Average Bargain Speakers that Look Pretty Nice.

arcanetrader, Ebay
16 August 2009
  • Summary: Hard to speak poorly of thees speakers because I paid less than $10 IN MY HAND for a NEW IN BOX set! They look very nice and have a good silver and black finish. They have only one bargain speaker built into each unit despite the deceptive cabinet shape and larger size so don't expect much more sound then you would a little cube type speaker. They are not very loud but have more bass than I would expect when I look at them.

worked fine for a couple years then fizzled out

Sarah Squarepants "buzhwa", Amazon
16 July 2008
  • Summary: These speakers worked very well for the first two years I had them. For their price, and for not having a subwoofer, they produce a really nice sound from computer audio. I even plugged them into my MP3 player and portable CD player occasionally. However, recently, the right speaker pops and crackles, and the only way to get it to clearly play audio is to tweak the volume *ever* so slightly.

Just Good Speakers

Teahouse Fox "...and this is my favorite stor..., Amazon
1 December 2005
  • Summary: These days of 2.1, 5.1, 7.1 and who-knows-what-else-point-one surround speakers it's a little tedious just getting a set of regular stereo speakers that simply offer good quality left and right audio. This is what I wanted, and having had them a year I can say I would still buy them. They are an inconspicuous addition to the bookshelf above my PC and offer very good sound for the price.

Adequate, but JBL Duet are much better

M. Woinoski, Amazon
4 October 2005
  • Summary: The VS2120 is a respectable 5-watt speaker: the sound is clear and balanced, and the speakers can produce medium volume in a small room. However, for a few dollars more, the 12-watt JBL Duet speakers produce a much bigger, fuller sound.

Great!

Just Me, Amazon
1 May 2005
  • Summary: I read the customer reviews, I bought the speakers and I'm very satisfied. (I love these reviews from actual users of products, so much more helpful than reviews by people paid to hype a product). I'd say more, but others have said it already and said it well.

Very Good Value

Clyde "bladerunner", Amazon
30 March 2005
  • Summary: I bought these speakers for my LINUX box. All I wanted was some good cheap speakers. These are very good speakers for the price. The best thing I like about these speakers is that they don't have the BIG transformer as others do, they just have the normal 110V plug. The sound is good for the price range of these speakers, they will never beat my surrond sound speakers, but I didn't buy them for that.

Just what I wanted!!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
8 March 2005
  • Summary: These are great speakers! I was looking for a set of cheaper costing but higher quality speakers, and these are it! I live in a town home, and can't have speakers with a lot of bass. So I wanted to find a set that would give great sound, have acceptable bass, but not carry much farther than my computer room. You can't hear the bass very well as you get father from them, but if you're just at your computer they are great! And this coming from an avid Techno fan!

Great speakers for bedroom

Jeff T, Amazon
1 March 2005
  • Summary: I was looking for a pair of speakers to hook up to my iPod for the bedroom; I didn't want anything that took up extra space (ie. subwoofer) or had an extra power brick (these don't, power is built into one of the speakers). While these might not be as adequate for loud listening environments, they do more than enough to fill a 12' x 15' bedroom with acceptably clear highs and not too muddy lows (I'm using them hooked up through the line output of the iPod dock).

Great value, go great with my Mac Mini!

skunktrain, Amazon
11 February 2005
  • Summary: I am the queen of cheap speakers. I always tend to get the cheesiest, sleaziest speakers. I decided that my new Mac Mini deserved something a *little* better, but I'm still cheap. These speakers are not, I'm sure, high-end, but they are a far cry from the cheapie speakers I usually have. The sound quality is wonderful -- I'm hearing subtle low tones that the cheap speakers didn't pick up, and everthing's smooth and clear. They're easy to set up and very attractive.

Nice sound and look good

MJ23447, Amazon
3 February 2005
  • Summary: I bought these for a work environment because the dopey looking tan speakers I had did not match my sleek little dell and 20 inch flat panel monitor. In terms of looks they fit in really well and mirror the look of the flat panel display nicely. Keep in mind that the speakers are about 10.5 inches high and 4 wide so they are not what I'd call compact. Important to note about these speakers is that they are powered and are not designed to work with a separate subwoofer.
