and noticed 277.60 GB != 291.08..GB. So my question is where did the rest of disk space went to?

it depends on counting "kilo" as 1000 or 1024.
This happens even twice for kb -> mb -> gb.

Thus:  277.60 * 1.024 * 1.024 = 291.08

Memory capacity is calculated using 1024 where as disk manufacturer
like using 1000, as this results in bigger numbers
(but does not result in more space :-(
