Not that great of a deal. Decent...but not great. There are better deals elsewhere online right now.
Xiro is a cool drone. I'd consider it a good first "high-end" drone (if that makes sense). Lots of features, GPS, follow me, circle me, and waypoints. High-quality craftsmanship, really neat modular design (battery, and camera gimbal just snap onto/off of the quad) and it flies great! Some people have had issues with fly-aways, and some have had the batteries fall out mid-air (yikes!).
I have two of them, in addition to two phantoms, and a number of other drones/quads. I've never had an issue with mine and really like it. In fact, I still fly it regularly, even with my phantom 3 pro and phantom 4 (which are much better flying and filming machines). The Xiro is in the class of a Phantom, just not nearly as refined. Again, I would describe it as an excellent FIRST high-end drone (if something happens to it, you're only out 3 bills).
However, you can find this version (the V version with 1080p camera) for $299 fairly easily online. What's more, if you have a GoPro, you can find the "bundle" that includes the G copter (G means GoPro gimbal instead of the 1080p camera that comes with the V version), nice handheld gimbal for filming when not flying, and really cool hardshell backpack. All for $299 shipped, with taxes. Check out buydig for one example. Ebay, Amazon, and B&H photo as well.
For $299, I would highly recommend this drone (especially compared to others in its price range). The 3DR Solo is close in price, but that is for the base model whereas you can get the Xiro loaded at this price point.

According to Amazon, 3DR quadcopter only is $349.99.

So I guess with this one, you get the gimbal & camera and 2 extra batteries.
