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 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 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'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.
Summary: I decided to buy it, due to name brand recognition. I decided to love it when I first heard them. Good Lows, mids & highs. It doesn't take up much room, just the typical size for desktop speakers. The sub woofer unit is seperate and can be hidden....since bass is non-directional.
Summary: These speakers are very nice! I bought them used, but they are still a super addition to my gaming rig. The sub is just great and really gives great rocket explosions! Also, the 2 satellites are very impressive for their size. Yes, they are a bit tippy like some reviews have stated.
