1 out of 5 eggsWow. Just... wow.

Pros: None whatsoever

Cons: Design, quality, design and SERIOUSLY WHO DESIGNS SOMETHING LIKE THIS?!?!?!?!

Other Thoughts: Where do I begin? Have you ever gone to college and gotten a degree in a field that required hard work and lots of studying, then after graduation, you apply for a job in your field only to find that they've already given the position to a monkey? A particularly stupid monkey, at that.

Well, if so, you probably applied for a job as an industrial designer with this company.

The way the 'clip' on this device is designed is beyond belief. It can't grip your laptop screen, not even in theory. It puts pressure at the top front of the screen, and in the middle rear. ANY IDIOT WHO'S EVER USED A CLAMP COULD HAVE TOLD THIS COMPANY THAT WON'T WORK.

It does not grip in any way. All this does is prevent the speaker bar from tipping forward.

In theory.

In actual practice, your screen panel must be at least 1/2" thick for the 'clip' to actually put any pressure on it. The last laptop I ever used with a screen that thick had a 486 processor. I am not in any way being hyperbolic about this. THe end result is a speaker bar that doesn't in any way 'attach' to your laptop, but rather one which might balance precariously atop it, so long as you never move YOUR DESIGNED-TO-BE-MOBILE COMPUTER. Or, you know. Use it on your lap. Or sit it at a slight angle. Or adjust the screen. Or jostle it. Or look at it funny.

In short, the design of this is so amazingly bad that I have trouble believing that they actually did it. I spent an hour looking for hidden catches, levers, and trying different things, thinking maybe I was just not getting it. But no, there was no mistake. This is a perfect example of how NOT to design a laptop speaker bar.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We apologize for your dissatisfaction with this speaker system.

Our devices are designed to be usable on a wide variety of laptop computers. That means that they may not be the best option for specific environments. If you are using this device with the laptop you reviewed in April of this year, you may want to consider purchasing a headset like other gamers.

Thank you for purchasing one of our products, and for leaving us your very valuable feedback.

2 out of 5 eggsFor laptop?

Pros: Sounds good. Ample amplification for small area. metal mesh grill over front.

Cons: Would NOT sit on my Dell Inspiron = poor design for weight. Hard to find place to put it since it won't sit on top where it should. Blue LED is very bright and annoying. Requires USB and earphone jack to work - My previous was just USB. Cable to connectors is small and not well made, not strain relief on USB connector; is already intermittent and has to be wiggled to work.

Other Thoughts: Look for some other brand. Vaas is good and will sit on top.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We are sorry to hear about the issues that you have been having with this device.

Please note that the speaker must rest upon the thin bezel at the top of your laptop.

Our tech support team is more than happy to provide any information you may need when

installing a device.

You may also find any additional information on our website.

5 out of 5 eggsworth it

Pros: very surprised what this thing can do. previously 100% volume on the laptop was barely audible and with this item you need to take it down to 25% of the volume and that's plenty loud enough

Cons: there isn't a very nice contraption that allows the item to hook to the laptop, so usually if you have an obtuse angle on the laptop it fits fine on the top of the monitor, anything less and this is falling off. it's best to use as a side piece. overall very good purchase if you are flexible and needing sound improved.

2 out of 5 eggsFaulty speaker cord

Pros: Its good to mount.
Voice quality is good.

Cons: Speaker lead is not giving proper output after connecting to laptop.
It has to be adjusted to get proper volume amplification.

Other Thoughts: Don't like this product, not functioning well.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

3 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: usb powered
decent sound quality

Cons: mounting system is bad
could be louder with usb power
kind of big for output

Other Thoughts: would not buy again but they do the job

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Perhaps there is a problem with the USB head and the USB slot.

Try using an alternate USB slot on your system to determine if the problem persists.

Please remember to check your Sounds Settings to determine if the sounds levels for the
device were lowered.

4 out of 5 eggsbetter than expected

Pros: Sounds better than I expected (not thumping loud, of course, but as others have said, louder than you might think.. Construction is better than you might expect for the price.

Cons: for the price, none

Other Thoughts: I'm using it as portable speakers with a projector and it's perfect for that, much clearer than typical laptop speakers.

2 out of 5 eggsFair

Pros: It has decent sound for its size.

Cons: The mounting design is poor. It has a piece of plastic that flips down and is supposed to be used as a brace against the top of your laptop and the other two front braces (one on each side) is supposed to counter balance it. I tried it on two of my laptop computers and it would not hold on either of them. I ended up using duct tape to keep it mounted.

Other Thoughts: I would purchase this speaker again only as a stand alone that sits on top of a flat surface.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Our engineers will look into this matter. If it is a problem of our production design, we will improve it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Bargain!

Pros: Way better sounding and louder than an Acer net-book's speakers. $10 shipped was a good deal. They easily hook to the top of an Acer net-book with no problem. Also, they look pretty nice as well.

Cons: None really, but the blue power light is kinda bright and there is no separate volume control. Those aren't really cons, just pointing out the obvious. I am in no way complaining for the price that they cost. They are worth every penny.

Other Thoughts: Can you buy better speakers? Probably, but honestly I was pleasantly surprised with the sound of these speakers considering the small price tag. I seriously doubt you will find a better deal without spending more $$$.

4 out of 5 eggsgood

Pros: it sounds good works just fine out of the box i ordered this for a cheap speaker for my DESKTOP computer the price was nice and i like that it is usb powered i prefer to not have all the cables everywhere.

Cons: none to speak of

Other Thoughts: This isnt a con but it does bug me that most speakers have a light on when the computer is off just a thought, and for the price if you need one this one works and sounds great.
