2 out of 5 eggsUnderwhelmed

Pros: Cheap, plus they come from a name brand company so they must be good right?

Cons: Wrong. Speakers entirely underwhelmed me. Even for the price, I was expecting much more. The bass is muddy and drowns out the weak satellites. Also, the subwoofer emits a constant low but audible humming sound when it's just powered on. Pretty annoying.

Other Thoughts: Disappointed with product and am returning it.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect Office Speakers

Pros: Size of the speakers and sub-woofers make it the perfect speakers for desk at the office. The sound is just right so that you don't go blowing away your cube neighbor (or maybe not)

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: It would've been nice to have a seperate sub-woofer volume control, but what can you expect for the price. If I wanted something like that, I'd look to pay much more and since it's just for the office... not gonna do it.

2 out of 5 eggsBuy a better set of speakers

Pros: low cost. decent sound at low volumes

Cons: No control over bass. the bass levels increase faster than the treble when you turn up the volume which leaves extremely distorted bass. to avoid the bass distortion the speakers must be turned down low enough that the sattelite speakers can't be heard.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend spending an extra $5 for a different set of speakers that at least allow tone control, otherwise drop an additional $20-$30 to get a decent set with full control and better bass output, such as the Creative I-Trigue 3300 for $66. They have amazing sound that rivals my Yamaha Home Theater system.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Value

Pros: Amazing sound for the money.

Cons: Nope.

Other Thoughts: If your an audiophile, they're probably not for you. But for the average user upgrading from a basic 2 channel setup...these are perfect. Decent bass, nice highs...it's all about the price.
