Summary: Very rugged and very reliable speakers. I've had mine for going on 12 years and showing no signs of wearing down after all those years. My PC speakers out lasted several PC's, hard drives, etc. Now that's a well built product.
Summary: I bought these speakers when I moved into the dorms freshman year of college because they were cheap. It's now been 11 years and these things are still kicking just like the day I bought them. Little did I know that I would be buying some of the best value speakers ever.
Summary: I recieved these speakers for free from my grandmother and fell in love with them.... They are absolutely amazing.. Recently I discovered they work better as a combo amp for my bass than my Fender Frontman 15r.
Summary: These are great speaker's for under 50. They grab the high's and mid's pretty well. Sound quality is great. They're big, like one of the reviews about 3/4 the size of a carton of OJ. Dont hesitate to grab these. They may be old but are wonderful speaker's.
Summary: not that i'm an audiophile or anything even remotely close to one... but i know a decent speaker sound when i hear it and these speakers sound pretty bland. no bass, no highs... as many have already stated, just alotta mid-muffled sounds. i really would not purchase this item again.
Summary: I didn't actually buy these speakers, I found them whilst dumpster diving, and they're probably better than any set of computer speakers I've ever bought! The bass is a tad weak, but the construction is extemely solid, although they are a bit on the heavy side.
Summary: I wanted a pair of speakers for my desk at work. I didn't want something that had heavier bass (though I love bass, I keep that for my home listening). I just wanted relatively inexpensive speakers that had a crisp sound and decent bass. I also wanted them to look good. These speakers fit the bill!
Summary: I recently baught an Altec Lansing 2.1 system for my Girlfriend for $50.00 and was blown away at the quality - really outstanding. I needed a 2.0 system for my office as I have no good place for a subwoofer and decided to stick with what has been an impressive brand.
Excellent 2.0 Speakers -- but you probably want 2.1!

Summary: I purchased a pair of Altec Lansing's 220 speakers for my son's computer (he is 7 years old and does not need extreme bass for games -- yet!). Desk space was restricted, and these work very well.
Extremely disappointing sound quality for Altec Lansing

Summary: The quick summary: --inexpensive --terrible sound quality --odd/inconvenient shape I recently wanted some computer speakers on the cheaper end that would provide decent quality audio. Not a ridiculous request.
