Is it worth upgrading really cheap skates if they're comfortable?

Thanks for all the feedback!
So far my consensus is to keep an eye out for some nice mid-level skates, but not rush to the store. As far as skating ability, I can do pretty much everything (crossovers, backwards with crossovers, hockey stops on both sides). The idea of being able to transfer more of my energy into the ice with upgraded skates definitely appeals to me. I'm a pretty fast skater compared to my peers, though I accelerate really slow compared to my top speed. I'm confident that not all of that is due to my technique.
I was thinking of shopping in and around the $300 range. Anyone know of a place in western/central MA?
