Summary: This speaker system would get 4-5 stars for sound quality, but it has horrible problems with RF interference. There are two very common cases where you will encounter this problem... 1) Locate a wireless router within 3 feet of the volume control speaker.
Summary: I actually bought these speakers from someone on craigslist a few years ago, but I love them and thought I should write a review. Like some of the other reviewers, I experienced the faint clicking sound after I first got the speakers.
Summary: I purchased these years ago from Target. They went down in price and they gave me the difference. Net spend: about forty bucks. They are primarily used for my net-book, although I plug in a small radio into the auxiliary port from time to time.
Summary: I've had these for a few years now (only because I can't afford a better set) and I have to tell you, the static on them drives me freaking nuts because I play my music quietly and can't cover up the static noise.
Great speaker system -- I'm buying my second one now!

Summary: I bought these speakers because I needed a relatively cheap replacement for my old set, and I've been consistently happy with its sound quality. After two years of use, the volume control knob has picked up an annoying quirk -- there are patches on the knob where the volume jumps to max.
Summary: These are my favorite desk speakers I've owned. I've had them for a couple years now and haven't regretted my purchase. Their sound quality surpasses their price and I would even dare to say they encroach a bit on Bose territory for desk speakers in the pure "audio quality" department.
Great Sound!...If you can get around the interference.

Summary: On display my local Target, these speakers sounded too good to be true for only fifty bucks. Beautiful high-quality sound, a not-to-deep bass from the low-powered subwoofer, and the 'SFX' button (simulates surround sound) just makes these things shine.
Summary: Phenomenal speakers for the price! If you want an amazing sound for a little price, don't look anywhere else. I'm a "quality over quantity" kind of person, so if you want booming sound, look elsewhere. If you want amazing sound and don't want to disrupt your neighbors, you'll love these speakers!
