Summary: I bought the system directly from the seller (TigerDirect, Inc.), they had the system for $149.99 with a $50 rebate. I couldn't pass on that deal at least based on the fact that these speakers were selling for much more than that outside.
Summary: I bought these despite some less then perfect reviews. I got everything quickly from the seller and promptly set everything up with my Samsung Receiver. Very easy to install, even includes speaker wire.
Summary: Why 3 stars, well I have not tested it yet(waiting for receiver, Sony STRDH520 7.1), but so far they were what I was waiting for, really good looking speakers with a black glossy finish and a modern design. Will update later when tested.
Summary: Love the system; it has a pretty clear sound. I love the stylish and discreet look of the speakers. My only nitpick at the moment is that the bass just does not feel deep enough. I had a $40 generic surround system given to me as a gift from Dollar General, and you would be surprised how good that...
Pros: Great system, sleek look, discreet satellite speakers.
Cons: Bass not deep enough, longer cords on front speakers
Didn't hear them, couldn't get past the size of the sub.

Summary: ** First, I have to say I never listened this system. Why write a review of speakers I haven't heard? This is a "cut to the chase" for anyone interested in a small speaker package for a tight space. The sub is huge. It's gigantic. It's hugegantic and ginormous.
