Ceiling speakers

Would good-quality ceiling speakers (combined with a subwoofer) be suitable for a home theater system, including a ceiling speaker for the center channel? What would be the downside? Thanks...Larry

That surround sound should come from the sides, not above. I had the option and chose on the side.

Saw model homes with ceiling speakers

Last weekend, while visiting my wife's parents, we looked at about ten model homes that all had ceiling speakers for the surround. Each had a floor subwoofer. It was nice to not see speakers, but I didn't care for the separation, especially for the center-channel speaker where the voice didn't seem to come from the TV. The other thing (unrelated to speakers) was that all the model homes had LG plasma TVs. They all exhibited terrible sync problems when on DVD source. Very weird.
