Summary: Very clean sound and enough power for a good sized room. Set up was very easy and the controler is well designed. A 90 degree plug for the front headphones "out" on most laptops helps keep the wire out of the way. I had to run around some to find one and it was in a set so had to pay a bit to much. Including one would be nice but not that big a deal. SOUNDS GREAT!
Summary: I have to say that I love this product. I am not an audiophile, but enjoy music nonetheless. To date, I have purchased 3 sets of these for my home. Each set supports a computer in the house - two teenage daughters and my wife. The sound quality is excellent and the speakers can easily fill a room with sound. The subwoofer puts out well. Overall, I love this model and would highly recommend it.
Summary: Just bought these speakers for our bedroom flat screen TV. The sound is perfect for a small room. All the talk about the bass being too booming is way off. I found that the bass/treble was very easy to set any way you like. Did have a small hook-up glitch at first, but worked it out. I had bought a 3.5 to RCA cord at Radio Shack, as suggested by many. No sound. Called Altec Cust. Support and although they were nice and spent time troubleshooting, no sound.

Summary: I had an older model Altec Lansing which I replaced with this new one and I am totally satisfied with the result. A great buy at under $100. I recommend it to anyone who wants top quality sound from their computer.
Summary: I just bought a 24" IMac and wanted some nice speakers. I looked on apple's site and realized I was going to spend at least $150. So I remembered that I had purchased Altec Lansing about 7 years ago and was very pleased. I then researched the different models on amazon. For $83 you can't beat it!! The highs are outstanding and the bass is superb!! My co-workers were impressed and jealous !! Trust me, you'll Love it !!
Summary: I purchased these for use with my new Sony LCD HDTV. I already have a home theater system but I wanted something independent of that for every day use. My TV has poor sound quality through the built-in speakers so I bought these, more or less, to replace them with. I used the TV's headphone jack to make the connection and I can still use the TV's remote for volume control.
Summary: I have owned this speaker system for just over 1 month and the sound and features are fantastic! The setup was fast and easy and while the satellites are small, the sound is crisp, pure and clean - nothing "tinny" about the sound! The bass unit is solid and can rumble the hardwood floors in my second floor office. Given the price, I wasn't expecting exceptionally great sound but this system excels in every detail.
