Good directional speakers for work.

Bunny Swan, Amazon

  • Summary: I use these speakers at work because they have good directional sound. I sit next to a co-worker who is 6 feet away from me and she can never hear my music when i have it at a medium listening level.. Downside: Their construction is large and bulky for a desk. The black barrel looks like an oil filter off a Mack truck. At least that's what my coworkers say..

"Terrific sounds"

pasteve, CNET

  • Pros: Just hooked up these puppies yesterday & despite the usual wire clutter around my laptop the FX2020 is easy to set up & after adjusting the sound settings I discovered ample bass along with clear highs for such small, lightweight speakers.
  • Cons: wire clutter around sides of laptop

Spectacular sound

Shelley Gammon "Geek", Amazon

  • Summary: I am so impressed with the power and sound from these little speakers. No subwoofer, but you'd swear there was one in the room. I got these as a replacement for my iMac speakers after my Bose Companion III system bit the dust. I had one of those Gone with the Wind moments... you know, "As God is my witness, I will never spend $300 for speakers that die in 2 years ever again!

(3.5 stars) What you see is (mostly) what you get

Snap, Crackle and Pop, Amazon

  • Summary: THE QUICK TAKE: If you like the design, and need a 2.0 desktop speaker system, these are a good option at current (2011) prices. FULL REVIEW: Altec Lansing has been making self-powered speaker systems (the amplifier is built in) for as long as anyone, and they are very good at it. The speakers work well for their intended use, with effective and efficient amplifiers and drivers, and are built with solid quality.

Big sound from a little package...

Wisdom Twin, Amazon
2 March 2009
  • Summary: At first glance these are very aesthetically pleasing to the eye! You can only imagine my surprise and delight when we hooked them up to various things and they performed wonderfully. We hooked them up to my expensive Dell laptop which is supposed to have great sound but doesn't. Finally I was able to hear everything! Then we set them up to our daughter's Barbie MP3 players and the whole family was able to dance around the living room.

A Small Amplified Speaker System with Excellent Sound Quality but also with a Design Flaw

Lawrence H. Bulk "Lawrence H. Bulk", Amazon

  • Summary: In my opinion, for use as normal desktop computer speakers, these Altec Lansing FX2020 Expressionist Classic Speakers for PC and MP3 Players (Black) are not good choices. Yet they are capable of producing very fine and satisfying sound under some specific circumstances. Let me explain. What most other reviewers of these speakers have failed to note is that, as for most speakers, placement is critical, to a greater or lesser extent.
