimentary requirement and supportability is not an issue then open source *may* be an option. However, a project that requires more extensive bespoke integration, we feel would be better addressed with a more supportable and professionally documented platform.
Being reliant on forum communities and scouring the web for informal tech support seems generally inappropriate to us for a line of business application. However, would accept that for some projects this may represent an acceptable risk.
If you wish to contact me by email I would be pleased to share with you some of the limitations and issues that we found with osCommerce.

If you are looking for an entry level website that you can customise yourself, packed with great features and functionality you should try www.bluepark.co.uk.
I have used them for 2 e-commerce sites in the past with very little trouble.
I don't usually like to promote the competition, I have been building bespoke e-commerce systems for over 10 years, but for an off the shelf system I haven't found anything better.
