Works exactly as expected - great addition to the Dell display.

Summary: This does exactly what it is meant to do - provides sound out directly under the Dell displays. I've had two of these, the oldest one now about 7 years still works fine and the new one on my newer 23" UltraSharp display. Only quibble is the blue light in the midde of it seems un-necessary - in both cases I've put a strip of black electrical tape over it.
Great speakers for the price. Couldn't expect much more.

Summary: Great sound for the price. Very simple to install and use. No negatives other than I don't know if they come in black but that would have been a better color than silver on a black monitor. Very pleased with purchase.
Must buy for Dell flat screen monitor owners, A+ product!

Summary: The Dell AS501 is a must have for anyone using a Dell flat screen monitor! For me personally, I have been using various variations of the stock-style of speakers that came with my pc, however, each and everyone of them always had a static sound to them. Not this sound bar! It eliminates that problem, frees up space that would otherwise be taken up by regular speakers and sounds incredible! This was certainly a wise investment for me and I highly recommend this item!
Highly recommended, excellent quality, fun to use, great value for money!

Summary: Dell really did it this time, the very idea of a mountable speaker for a professional monitor just goes to show you how much Dell thinks of the user's overall product experience. The sound quality is very good, loud enough thanks to the built-in amplifier. The soundbar helps reduce clutter on the table, as opposed to using regular external speakers. When turned on, there is a blue light in the middle of the soundbar, rather annoying, I wish Dell would have got rid of it.
I could not believe the sound quality for such a small soundbar. :-)

Summary: For the price, and size, I never thought this would sound so good. I bought this for my wife's computer, but she had already bought a small pair of speakers. So I liked it so much, I use it for mine. Then took my system I had connected which has the amplifier with base, and used it for my small TV.
Summary: The speakers fit nicely to my UltraSharp screens. Elegent space-saver. The sound quality exceeds my expectation. Although not comparable to serious stereo system, good enough for regular computer end users.
Summary: These are nice little speakers for the money. They fit my dell 2005fpw monitor nicely and weren't hard to hook up. The sound is better than I was expecting considering they're only 5watts each. My only gripe is the big blue led in the middle when the thing is turned on. I do all my photographic editing on this monitor and the light is definitely distracting when I'm trying to concentrate on color corrections.
Summary: these are great speakers if you have no extra desk space and are looking for a easy fit for the dell monitors. i have 5 of these on my dell monitors and they work great and add a little extra sound to a great system.
Summary: Complements the Dell line up of UltraSharp monitors as a seamless add-on. Does not come with a power adapter (UltraSharp models have a small power jack on monitor). The look is very good and the front grill is real metal not plastic. The sound is above average, but not audiophile. In other words, this sound bar can crush your clock radio. What more can one ask for?
