Summary: I bought the speakers because my daughter's laptop had what has to be the WORST sound card ever invented. She wanted to watch movies and could but you couldn't hear a thing. These filled the bill. Wonderful sound quality and no need for a seperate power source since you get the power via 2 usb ports. I liked them so much I bought another pair for my tv.
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.
Summary: I used to have a 3-piece speaker system (w/ subwoofer); it sounded great but only worked for a few weeks and then it died. So I looked for something simpler but yet reliable and decent sounding... and I think I found it. Great volume and it won't get distorted, not as bassy as a sub-woofer but good, smooth bottom end. Works better with a good media player, small yet powerfull. I'm a pleased customer.
Summary: WOW, these are amazing on my HP laptop. I can't get over how well they sound and how great the deep bass sound is. Well worth every cent. How anyone could give these less than 5 stars is beyond me!
