I think your first sentence answered the question. If the thread is 3 years old, I think you would be better off looking at the Polk or infinity. I think it comes down to the fact that there are better entry level speakers for the money from more well known manufacturers. I've read some of the reviews on them a couple of years ago. I have not personally heard them. If I recall they were extremely cheap for a 5.0 setup, but there were some obvious corners cut manufacturing wise. But they sounded decent for the cost.
I may be wrong. It's been a while since I read it. The past couple years there has been such great bargains like the Polks from newegg, the infinity primus, and others like the Jamo s606 or 426 package that they get more consideration for HT on a budget.
