For anyone looking for a low cost monitor that is NOT low in performance, this would be a good choice. The unit is very solidly built yet lightweight, aesthetically pleasing and it's coaxial driver not only sounds quite good, but also rejects feedback far better than a conventional HF driver. I've used it two times within the first week of purchase and it performs admirably so long as you keep in mind it's place is NOT a stage filled with electric guitars and a hard hitting drummer. It's perfect for bands that feature vocalists, brass and acoustical instruments. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the cables come into the back of the unit - which is then visible to the audience. All my other monitors (costing far more) have cable in/outs on the sides making for a nice clean view from the audience's perspective. All in all, buy this with the proper expectations and you will be happy.
