Summary: I bought these speakers because the cat damaged the speakers I had, the same model. I had a time finding this particular style. This is the best design Altec Lansing has made. I tried another model... small and tinny sounding... and their other new designs are ugly and inconvenient.
Summary: I purchased a pair of these a few years ago and they've been outstanding. The sound isn't incredibly powerful, but for the size and wattage they do fine. I used these primarily to play music while selling records at various record shows. I used them quite extensively.

Summary: I am always buying speakers for my computer. This is my third purchase and hopefully it will be the last purchase. These speakers are awesome! Excellant sound, strong, clear, pitch perfect! The speakers are attractive and you can adjust the sound for music or talking. Stero and mono.
Summary: Bought them about a month ago. They're really decent speakers, especially considering the price. I'd recommend them to anyone and I'd buy them again if ever I needed new speakers. Definitely a good buy.
Summary: Some people have dissed these speakers, "They sound like 30$ speakers". Yes they do but these were for work where I can't be too loud anyway. I am very happy with them and would suggest to a friend. I bet they would sound GREAT with a subwoofer!
Summary: I wanted a pair of decent but inexpensive portable speakers. These fit the bill for me. I use them primarily on a porch in the summer, when we're having a fire in our outdoor firepit. We just want "background" music from the MP3 player -- I'm not trying to win a stereo war with the neighbors.
Summary: I thought that I would get more sound out of these speakers based on the shipping weight. They sound "ok". Im a little dissapointed with Altec. The last speakers I bought from them were amazing!
