Excerpt: I received these speakers when I orginally purchased my computer . I paid about $50 for them. The reason why I picked these speakers is because I trust going with a brand like Altec Lansing and that these speakers can handle music and multimedia just fine. After all, that is what these speakers are meant for. To tell the truth, I wasn’t expecting much from these 2. 0 satellite speakers . However, once I tested them I was very satisfied.
Summary: Dear Vendor: I am extremly pleased with our purchase. I find the quality of the sound to be outstanding as well as a young man that knows hings of that nature. The item is of great value for the price and its quality is outstnding as well as sound quality. thank you for the great price!!
Summary: These little speakers are ideal if you have a space problem in your computer area. They are not suitable for the confirmed audiophile, but if all you want is to be able to hear your computer alert sounds, and play an occasional snippet of music when reviewing a CD these are perfect. They contain magnetic shielding and are amazingly compact. Since my computer is used as a computer and not a stereo system, these speakers are perfect for my needs.
Summary: The biggest pro of these speakers is the price. If you're on a tight budget, like I was when I bought them, you probably won't find a better deal. I found them at Walmart for about $15. The biggest downside is the volume control. If you turn them very low, you get a very poor quality sound. Turn them up to about midlevel and it sounds less artificial.
Summary: For the $10-15 price range, these are fine...I bought a pair for $12 somewhere and am going to order about 20 more to add sound to some office computers. Very low profile, very light, kind of a classic look...not "incredible" sound, but I've heard worse in some $50 speakers. Blue power light brighter than any LED I've ever seen...that might irritate you a little.
Summary: I just got these at a local store and they just really blow!!! I was swayed by the brand name and the great price (although higher than Amazon). It's true when they say you get what you pay for... rock-bottom price = rock-bottom performance. Terrible to say the least. Mine are going back right now.
