TAD subwoofer -- how does it compare?

Tube Audio Design is offering the self-powered Aural Ecstasy subwoofer for the astounding price of $129 on a closeout, originally $389. How does it compare to subwoofers in the same retail range, ~$400?
Don't know about other subs but for $129, how can you go wrong?
i boughtmine for the same price including shippingand the fit and finish of this sub is awesome i am using it for home theater only.
I care less about how it looks than how it sounds -- in a stereo system with monitor speakers. Is it tonally accurate? Is it sufficiently powered for a medium size room?
