I bought one in 9mm with night sights for $419 new, and one in .40 with standard sights for $399 new.
I have put several hundred rounds through both of them, and never had an issue with the firearm. The issue I do have is I seem to ride the slide release lever with my thumb. So sometimes the slide does not lock back on empty. That is just something I have to watch when I am shooting it. It is not the guns fault.
I too think it is one of the best bargin priced quality pistols on the market. I carry the .40 every day!
