Summary: I've been in music forever, both as a musician and home recording. I was amazed at the volume of sound that came from these. And the sound is pretty good. There's bass, but the mids and highs are kind of muffled. But it's way better than using the speakers on my Mac. Good for watching tv shows or for doing presentations in a small to mid-sized room.
Summary: I bought a desktop and needed some speakers. I didn't need quality, just wanted basic sound so I bought these. They are small, USB powered (so no outlet needed) and have a big sound range. For the price, they have surprisingly good sound. Remember: these are not for an audiophile or for someone looking for good quality sound.
Summary: I was so sick of the low sound quality from my 13inch MacBook Pro. Lets face it, it's not built for amazing movie/video watching experiences. These speakers were perfect! Granted they are a little large; I found the perfect spot for them so they don't take up valuable real estate on my desk. It was easy to setup and install and there was no reason to configure anything in the sound settings. I was able to "plug and go".
Summary: These speakers are great! Very small footprint and rich sound that fills the room. So glad I didn't need to use another outlet since it plugged into a USB port. I plug it in to a HD cable box and use a 24" monitor for display.
Summary: I bought these for my laptop. The work great. I wish they were a little smaller for ease of travel, but the sound is very good. The laptop sound wasn't enough for videos, movies etc. This does the trick and is USB.
