Just got it today at Bestbuy for $299, not at $269 like you did though -- that's a steal. After a day of use, my only complaints are cosmetic / superficial. The stand seems at first to be highly unstable (especially when configuring it for the first time.) It's weird gaming with a Widescreen aspect ratio (16:10) after being on 4:3 forever. My previous monitor was a Samsung 940BF and I'll be using that monitor as my LAN / Secondary Monitor when I clear up some real-estate on the desk. I do not regret getting this monitor.
