We try to review a few different types of items every now and then, but it seems that May was a month of firsts. Not only did we review our first 5.1-channel home theater speaker system, but we also reviewed our first pair of computer speakers.

Coolest of the month: Monoprice 8427 5.1-channel home theater speaker system

It’s usually tough picking the coolest thing we reviewed in any given month, but to be honest, this month it was pretty easy. A full 5.1 speaker system for under $100 bucks? That’s impressive.

Best bang for the buck: Creative Sound Blaster Jam

It was tempting to give this to the Monoprice 8247, but the Creative Sound Blaster Jam is a pair of Bluetooth headphones that costs roughly $50 and actually sounds good. Bargains like that are what this category was made for.
