The 230 is a slightly better speaker overall but as surrounds and rears you'll unlikely even be able to tell the difference. The 210's have keyhole brackets and side firing ports so they are made to be wall mounted. Ever tried wall mounting a bookshelf speaker? Not fun. If you can use speaker stands it's a no brainer 530 or 230. But if you need to wall mount the 210's are excellent.
