Summary: The speakers have no cords to connect them to the tv. The box did not include any instructions. I had absolutely no idea how to use them, there was no way to connect them to the television, no directions, no nothing. I returned them to Walmart. They were useless to me.
Summary: These were purchased as a bargain replacement for a pair of rather ancient JVC bookshelf speakers I was using for surround in our bedroom. They are at least as good of quality as one would expect for the price.
Summary: I wasn't expecting this type of speaker at this price, they are great. My playing of some very authentic sounding action movies was phenomenal from these speakers. I was upgrading and thought these a temporary solution. Not now, they are permanent for my home theater system.
Summary: I took a chance with these speakers, seeing some good and some bad reviews. Not sure how they stack up against other speakers out there - heck, you'd expect more from JBL and Bose, but look at the price of those! I'm using one each, for a pair of shortwave and HAM radios.
