If you want a rough feeling guitar, I guess it works for you. But a lot of the higher end Squiers are more than often better than the lower end Fenders. I have a Squier that I happily spent more money on (and rejected a Mexican Fender Tele for..) because it feels and sounds amazing.
My opinion? Don't go for any of these guitars. The Fenders are unrepairable, unless you want your guitar to look like it's been glued back together. The Squiers are early 2000s Squiers, quality control wasn't quite the same back then. Also, imagine spending all that money to discover you dislike them? That puts you in the seat of the guy that just desperately sold it to you.
PS, picture proof Squiers don't have to suck:

That tele looks really nice mate! How much did that set you back?

First guitar I bought was back in 2001, a $115 Squier Bullet Many hours were passed in my room playing Green Day, Blink, and Weezer on that bad boy. Had a crappy Fender practice amp that had a hole in it and no distortion pedal. Wasn't the best set up but it was fun. Ironic because my dad was a luthier at the time, making $3,000 guitars (Beardguitars.com), and I was playing an instrument from the polar opposite end of the quality spectrum.
