Everyone has favorites and I'm sure you'll get different opinions. For what it's worth, I don't like santoku knives so the Furi knife set would be out for me. However, based on reviews, they seem to be decent (but not exceptional) quality and not bad for the price.
Personally, I prefer traditional German or French style knives, particularly when it comes to my workhorse 8" chef's knife. I also prefer the weight and balance of forged knives but they are considerably more expensive than stamped knives.
My favorites are the Wusthof Classic and Grand Prix lines and the Henckels 4 Star, 5 Star and Professional S lines. For the most part, the different lines of each manufacturer are the same except for handle design. Since good knives will give you a lifetime of service, to me it's worth paying a little more to get the best knives you can afford.
Having said that, most of the top of the line Wusthofs and Henckels may be over your budget, but not necessarily. A couple of years ago, Wusthof decided to redesign the handles on one of its top lines, the Grand Prix, and renamed them Grand Prix II. Most retailers put the original Grand Prix knives on clearance and sold them out quickly. However, there is one major internet seller, Cutlery and More, who still has a good stock and is selling them at a huge discount (60-70% off retail). Here's the link: Wusthof Grand Prix - Full Wusthof Grand Prix Knife Selection, Wusthof Grand Prix Knives, Grand Prix Cutlery on Sale
If it was me, I'd buy the best set of these I could afford. For example you can get a 3 piece chef's knife set for $99.95, with free shipping, which includes 8" chef's and carving knives and a 3.5" paring knife. They also have a 6 piece block set at the same price, but it has a 6" chef's knife rather than an 8" and I don't recommend it.
Your other alternatives, to stay in budget, would be:
1. Lesser quality (but good) forged knives such as these Calaphalons: Amazon.com: Calphalon Everyday Cutlery 14pc Set: Kitchen & Dining
2. High quality stamped knives such as these Forschner/Victorinox knives: Amazon.com: R.H. Forschner by Victorinox 8-Piece Knife Block Set: Kitchen & Dining
Which ever knives you choose, keep them sharp. If you don't have good sharpening skills and equipment, for the price you can't do better than this: Amazon.com: Lansky 4-rod Turn Box Crock Stick Sharpener (LCD5D): Sports & Outdoors
