In my large home theater, the So-Na-Wall sPodak system added an appealing ambience without any real downsides. I think it's a great accessory especially for larger home theaters, where an extra dollop of sonic excitement is always desired but not always delivered.
Paired with the ST-100 subwoofer, the SonaPods don't replace a good conventional stereo system, but they could certainly replace a set of ceiling speakers — especially in apartments and condos where cutting holes in the ceiling probably isn't an option.
The SonaPod reminds me of a pair of angled needlenose pliers. It's not a product that suits every need, but in the right place it can do amazing things.
