Summary: First of all, I will clarify that I did not buy these through Amazon. I bought these back around 2004 for a new system build. I am listening to some Mumford and Sons on them as we speak on a 2009 system build. As far as 2.1 systems go - this set is tough to beat.
Summary: Best speakers and quality Altec Lansing ever made to bad they don't make these anymore. The only big problem we have is the wire that is connected to the speaker becomes lose in the back of the speaker and there no way to fix that issue.
Decent speakers that could be designed a little better...

Summary: i bought these speakers so my dad would have some better speakers to listen to his music when he is surfing the internet... it works out well for him because he does not need the speakers to be on every time the computer on...
Summary: this speaker system is excellent for the price. The subwoofer pumps out great bass, and the speakers give off crisp sound. If you listen closly you can tell that they struggle slightly at mid range but overall very good sound. The only con.
Summary: I bought these amazing speakers, about 3 months ago. I paid only $40.00, at Newegg.com, I must have gotten the last pair, WHAT A DEAL! The power these little speakers pump out, is absolutely amazing! You will not believe it! They're really cool looking, and a breeze to hook up.
Summary: If I told you what Amazon charged me for these (with FREE shipping) right before the holidays--they'd probably censor this review...so I'll just say "WHAT A DEAL"!!! I purchased them just for the awesome price, so I wasn't prepared to "quibble".
Summary: I gave these speakers as gift to my parents, to connect to their laptop. They popped in the Pirates of the Caribbean in their laptop and were blown away by the impressive theater like sound, especially from the subwoofer.
Summary: Hello, I purchased these speakers at amazon.com for a knockdown holiday sale price of $29.99 (Oct. 2004), they came in today and I tried them with some basic techno, metal and rock music. The sound quality is good.
