Are the cheap Antec PSUs reliable? The application is an OEM eMachine desktop PC. Very basic. Nothing fancy. Any other cheap PSUs you would recommend? Anything has to be better than the junk that this thing came with.... right?

It depends on what the "junk" that came with it is. A lot of OEM machines come with very solid power supplies in them.

It says "Hipro 300w max" on it.

It's probably about average for a pre-built PC PSU; nothing I'd run an enthusiast system on and not guaranteed to last more than 3-5 years max, but adequate for the system in question.
