I swear these are $699 every few months. Makes me think the MSRP is just for FOMO.
And for those that can't replicate a theater in their home, these 280fa provide a quality entry into that experience. For the price and quality, it's hard to beat this(frequently posted) SD. Just trying to provide some useful detail for those looking for some insight.
Bought these and the 440c center last time they were on sale. Extremely happy with them coming from my Andrew Jones pioneers (which are great for the price)

Before buying the Klipsch set, I did some research and found a lot of people saying they were bright and fatiguing on the ears. This was absolutely true until I re-ran audyssey. That toned down the highs a lot.

I got these from the last FP deal. Currently the best Klipsch bang for the buck speakers available IMO. Upgraded from Klipsch Icon KF-28s to these. These are pretty much identical to the latest RP-8000FAs, but with slightly better build quality due to the full metal base vs the legs of the 8000 series.

I'd grab the 8000F for $399 and get some proper front and rear heights instead of the Atmos topper.

I thought 280 and 8000 are essentially the same.

I had these and then combined with actual ceiling Atmos. I liked the effect these had and also the combo with direct heights. Plenty of people will espouse to know what's best(only ceiling) but there's theory behind both types of application. Do what sounds good to you/what your space allows for.

Quote from KillJoyEX :
It is very hit or miss and often can be distracting as you can localize it coming from the top of the speaker instead of the ceiling. You can put one nail in the wall and hang a speaker on it even if you are renting it's not like cutting out huge holes. At least you will be mounting it up high where you want the sound to come from
Ya, there are several factors to consider. Much to the point for those considering this and other options... Do your homework.

I purchased these when they were on sale last time. Unfortunately, one of the speakers had a bad rattle in the woofer. At first, I contacted Klipsch, but after seeing their super slow turn around time, I contacted Adorama. They took the old damaged speaker back right away and shipped me a new one. Great service from Adorama.

These speakers rock! Although I have a subwoofer, I measured these separately in my large open room (28ftx21ftx9ft) flat down to 30hz. I was surprised these extend flat all the way down to 30hz. If you decide to purchase a subwoofer, you'll benefit with a true subwoofer that can extend down to at least 20hz. Atmos that uses ceiling bounce is meh compared to actual ceiling speakers.

These speakers are huge and heavy. Prob around 75lbs each and are about 20 inches deep. For this price, they are a steal, buy immediately.
