Is Ibanez RGA42FM a good guitar?

Hey all! I have been playing acoustic guitar for a year and a half, now i am planning to buy an electric guitar. I live in Boston. I play Rock music and sometimes metal. I have a budget of US$250(can be extended to 300) and i want to buy a 'new' guitar. I am thinking of buying Ibanez RGA42FM. But i have heard that it has a lot tuning problems. I am really confused! Is it a good guitar? If it's not then please suggest some.

I can't imagine why it'd have tuning problems, it's a fixed bridge guitar. The machine heads on the tuners may be a bit cheap but they can easily be upgraded to Gotohs or similar for a small cost which would mostly eliminate any tuning issues, and the pickups can be upgraded further down the track too as you get better. 24 frets, Wizard III neck and a nice finish - I'd say go for it!
