I paid $300 for mine which I got 4 days ago. While Im happy, I think it's a little overpriced. I love the way the LG G Pad is so beautifully designed. The 8.3-inch screen has awesome display but I wished LG made it to have a better performance. I did also have to get a screen protector but i think it's worth it as I got it from GEARMAXX and only paid $19 for it. Here it's some pics I took:

It's hard these days when Android tablet pricing is a race to the bottom, especially for LG who likely won't sell in huge volume. But it is definitely an attractive and well made device. I was hoping for the Snapdragon 800 for the price too, but honestly the Snapdragon 600 is pretty snappy.
