What are some good mics to record an acoustic? What's important in a mic for recording a piano?

I'm looking for something affordable, say $300 a pair.

For example, what about these:

They seem pretty common and I can find them used at a good price.

I'm sure there are many, but I use the NT5s a lot to record my grand piano, also the NT4 which is basically the same thing in a matched XY configuration.

I'm sure you'll get lots of other options.

I just got a pair of m-Audio Pulsar II mics. The matched pair is less than $300 at B&H Photo. I'm very pleased with the mics, so far.

I don't have nay recordings to post yet, but there are some recordings here (look for username 'ab-ster') using them to record a Steinway B. They are outstanding.
