I'm guessing the heads in here line-up at the local house-o-hoops or shop at the mall cause the 270 ain't hurting me that bad bro. For average heat your gonna pay 200-300+ aftermarket. I've said before ill say it again the extra 100 ain't a big deal, I can make that back before breakfast. Cash is easy to re-up, but time you can never get back. Truth, I hope everyone thinks these cost to much and let em sit on shelves like the elitle 9's so I can cop easy. LOL.
